King Jesus, my heart breaks for humanity as I see the numbers increase: the tests, the infected, the intubated, the dying. ‘Going viral’ is a terrible phrase. Forgive us, help us, Lord. Bring us up from this pit of darkness. Drive the threat away. Defeat the enemy. Bring us to a sacred space where we know your peace. Renew the joy of your salvation. I ask in the power and authority of your name above all names, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.” (Psalm 40:2 ESV)
