Have you been feeling disoriented in the last few days? One of the most helpful things we can do when we start feeling anxious about the unknown is to channel our anxiety into actual prayer. But how do we pray for something we have never experienced before? Sometimes it can help to have a prayer that’s already been written and to pray it in community (even if it has to be online community right now). Here’s one prayer you can pray aloud with others to help spur you on to pray more. As you pray through it, listen for the ways that Jesus is praying with you and leave a comment to let others know how you are being stirred to pray too.

Our heavenly Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
We worship you as the Creator and Redeemer of all things.
Thank you, Father, for your loving care for all of creation.
