Pray for athletes, coaches, and those unable to play team sports during this time.

Heavenly Father, we want to thank you for the ability to exercise our bodies, build strength and train our bodies to do incredible things. We pray now for all those who have found community, friendships and a place to use the talents you’ve given them through sports, recreation and teams. We pray for the loss so many feel from being unable to participate and be together during this time. So many have found the sports fields and places of recreation as a place to further your mission and to demonstrate godly living to a watching world. We pray now for those missed opportunities to gather together. We pray for all those who are grieving the loss of attending games, matches, recitals and other activities. We pray for those who have missed the opportunities to finish a season, play in finals, try out for a new team, coach and train others, and especially for high school and college seniors. We pray your blessing over them now, as they await the time they can gather together again. Thank you God, that we find our true source of strength in you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. - Isaiah 40:31 (ESV)

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)

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

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)
