Scriptures and Prayers for March 15-21

Questions for reflection on the Scriptures

What does the passage say about loving God?

How are we to love our neighbor?

What does loving our neighbor look like in a time of social distancing and other measures to protect our communities—especially the most vulnerable—from COVID-19?

Prayer (feel free to use your own words instead!)

God of love,

who is present with us in every time and type of trouble,

pour out your mercy, your protection, your healing, and your peace upon all your people,

especially………

thank you for all those who are bringing hope and healing …..

In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.
