I pray for my health and my friends’ and family’s health in this trying time of COVID, and winter cold. I pray for my sister in jail, and my friend N in a mental hospital, and all those who are not able to be in homes they can call their own. I pray for all those dissatisfied with their jobs and their lives that they might find greater ease and purpose, joy and wonder. I pray for my country’s future and the future of our species in the midst of climate change. I pray all this in the Lord’s name, Jesus Christ, through whom all good things come.
