Today churches across America are gathering and praying for God’s hand of protection. We are also asking God to use this time to make Himself known to others.
Join with others from River and pray this prayer today.
Jesus, we praise you this morning as the unchangeable God!
We know that the grass may wither and the flowers fade, but you will always remain.
You are the same yesterday, today, and forever.
We take comfort in this truth.
We come to you this morning lifting
our prayers to you concerning the coronavirus.
First, we ask that in your mercy, you would stop this pandemic and save lives.
Save lives, not only in our community but around the world,
especially in places that are unequipped medically to deal with the virus.
We ask that you, give President Trump and other government leaders,
including international, federal, state, and local leaders,
wisdom to direct us in the best courses of action for prevention and care.
We pray that you protect our missionaries and their families around the globe,
Please use this crisis to advance the gospel.
Finally, we ask that you give each of us wisdom in moving forward.
We know many people are fearful as the foundations of what they’ve known and trusted in have been shaken.
We pray that they would realize how fragile life is and how real eternity is.
We pray that they would see their need and turn to you.
Help us be aware of opportunities to share the gospel.
We pray that we would be a courageous people who have no fear of sudden disaster.
You alone are our confidence!
