A (COVID19) Prayer

Gracious and Loving Father, 

While we feel trapped in our homes, help us to see that we are trapped by sins and free in Christ.

While we look at our screens and feel helpless, help us to look out the window and see your power in nature. 

While we may have lost our day-jobs, show us the work of the Gospel and remind us that night is coming when no man can work.

While we distance ourselves and stand apart, fuse your Church tightly together and make it one as you are One. 

While we wash our hands, remind us that our hearts were washed in the blood of Jesus. 

While we listen to our governments and empty our streets of a virus, help us listen to you and empty them of violence and fill them with your loving kindness. 

As our world is changing, Heaven remains the same. 
As our worries increase, your love for us cannot. 
As we face pressures, you press into us. 
As we find solutions, you nailed yours to a cross. 

Grant your workers knowledge and strength,
your people faith and hope,
your Church power, love and unity.

We will give you all the glory and honor.

In the name of your Son, Jesus

  4. Dear Heidi, thank you. When are you going to publish Wings of the Dawn ~ Prose and Poetry by Heidi Viars in one volume? If I didn’t have my own work to do, I would publish it. But, you should have no trouble finding a publisher. Blessings as you continue to share the Lord’s blessings with us.

      1. Thank you. Oh, how I wish I had someone to hug today. Jerry and I can only hug from a sitting position, since he cannot stand. Praying for the Lord’s leading in your publishing.
