We struggle to stand

the whole world over

under the weight of incredible loss and grief.

We struggle to hope

the whole world over

in the face of uncertainty and anxious fears.

We struggle to love

the whole world over

in defiance of borders and flags.

God, help us to hold each other tight

the whole world over –

trusting that You hold us

the whole world over –

all of us – in the palm of Your hands. Amen.
