A Prayer for Connection

Dear God

Being alone is hard. We were created for community. not confinement. But we’re grateful that no matter how alone we feel, You never leave or forsake us. And we’re grateful for technology that helps us stay in touch with each other. Today, please remind us that this time of social distancing and isolation will not last forever. Give us the strength to endure this difficult season, and deepen our connection with You and Your people. Empower us with an extra dose of your love, peace, hope and joy, because we need it. Remind us of your promises, and please heal our land.

In Jesus, Name, Amen

A Prayer for the Global Church

Dear God.

Thank You that we get to be a part of Your global Church at this moment. Thank You for the opportunity to spread Your love and hope to a world living in darkness and despair. Your Word says that if Your people humble themselves, turn away from wickedness, and call on Your Name, that You WILL answer them and heal their land. So we, Your people, are asking Your forgiveness for the times we’ve chosen not to love the people You have put in front of us. Allow this season to strengthen Your Church and to remind us of how much You love this hurting world. Please heal our land and use us to meet the needs of others. Grow our faith as You grow Your global Church. Come, Lord Jesus, and do what only you can do.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for Frontliners

Heavenly Father, thank You for the frontliners caring for, protecting, and serving our communities, our families, and us. Thank You for these servant leaders, called to this work, trained for such a time as this, daily risking their own health and safety for others.

Please protect them from harm. Give them courage and strength. Draw close, Lord, and let them feel Your presence throughout the long hours they are working.

Father, please provide everything they need, both for the people they are serving and for their loved ones. Surround them with people who will help and support them and their families, even as they selflessly care for others.

You said we would face troubles in this world, but also that You had overcome it. Please work together with our frontliners, Lord, to ultimately bring about the best outcome possible.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for our Leaders

Dear God.

All authority is yours, but you have given authority to leaders to protect and guide us. Today, we ask that You would give all our leaders wisdom, discernment, Strength and resolve. Keep them healthy, safe and rested so they can continue to guide us through this troubling time. Give our GOVERNMENT LEADERS wisdom about what needs to be done to stop the virus and stabilise our economy. Give our SPIRITUAL LEADERS Your discernment on how to meet people’s needs as they continue to glorify Your name and encourage the Church. Give our MEDICAL LEADERS insight into how to stop the virus. Strengthen their resolve and honour their hard work in creating a treatment for COVID-19. Give our CIVIC LEADERS inspiration, courage, joy and strength to meet the needs of their communities. And HELP US in our communities to display courage, hope, generosity and kindness.
