COVID-19 PRAYER TOPICS.  Check back later for updates

Pray for all those who have risked their health or even lost their lives tending to the needs of others. Lord we lift to You not just the health and care professionals but those who are serving their communities as volunteers or as staff serving in supermarkets, the supply chain providing us with food and medical needs and all the postal workers and delivery drivers keeping the country supplied with what we need. 

Pray for people who are infected with COVID-19 or facing quarantine. Jesus, during Your ministry on Earth You showed Your power and caring by healing people of all ages and stations of life from physical, mental, and spiritual ailments. Be present now to people who need Your loving touch because of COVID-19. May they feel Your power of healing through the care of doctors and nurses. Take away the fear, anxiety, and feelings of isolation from people receiving treatment or under quarantine. Give them a sense of purpose in pursuing health and protecting others from exposure to the disease. Protect their families and friends and bring peace to all who love them. 

 Pray for people at higher risk of developing the disease. Dear Lord, we lift to You our concern for people who are more likely than others to become severely ill from COVID-19 — the elderly and people with chronic health conditions. Protect them from harm and be their comfort in this time of uncertainty. 

 Pray for medical professionals, caregivers, researchers, and leaders responsible for decisions about fighting the new coronavirus. Father, we seek Your wisdom daily. Be with people making decisions that affect the lives and futures of our families, communities, countries, and the wider world. Inspire and invigorate people developing better tests to diagnose the virus, vaccines to prevent it, and protocols and communication to eliminate the disease's spread. May truth and empathy be the touchstones of people setting policies for our protection.

Please draw the attention of others to these opportunities. We are continuing to consider how we can best minister to those who cannot make use of online facilities.
