Prayer from Vice president of Conference

Creator God
You never promised that your world would be trouble-free.
You have granted such freedom to your creation,
that things do go wrong.
And yet,
in the midst of pain, suffering and uncertainty,
we know you are present.
In Christ, you showed that clearly.
Be with us,
the whole of your creation,
in our struggles,
and as you help us,
in your wisdom:
to build the medical knowledge we need
to combat the coronavirus;
and to provide the logistical know-how
to feed all who need to be fed;
not just now,
but always.
In the name of Christ we pray.
