Dear, Heavenly Father,
I know that you will hear my voice as well as those who are currently suffering with CoVid19 in one way or another. I want to thank you for carrying me through a peaceful night of sleep – for giving me another day to enjoy – for giving me hope to look forward instead of back.
All of us are more than a little fearful right now, because of the spreading of this disease and the lives that are being taken. We grieve for our friends and those we don’t know. We think about death now more than we did yesterday. We wonder if we will succumb to the virus. Our thoughts turn to our families and extended families even though we aren’t able to touch them or be near them. The entire world is being affected by this cloud of darkness and the unknown.
Our leaders are doing the best they can, but this is something that really is out of their hands. We would like to think we have control in a situation like this, but we find ourselves helpless. There is no cure – no vaccine – no amount of distancing that will provide an end. It’s natural for us to feel this way. Anxiety and depression are at an all time high.
Still, in spite of our fears, we know that in a changing world – where nothing is constant – only You remain the same today as you were yesterday and will be tomorrow. We can depend on that. We can’t depend on hoards of food or material things. We can’t put our trust in anything outside the walls of our own homes. We can put our faith in only One thing right now and that’s You.
You are the Great Physician. Your knowledge and wisdom will be used to turn this chaotic situation into something good that will change hearts and minds and put life into perspective. Because of that, we can be sure that our world will continue. Things will return to normal, but they will be ever changed because of this.
Please give those who are trying desperately to find a cure and hold this virus at bay, the strength and brain power to solve the problem. I pray that we will learn to love each other more – care for each other’s needs – hold each other in prayer – learn to serve you more. We can and will beat this thing only with your intervention. We pray for that and all things through your dear Son, Jesus. Amen!
