Covid-19 Offerings from Northern Nevada's Interfaith Community

April 10, 2020: Offering from Native American Community

Dear God, Creator of all creation,

At times we are obstructed to pray. For we do not know where to begin. We wait on your guidance and illumination. During this time of a destructive pandemic, everyone is affected. We come to realize how interconnected we are one to another. We pause to realize the fragility of our existence. The relationships with nature, animals – our pets, ecologically – within our home, workplace, places of worship, and everyday gatherings. Our safe spaces have become places of concern and deliberation, may we find refuge in the secret place of the most high.

In these trying times of uncertainty, let us give thanks for all of Gods provision. We are grateful for clean air, clean water, and the land that sustains us. We are grateful for the relatives among us. We give thanks with a joyful heart for peace and comfort. Our admission of thanksgiving that we may, in turn, be able to give to others in their time of distress. We thank you for your Holy Spirit that is our Paracletus – comforter. Your blessings extends through us toward others in every way: physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually; holistically allow us to be image bearers of hope, faith, and charitable love.

We humble ourselves before your sight, we speak healing and restoration. We extend a petition of prayers spread as a woven blanket over humanity. We lift prayers to individuals, as well communities, as well as countries and nations. We pray for leaders in high positions and servants in meek service. Yet open our eyes that each are equal in gifting and talent essential for tasks set before them. As we grow closer to you allowing us to grow closer to one another.

Entrusted to the Almighty, your Kingdom come your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Yeshua -JesuChristo you are our all in all, Great Physician, Prince of Peace, Mighty Counselor, Lord and Saviour. In you name we pray. All Benevolent Father, Son and Holy Ghost- Divine Trinity.
