Pray for those who have been laid off, lost jobs, and awaiting unemployment benefits.

God, we pray for those who have lost or have been laid off from their jobs. God, we thank you for the ways that you have been a constant companion since the beginning of time. During this time when uncertainty and insecurity may try to overwhelm their thoughts and emotions, we pray that you would take captive those thoughts. Fill our brothers and sisters minds with memories of your faithfulness. Meet their needs each new day; may their debtors provide grace and friends rise up to support one another. Let humility prevail when offers of love and support are provided. Remind your people that their identity and worth is found in Christ – not by the titles we are given or the worldly esteem that the flesh so often leads desires.

Lord, we lift these same petitions to you for those who are waiting to receive monetary support from the state. Remove any obstacles that may hinder the timeliness of these desperately needed benefits. Supply those waiting with patience and peace.

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
-Psalm 91:1-4 (NLT)

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)
