Dear Virginia Annual Conference:

At this extremely difficult and painful time in our nation’s history, let us turn to Almighty God with fervent prayer.

We thank God Almighty that our democracy was preserved yesterday, with Congress able to return to business. We pray for all our leaders that they have wisdom, strength, and composure to address our country’s problems. We pray for sustained peace and healing to embrace our land.

Early this morning, U.S. Senate Chaplain Rev. Barry Black delivered an exemplary and inspiring prayer in his benediction. I urge everyone to listen and reflect upon it. A video of his remarks is here https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1293668617655874

May God Bless America and every one of you.

Peace and Blessings,  
Bishop Sharma D. Lewis
