Prayer during Corona

YOU made the whole world stop spinning for a while,
YOU silenced the noise that we all have created
YOU made us bend our knees again and ask for a miracle.
YOU closed Your churches so we will realize how dark our world without You in it.
YOU humble the proud and powerful. The economy is crashing, businesses are closing.

 We were very proud,
         we thought that everything we have, everything we possess was the result of our hard work.
         We have forgotten that it was always Your grace and mercy that made us who we are.
         We’re like running in circles looking for some cure to this disease, but in fact it takes humility to ask for Your wisdom.
         We’ve been living our lives like we will be here on earth forever, like there’s no heaven.
         Maybe these trials are Your mercy in disguise.
         Maybe this virus is actually Your way of purifying us, cleansing our soul, bringing us back to YOU.

.. In the past you serenaded us with Hosea’s song:

*“Come back to me with all your heart*
*Don't let fear keep us apart*
*Trees do bend though straight and tall*
*So, must we to others' call*
*Long have I waited for*
*Your coming home to me*
*And living deeply our new lives”*

          *You have been patiently waiting for us. *
           We’re so sorry for ignoring Your voice. For our selfish ways.
           We all deserve this.
*We have forgotten You dear Father.*

....... We’ve forgotten that You’re God,
*You only need to say the words and our souls shall be healed.*
