Day 13 of Lockdown

It is day 13 of the lockdown due to the war against covid19. Hopefully statistics on morbidity would taper down soon and the lockdown would be lifted and things return to normal–that is, if they will. Let’s pray it would. May the good things learned, the good habits developed, stay. May the hindrances to church fellowship and worship be removed soon enough. May the vulnerable groups continue to be protected. All in all we know all things work together for good to those who love God and to those who are called according to His purpose.
