In the middle of yet another national lockdown, may we offer up our fears and anxieties to the Lord.

Prayer in time of home confinement

Dear Lord Jesus,

When I look at other people’s houses from the outside,
I imagine they are all enjoying days of cosiness and companionship.
Forgive me, Lord, but I envy those people who have a tranquil home.
As day after day, I ‘shelter in place’ in my house,
I find that this is not a refuge from tension, anger, shouting, and worse…
Lord, protect me and anyone who lives in fear in their own home.
Defender of the weak, I need your help and I place myself in the
shadow of the cross.
