Place A Protective Covering of Us

Lord, thank you for your grace and your mercy.  Father, God, the world is still suffering from COVID-19.  And, sadly, most Americans feel they are immune to the virus despite CDC’s warnings and government suggestions.

If we, Americans, don’t join together and set healthier boundaries beyond what officials have suggested it will change the face of America and the world forever.  And it grieves me to learn that Black communities are being hit the hardest.

I don’t know why so many Black people won’t follow the rules.  Including one of my own children.  Or could it be that hospital’s are sending infected black people home, and, as a result, they are infecting others.  And!  It infuriates me to know my son lied to me to gain shelter.  And, I allowed him back into the house after being places only you know of.

Please protect me and Michael from Kaleph’s foolishness.  Michael and I are following the rules.  We’re staying home.  We’re practicing social distance.  We’re concern about ourselves as well as others.

Lord, Black people are at the bottom of the list when it comes to receiving quality healthcare and barely on that list as being part of the human race.  We deserve services to sustain life and lives.  Yet, it always seem we’re last to receive fair treatment despite our stations in a world you created.

Lord, quicken the spirits of my people.  Deliver those that suffer from delusional minds.  Guide us!  We need your help.  Reports are showing we’re dying at records numbers.  Show us how to protect ourselves, our loved ones, our friends and our family during these perilous times.  Let there truly become unity in the black communities.  Not because we are better or want more than other races but because we’re dying at record numbers.  Amen
