A Prayer for Days when the Economic News is Grim

Creator God,

Help us to remember the message of the angels, "Be not afraid." Help us to truly believe that in your economy, all will find care, from the sparrow to the sweet gum tree, from the infant to the infirm, from the jellyfish to the giant redwood. Remind us that you have claimed us for your own, and you will not abandon us to the whims of economic tides. Rescue us from the terrors that wake us at night, the feverish fears that press down upon us. Grant us your peace.
