(From our elder team)
Lord, how do I pray?
You are the God who rules above all. We are weary. We are discouraged by constantly changing
regulations. We are bombarded with images and narrative from the media. What is really true? Which
is worse? Covid? The cure? Or the fall out from all the restrictions and lock downs? Either way Satan is
hard at work to steal, kill, and destroy. But, how do we pray about it? I pray for mercy, I pray for
