Thank you God for letting us be vulnerable to you. The world expects us to have a veneer of strength that is antithetical to who we are. May we have people for whom we can share our fears and anxieties. Let us know that there are people for whom we can trust so that we can meet the myriad challenges that life presents us. Give us the empathy to be there for others who are struggling and the compassion to act when we are called upon. Thank you for being the spirit that guides us during these turbulent times. Amen.
