Closing prayer and benediction
Our Heavenly Father,
This week, we as the family of NewLife Community Church, come to you in prayer. We ask that you be with those who are sick. Please heal and comfort them. We lift up all healthcare workers in prayer: may you protect and strengthen them. We think of those who are especially vulnerable to disease. Please let this sickness pass over them, and show them how to ask for help. We pray for those who are unemployed at this time. Please provide for them through their families and communities. We also pray for our national and local leaders. Please give them the wisdom to do what is best for all. We also think of students and families at this time. Please give them patience and discipline. Finally, we pray for churches. Please show them how to best show the love of Christ at this time. Amen.
Now may the God of endurance and comfort give you unity with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
