The First Congregational Church of Marion, Massachusetts
Where All Are Welcome!
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer”
Creator God, we pray for our world now facing a global pandemic. We ask for wisdom in making decisions to help lessen any harm the Coronavirus may bring. Grant us the strength to be a force of good in combating this disease. We seek ways to be of help to our neighbors, and all people who may be affected. May we be mindful to walk in faith and act in love, both in times of joy, and in times of challenge. Amen.
