Being Prayed All Over The World In Light of the Covid-19 Pandemic
If you are struggling to find the right words in this season here are some prompts. Let us join together in prayer...
Lord Jesus, when You walked with us on earth, You spread Your healing power. You drew near to the poor, the hurting, and the marginalized.
Grant us Your presence.
We place in Your loving care all those around the world who are experiencing sickness and affliction.

Grant us Your wisdom.
We lift up all doctors, medical professionals, and those in the health field, who are experiencing the weight of caring for the sick while also caring for themselves and their loved ones.
Lord, grant them Your strength, resilience, and endurance.
We lift up those who are tempted towards hoarding and self protection, rather than considering the needs of others.

We lift up those who are experiencing hatred, fear, and xenophobia.

And now as our Savior taught us, so we pray:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial, and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are Yours, now and forever. Amen.
