He continues to be the God who hears our groaning. He hears the cry of the nurse or the doctor struggling to cope with massive pressures on the healthcare system. He hears the cry of His child gasping for breath as the virus takes grip upon the lungs. He hears the sob of one who has lost a loved one, being deprived of the opportunity to say that final crucial farewell, he hears the cry of a family worrying about their financial future, he hears the cry of the church longing for a renewed spiritual consciousness in these desperate times.
