Well friends, our “30 Days of Prayer in the Midst of Covid-19” comes to an end, and I am rejoicing in the hope that’s to come. You give me hope! You point me to our Almighty God. And He is our hope. Your faith, sticking with us throughout these last thirty days, has been inspiring.

Concerned Women for America (CWA) leaders from around the country were excited to join this effort, and we experienced a spiritual unity that is truly miraculous. It was a gift of God to my life. I hope you had the experience so many on our staff here in Washington, D.C., had. When a day in social isolation was particularly difficult, we would get that notice of that daily prayer, and the words of the page were a balm to our soul. It gave us words to say and helped us take the right posture in the presence of the Creator of the Universe.

I believe this effort will bear much fruit for us in the days ahead as we continue to face the challenges that still await us. This is a time for us to celebrate and gather much fruit in the spirit. Remember the fruits of the Spirit mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23? “Love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control,” this is what we will reap. Let us extend our hands and hearts then in worship and thanksgiving, and pray together once again as we close this effort:

Thank you, Lord!
Thank you, Abba Father.
You are faithful, and
You are good.

You have helped us endure during
This COVID-19 crisis, and more than that
You are continually revealing Yourself to us;
Even in the hardest days of this trial.

You are always near, even when we fail
To see or feel in our humanity. Thank you,
For being our loving Father and patiently awaiting
Our return, as the prodigal son.

Wonderful Counselor, we implore You to remain
With us as we continue to tackle the challenges
Of this coronavirus and what is to come as we open
Our country back in every facet of life.

Give us strength and conviction to make the hard decisions
That must be made and help us to be compassionate at all times.
Give us patience and discernment, help us sort out
Those who would take advantage of our fragile state.

Help our President and all our leaders to have vision
To act in the best interest of our country, even when much uncertainty remains.
Help them to trust You, for nothing is impossible for You.
May we look back in retrospect and praise You for Your wondrous works through COVID-19.

In Jesus Name we pray,
Amen.

That’s it! You made it: 30 Days of Prayer in the Midst of COVID-19, done. You should be proud. I am so thankful for your support. May God continue to bless you beyond measure.

Continue to pray for CWA as we turn to planning the return of our national staff to our headquarters and as we work with activists around the nation who are deeply involved in supporting state authorities to reopen America.

In Christ,
