Pray for marriages challenged by unexpected circumstances caused by COVID-19: illness, finances, children, parents, uncertainty, loss, but also opportunity.

Lord, we pray for marriage today... ALL marriages. During this time of Social Distancing and Stay at Home orders, marriages are facing multiple distractions. This “new normal” came quickly and without warning. There is not much that can be done, but find ways to address the immediate circumstances and where possible, determine some near-future opportunities.

As we pray, let us: ask, seek, and find.

We ask for each spouse to have a spirit of openness and willingness to work together to find appropriate next steps and have wisdom and clarity in using wisely the resources they have. Give marriages a spirit of togetherness... thinking ‘we’ rather than ‘me.’

We seek for each spouse an understanding of how YOU can use this experience to make us more loving and strong with an attitude of thoughtfulness and prayerfulness rather than panic.

Father, help each spouse find a purpose for staying in the struggle, allowing the community around them to provide spiritual encouragement through another person, couple, or family who can offer support during this difficult time.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6 (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)
