While we endure this time of the virus
we might forget the gift of life You have given us. 
Trials test but strengthen our faith. 
You have promised that if we ask we shall receive. 
We ask that we might do Your will. 
We are confident that this crisis will bring
a deeper appreciation of the fullness of life
that you have promised to those who place
their trust in You.

Amen.

— By a Columban Missionary
