Oh, that I might have my request, that God would grant what I hope for. - Job 6:8
Even though uncertainty might seem to loom large in our lives, we can still bring our hopes to God. While our partners in India and Nepal work through the COVID crisis, we can continue to bring our shared hope of an end to this pandemic to God.
It is such a privilege to be able to come before God with our thanksgiving and requests. It is such an encouragement to know that He hears us. He knows the desires of our hearts and the burdens of our minds before we put them into words. Yet, still, He listens and delights to hear our prayers.
We continue to lift up frontline healthcare workers in India, Nepal and around the world as countries remain in the grip of COVID-19. Lord, keep them safe, renew their strength. and help them to continue showing care and compassion in the current crisis.
