A Liturgy for Washing of the Hands I

Wash us, O Father, with the water of wellness

Cleanse us, O Christ, and make us whole

Scrub us, O Spirit, to scour our lives.

From the germs that cling to us, wash us into freedom

From the fear that clings to us, wash us into hope

From the flippancy that clings to us, wash us into care.

 

Let us engage this time of virus

Wakened by Your gracious waters

Willing to be washed once more.

Amen.
