A prayer from the Church of England that certainly resonates with many in our faith communities these days:
"Redundant" – the word says it all - "useless, unnecessary, without purpose, surplus to requirements." Thank you, o God, that in the middle of the sadness, the anger, the uncertainty, the pain, I can talk to you. Hear me as I cry out in confusion, help me to think clearly, and calm my soul. As life carries on, may I know your presence with me each and every day. And as I look to the future, help me to look for fresh opportunities, for new directions. Guide me by your Spirit, and show me your path, through Jesus, the way, the truth and the life. Amen.
