A Prayer

Let us pray for
  • All those who died from the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • Healing and comfort for their families and friends
  • Those who serve on the front lines of the pandemic

"Almighty God, grant to your church your Holy Spirit and the
wisdom which comes down from heaven, that your word may not
be bound but have free course and be preached to the joy and
edifying of Christ's holy people, that in steadfast faith we may
serve you and in the confession of your name abide to the end;
through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord."

“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face.  
Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully
known.  And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest
of these is love.”  1 Corinthians 13:12-13
