Loving God, we want to take some time to thank you for all you have done, all you are doing, and all you are about to do in the lives of those who love you. We know that we have but to ask, and you will grant us your peace — the peace that passes all understanding. We know you are able to heal the sick in all the ways they need to be healed. We are confident that you will comfort your people who are lonely, those who are homeless and hungry. You can and you will bless those who are lost and alone. You have told us these things in your holy word, and we stand on your word today, O God. We cast our anxiety on you because we know that you care for us. We ask that you release us from our worry today.
We pray that you will touch all of those who have been impacted by this pandemic. Touch them in all the ways they need to be touched, O God. Bless them in all the ways you see fit to bless them, by your grace. Give them peace in their minds and peace in their spirits. We acknowledge that you are in control.
So, we place our trust in you, O God, now and forever. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
