I hope each of you will take a moment each day, morning and evening, to say the prayers at the end of this email. Before quarantine, we all had our habits - both good and bad. When quarantine began, it became necessary to increase our spiritual practices. As we enter our third month of isolation, I hope we continue in our prayers, our connections and our Clinging to Jesus.

PS Prayer for strange times:
In the morning:
This is another day, O Lord. I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord for whatever it may be. If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently. And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly. Make these words more than words and give me the Spirit of Jesus. Amen.
In the evening:
Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or
weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who
sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless
the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the
joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen.
