God of all power and might, we humble ourselves before you in the midst of these trying times. We know that you are Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. Therefore, as your lowly servants, we ask that you cover us in order that we may cover those who are especially in need. Help us to be better servants. Help us to be more loving toward each other so that whatever we do it will be pleasing in your sight. In the name of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen!
