Some are anxious about being locked down,
others are anxious as we begin to unlock.
Some like the security of being locked down,
for others being locked down has been far from secure.
Please help us to navigate the next steps.
Keep us safe, keep us kind.
And keep us aware that for many the storm still rages.
So Lord, we thank you for this new day, and all the opportunities it brings.
A time to rest and unwind, to rejoice in creation and celebrate life.
A time to reflect and worship, and a time to meet with you.
Thank you that you have been with us over recent times,
Always there by our side, guiding our footsteps, lighting our path,
And leading us forward through difficult days.
Thank you for the assurance that you will walk with us in the days ahead.
Whatever they will bring, whatever challenges we may face.
Giving us the strength we need, and Your peace that cannot be shaken.
For this and every moment, we bring you our grateful praise.
