Please continue to pray for all those who are struggling in our world and in our country. We pray for the healing of wounds, for our elected officials; may they work for unity and for the good of the country. We also pray for our essential workers, and those working in hospitals seeking to save lives. As Christians our call is to love as Jesus did.
