A prayer for when we fear we are not enough


We read the news.
It makes us anxious.

Anxious for our families, for our communities, for our world.

We wonder, sometimes worry, what will happen.

Will we be enough? Can we do enough?
Will the people who make decisions make the right ones?
Will those of us who make decisions, make the best one?


You know the news, too.
It doesn’t make you anxious at all.

You care about our families, our communities, our world.

You are enough.

Give us your peace and your presence and your wisdom.
Enough for today, at least.

Please. Thank you.
