Pray for ALL OF US to listen to our leaders and heed their admonition for Social Distancing by staying at home

The following is from our Missionaries serving in Italy, one of the hardest hit countries with the most people lost,

“Please understand that your temporary sacrifice of American liberty is a gift of life to the elderly, the weak, and the sick. For those of you who have the attitude of, ‘nobody can tell me what to do, especially the government,’ - this attitude is lethal. Please be responsible and love others. This is true freedom!”


Father, your word is very clear that we are to obey those in authority over us. It is, then, the mark of a disciple as you tell us, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples”. We will be obedient not begrudgingly but out of a sense honoring your word and caring for our neighbors. Our obedience can and will save lives by staying home and, when we must go out for supplies, maintaining distance from those around us.

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.-Romans 13:1 (NIV)

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 and, for many, preventive isolation from loved ones.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.—1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)

Pray with us!

Our world, community and church is in desperate need of prayer in this crisis.

Thank you for praying for the many needs around us at this time. Prayer is important, and you are invited to join us in a live prayer experience on Zoom, weekdays at noon. A link to the live prayer experience will be posted daily on the blog.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

Pray for educators and students (including colleges and universities)

God we pray for students during this time who are away from their routines and their lives at school. We pray that they continue to have positive connections with their friends and others from school. We pray for their work at home, that you help them be productive and give them confidence that they can do their work well.

God we also pray for the teachers while they are away from their students. You know how much the teachers care and love for their students and want them to succeed. In this time of online learning, we pray that the time spent with their students online is life-giving and can be a moment where the students see that their teachers are there for them.

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11 (NIV)
