A Prayer for Zoom


A Prayer for Zoom

~ by Carl Josehart


Blessed are You, Adonai, our God, Sovereign of the universe,

who formed human beings with intelligence and wisdom

to create technology that helps connect individuals with one another

across great distances

to allow people to draw near to one another

while physically far apart


We experience every day the fragility of these connections

that if even one of the ports or networks should be misdirected

it would not be possible

to bring families together

to share joys and sorrows

for congregations to worship as a community

to see into the eyes and faces of those we love

to feel close

to experience community


Blessed are You, Adonai

who blessed our minds with the power to use technology

to find meaningful connections

to create opportunities for healing

to bring joy and sustain community in times of challenge
