Merciful God, who knows our innermost fears and desires, be with those who wait today. Bring comfort to those who wait in grief, energy to those who anticipate the future with hope, and mindfulness of the present to those who only know how to look ahead. May we find peace in being present to the people and places we encounter today for we know that you are in the midst of each and every moment. In the name of our holy companion we pray, Amen.
We invite you to spend time in quiet meditation on this image. How might you be present to others today, even across distance?
