As we are aware, the Coronavirus is affecting people all over the world and many are panicking. Yes, we are to be concerned with this situation, but rather than letting fear rule our lives right now, take the time to read the excellent, common-sense advice from Dr. James Robb (a Virologist and Pathologist) about taking care of yourself during the COVID-19 pandemic.
There is also a need for mighty prayer for and about this situation. The prayer below was in my latest Pocket Testament League newsletter.
Prayer for COVID-19
CEO, The Pocket Testament League
I invite you to pray for our country, the world, in fact every individual, to be delivered from COVID-19.
President Donald Trump has asked, that “no matter where you be, I encourage you to turn toward prayer…”
If I could be with you, in a global room, praying, I would no doubt hear our multitude of prayers rising to God’s throne-room. I invite you to pray for our country, the world, in fact every individual, to be delivered from COVID-19. I invite you to pray for our leaders in authority over us: our president, our governors, our legislatures and our courts, both federal and state.
Because we cannot be together, I offer the prayer below:
Almighty God, I praise you as the creator of our universe, our planet, and this good land that you have graciously given us as our heritage.
I pray that I may always prove myself mindful of your love and goodness, and that I will be glad to do your will.
Lord, I pray today for this world, for our nation, for every single person who has been created in your image, to be delivered from this global disease.
Father, your Word in Isaiah 59:1, tells us, “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear;”
Father, your Word goes onto say in verse 2, “but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear.”
Father, by your Holy Spirit convict my mind and heart of my sin, that I may repent and run to you for forgiveness offered by and through the precious blood of your Son.
Father, by your Holy Spirit, turn the hearts of all people to you. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way.
Father, bless our leaders: our president, our governors, our federal and state legislatures and courts. Fill them with strength and wisdom. Spur them on to truth and righteousness.
Father, finally, I pray that our faith in you never fail, that we number our days, that we live as people of hope, whose home is with you, and that we keep our eyes fixed on your Son, the author and perfecter of our faith, in whose mighty Name we pray, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
