Prayer for When there are No Good Answers

Adapted from Amanda Meisenheimer, Minister of Children and Families, The Riverside Church, NYC


Every path is broken.

If I send my child to school, there is danger.

If I keep my child home, there is disarray.

Every path is broken.

If I go back to work, there is no more homeschooling. No more childcare. And I might get sick.

If I stay home, the bills pile up. The rent goes unpaid.

Every path is broken.

We are lonely and we miss our people, our loved ones.

But when we gather, people suffer.

Every path is broken.

As a disappointing summer moves toward the uncertainty of the new school year, we ask for your protection for those in the classroom.

We ask for your wisdom for those making decisions.

We ask for your creativity as we navigate new ways to learn and teach and stay connected.

Most of all, in a world where every path is broken, we ask that you mount us up on wings like eagles so that we can see with a new perspective beyond brokenness to new life.
