Prayer and Encouragement:
-Take time to pray for the people around you. Pray that God will give them perspective and help them to see His will during this time.
-Take some time to encourage others. How have you missed gathering together on the Lord's day with them? What are you most looking forward to when you are able to worship in fellowship again?
