Lord God, as this day begins we pray that you will guide our attitude to be grateful and joyful so that we do not allow fear or sadness to erode our faith. When we hear of those who have died with the corona virus, and when we hear the desperate needs of so many. Give us the courage to let our faith and trust in you drive our attitudes and behaviors so that we always rely on you to lead us through all the events of life. Give us the compassion of Christ Jesus who sought to bring healing to those who were hurting. In His name we pray, Amen.
