- Those seeking to help the church be the church in a time of uncertainty.
God, help them to creatively imagine how to pastor their congregants and love their communities as well

God, give them courage and creativity, provide them with words of hope, and equip them to love and serve those around them.
God help us to live as your children, being transformed to the pattern of Jesus, our Savior.
Help us to let the fruit of the Spirit shape every aspect of our character that we may be loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self-controlled in all we do.
May your Holy Spirit inspire us to pray, to give, to love, to serve, and to proclaim the gospel, that the name of Jesus Christ might be glorified around the world.
