Ben and Matt reflect on how single people are experiencing the pandemic very differently than those with families, and offer a prayer for those who live alone.
Here’s the prayer (by W. David O. Taylor):
Oh Lord, you who were alone in the wilderness and in the garden,
be with me in this time of singleness and solitude;
and when I feel tempted to believe
that I have been abandoned by friends and forsaken by God,
may I sense the sweet presence of your Spirit
and the ministering care of your angels,
nourishing me in my hour of need,
so that I might know that I am never alone
but rather filled and fortified by your very real presence.
In your name. Amen.
