A Prayer for Intercession

God of our salvation:

The world is on fire.
Rather than trust or vulnerability,
fear and anxiety have become our ways of being.

Our schools are not safe.
Our homes are not safe.
Our streets are not safe.
Our places of worship are not safe.

We grasp for any lifeline that will pull us from this pit,
but find only tattered threads.
We are lost in the desert of our own undoing.
We do not trust ourselves or others to perform any benevolent act,
no matter how small.

The world is on fire.

Move us from this place of scarcity.
Give us the vision to see your abundance,
even in the midst of such destruction.

Remind us, O God,
that you are within and beyond the smoke,

We haven’t the words.
Come Spirit, come.
