A WORLD IN NEED OF PRAYER
We live in difficult times. We are engulfed by a worldwide pandemic in which death tolls dominate the headlines, healthcare systems are overwhelmed, scientists race to find a vaccine, and facemasks have become commonplace. Though we are made for community, entire populations obey orders to “stay at home,” so we live in isolation. Social media substitutes for social gatherings; social distancing becomes a social necessity. Schools are shuttered, businesses are boarded up, and churches are closed. Normalcy eludes us.
