2Peter 3:8-13

Beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

Heavenly Father, we thank you that even in the darkest of days, you will never leave us. We thank you that you love each one of us and that you continue to work your way in the world, despite it being full of this dreaded Coronavirus. We pray for those who are suffering at this time, and for those who are anxious and worried. Please bring comfort and healing and assure them of your continued presence with them.

Lord, in your mercy - Hear our prayer.
