Father God, we boast in our lineage, our connections, our strength, our intellect. But before we or any of those qualities existed, You were the I AM.
Not the developing, becoming, or evolving, not past or future, but forever present and utterly complete—always, now, and forever.
The I AM.
You, the self-sufficient God needing nothing yet sustaining everything, shows love, mercy and grace to mankind—extraordinary in our own eyes but feeble in our flesh.
We made the mistake of making what’s seen larger than You because you’re unseen. Now at the threat of a virus unseen we ask You to show us who You are.
We thought we knew, but we don’t.
Rise up, great I AM, and show yourself strong. Show us how You are everything we need and more. Humbled in your presence we ask You, with hearing hearts, to speak to us.
We’re staring in the face of the unknown right now. There are so many unanswered questions. We don’t know what to do but, our eyes are on You.
We take cover under your wings, surrounded by your faithfulness. And we take You at your word. Surely, you’ll save us from the deadly pestilence and the fear it breeds.
It’s in the mighty name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
