The Christian Post reports:
Pastor Bruce Wesley of the multi-campus Clear Creek Community Church in Texas, which recently made headlines as some 125 youth and adults got infected with what officials suspect is the COVID-19 Delta variant after attending a church-sponsored student ministry camp, publicly prayed for God’s “mercy” as his church was forced to shutter for a second week.
“We ask for your mercy. We ask for your healing for all of those who became sick with this virus and for their families who’ve been caring for them as well. We pray for complete recovery so that people don’t have any lingering effects, and we pray that there would be a stop, you would put a stop to the spread of this virus.”
In the video below, Wesley prays, “Father, we didn’t want to be in the news. At least not for this.”
He also asks God to give solace to the church members who are now too ill to go on a “mission trip to the Dominican Republic.”
