we offer God prayers for one another.
“May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from God’s glorious power.” Colossians 1: 11a
God offers strength. God provides strength.
“Do not fear; for I am with you. Do not be dismayed; for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

On behalf of all who are hurting, we pray for the strength Christ gives.
Rely on God.
God is with you.
