This was the year of Thanksgiving
that almost wasn"t. The COVID-19
Pandemic was in full force, spreading
the Coronavirus to every continent
and clime. Some U.S. governors
imposed stay-at-home lock downs.
Many of our citizenry became irritated
and angry, especially when one of their
family-members, or friends contracted
the virus and died.
O mighty God of the universe. We know
you have traveled with us throughout the
travail of this past year, comforting and
consoling each one of us
We continue to cry out for thy warm hands,
that they may touch us all for that needed healing
of bodies and souls.
Instill in us the joy of repentance as we ask
of thee forgiveness and relief.
Help us to use this time of trial to advance
our spiritual lives toward thee.
In Jesus' name,
