A Prayer to Heal
God, help me and my family to get our minds back on you. I know we need to stop thinking about what is going on in this world. Help us to be faithful in prayer. May your spirit watch over us and protect us. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Deacon Tressie Carter
Prayer For Us All
Eternal One, these past five months have been very difficult for us. Many of us have experienced losses in so many areas of our lives. We have watched as loved ones were snatched away by Covid 19 and we were not able to be with them as they took that last breath. Some of us were told we would not be able to continue to work in our usual location and were shuffled from our jobs to working from home while others were forced to work without PPE in the midst of spiraling numbers of death all around.
We saw our country take a giant leap backwards to injustices, some that just did not seem possible in 2020. Our children have been denied their freedom to be children as they were no longer able to be with classmates, see their favorite teachers, play with friends or in some cases, even be outdoors. Many of us grew up believing that 20-20 was perfect vision, but in the case of this year, our vision of the world we knew has vanished before our very eyes. We are unsure how our new world will look.
But I know that you Eternal One, are the One Consistent Presence Upon whom we can depend. May The Light Of Your Child, Jesus The Anointed, shine upon us and show us the way to be better, be greater, be the change that we would like to see in our world, but more important that we be the people You Created Us To Be. We humbly come Trusting and Believing that You Still Work All Things Out For Our Good. Hear Our Pleas and Prayers in The Mighty Name Of Jesus! Amen, Ashe’, May It Be So And So Shall It Be!
