It seems like lots of uncertainty around us. So many people who need prayers.
Today, I pray…
For those whose health is compromised by the coronavirus or other health issues.
For those who suffer from the economic impact of the virus, in travel, manufacturing, hospitality, energy or so many other industries.
For healthcare workers and first responders, and other public servants who put themselves in harm’s way for us.
For our leaders of the world, our countries, states, and cities, as they seek to help manage this challenge
God, it can be overwhelming. But you tell us over and over again not to be afraid.
Show me how to trust in you.
As I examine my heart this Lenten season, help me to turn away from my concern with self,
and turn my heart, hands, and prayers toward the concerns of others.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
