In times of great challenge and uncertainty, people will ask, “What can we do to help?” As Christians, we know the value of service, giving, and helping others. We also know the power of prayer. Besides staying home and washing our hands, prayer is the one thing all of us can do to help. Here are a few things to consider as you start to pray your way through COVID-19.
- Look for prayer partners in your social network to join you. Given limitations and social distance guidelines, you should do this using phone calls, text messages, and online conference/video call technology. Find out how you can stay connected to people you know and share in prayer time with them.
- Join the Church Doctor Ministry Prayer Team. Fill out this form to submit prayer requests or to offer to join the special COVID-19 Prayer Team. The prayer team will meet by conference call every Monday, and the team will receive and email special prayer requests. Just fill out the form, submit your requests, or offer to join the team.
- Pray through the daily prayers listed here:
Monday: Pray through Psalm 91. Focus on this: “I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’” Pray for our world and all of those impacted by this.
Tuesday: Pray through Romans 8:28. Focus on this: “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Pray for our world to see God at work in this crisis.
Wednesday: Pray through 1 Peter 5:7. Focus on this: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” Pray for all health care workers and those authorities leading and managing through this time.
Thursday: Pray through Matthew 6:34. Focus on this: “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Pray for God’s provision for all people impacted financially during this time.
Friday/Saturday/Sunday: Pray through John 14:27. Focus on God’s peace: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” Pray for all Christian ministries as they continue to find new ways to worship and share the Gospel in different ways.
Stay safe, stay home, wash your hands, AND PRAY!
