Prayers Needed For Classmates, Etc.

Please pray for Ina Lott Whittington and her daughter, Rhonda.  They both have Omicron Variant. Also, for my Great Grandson Tidus who lives in Montana with Covid.  I have been having issues with my left leg with a vascular stasis ulcer.  Also, trying to move in a couple of weeks to a new apartment.  Just found out that my daughter, Debra Ann has Covid.  

Omicron Variant is hitting way too close to everyone's home. With a sad heart but with a strong faith in Almighty God today I kneel down in prayer, asking for a full recovery of those with Covid-19 and the Omicron Variant and in pain, and yes Lord I'm asking You to protect and cover us with Your mercy and forgiveness. Please protect and strengthen us and the elderly, homeless, unemployed, sick, front liners, and caregivers who are exhausted but not giving up.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name,
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
