Pray for our State President and our Government leaders and all those involved in providing the essential services we need at this time. Pray that God would protect them and continue to give them Wisdom to carry out their responsibilities.
Pray for God to restrain the spirit of lawlessness and frustration which is seen in many who disregard the rules and guidelines of the lockdown, putting themselves and others at risk.
Pray for our church family and especially the elderly and the shut-ins who are unable to have visitors or to see their family at this time. Pray that God would give our elders and small groups leaders wisdom as they try to connect with and care for our church during the lockdown.
Now may the God of peace, who brought up from the
dead our Lord Jesus—the great Shepherd of the sheep—through the blood of the
everlasting covenant, equip you with
everything good to do his will, working in us what is pleasing in his sight,
through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
