Our Prayer for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Global Pandemic; Please join us in prayer
“Indeed, the Lord’s arm is not too weak to save, and his ear is not too deaf to hear. But your iniquities are separating you from your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not listen.” (Isaiah 59:1–2, CSB)
God, in Your mercy, to stop this pandemic and save lives — not only in our communities but around the world, particularly in places that are unequipped medically to deal with the virus.
“Let everyone submit to the governing authorities, since there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are instituted by God. So then, the one who resists the authority is opposing God’s command, and those who oppose it will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have its approval. For it is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, because it does not carry the sword for no reason. For it is God’s servant, an avenger that brings wrath on the one who does wrong.” (Romans 13:1–4, CSB)
We pray for President Donald Trump and other government leaders — international, federal, state, and local — to have the wisdom to direct us in the best courses of action for prevention and care.
“Teach us to number our days carefully so that we may develop wisdom in our hearts.” (Psalm 90:12, CSB)
We pray that You, Lord will give us wisdom in this moment of fear as the foundations of what we know are shaken, that others would realize how fragile life is and how real eternity is, and they would see their need to turn to You, God.
“Then he said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15, CSB)
We ask You, God to protect our missionaries and their families around the globe, using this global crisis to advance Your Good News to the whole world.
