Lord, give us the endurance needed to get through this difficult time. Our families and loved ones have been affected and we are now recognizing the need to be in Your hands, O Almighty Father. We have been trying and living on our own for so long and today we see that we can’t live without You. Return us O Lord back to You and be merciful to Your creation which Your hands have made. Lord we submit ourselves to You and Your will in our lives. Please teach us O Lord to offer true repentance. You are our refuge and our help. We trust You and we submit to You. Amen.
