When a situation is beyond our control, we put our trust in God, who has promised through Christ to be always with us. In this time of anxiety, fear and uncertainties when people are isolated and feel lonely, stranded abroad, losing income sources and losing loved ones, we need to focus on prayer even more.
It is suggested that we pray at 19.00 hour every day for a few minutes. We listen and speak with God, giving thanks to God for all those who are working hard to overcome the impact of Covid-19, economic emergency and are supporting the people in dire need. We also pray for peace for us and others.
“I lift up my eyes to the hills– where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. Indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.” (Psalm 121:1)
