A Prayer of Thanksgiving for Zoom
Holy God, we give you thanks that we can worship you together in-person in the church building as of next Sunday!
At the same time, we mark this last service together on Zoom, and we give you thanks for this software platform. Thank you for giving your people the talents and skill to develop this communication tool.
For over a year, Zoom has enabled us to safely have and be church from home in the midst of a terrible pandemic.
We give you thanks that we have had access to computers, phones, tablets, and stable internet.
Of course, it hasn’t always been easy – we learned a great deal along the way. There were those times when someone not being muted led to a phone ringing or a dog barking during prayer or the sermon.
