Lord, lift the COVID cloud that hides
what we too long have been denied...
a meal with friends, a loved one's hug
and seeing someone's face.
Lord, may the vaccine stop the spread
and end the spike of daily dead.
Please give us strength to work the plan
our leaders have put forth.
For those who grieve, we pray Your peace
while pleading this pandemic cease.
And as we trust Your unseen hand,
we reach in faith to You. Amen.
