Pray that we would "Dare to Love" by volunteering to serve others in a meaningful way.

Gracious and merciful God, thank you for this opportunity to come before You. You taught us how to serve one another as You served, not counting the cost but being available to all. Help us have eyes to see the needs around us and to respond to those needs in joy and hope.

Father, we not only pray that You would send volunteers into places that need help to cope with the effects of this pandemic, but we ask that You would prompt Christians to hear the call and take the gospel with them into these places that have been so devastated. Lead us to hear, feel deeply, and accept this challenge of sacrifice that we step up to meet the needs of people here and abroad.
We pray now for all those who have been volunteering their time, talent, and treasure in support of people in need during this pandemic. We pray for strength and sustainment for all, that with patience and understanding they may love and care for Your people.

We bind fear, anxiety, and dread, in the mighty name of Jesus, and we loose power, love, and a sound mind as we yield to You; trusting in and remembering Jesus’ sacrificial surrender of self on the cross for us all. We thank You that we are not fearful based on what others say, but that we will use wisdom and we continue on mission with You for the sake of the world.

God, we pray now for those in need. We pray for Your abundant provision in their lives; spiritually and naturally. Pour out Your grace on the hungry, show mercy for those who are living without adequate healthcare, open windows and doors of provision for those who are struggling to feed their families and pay their bills. Fill them with hope and encourage their hearts that You are with them in the valley.

Finally, Lord, we pray that You will give people generous hearts and spirits to willingly give of themselves to build up Your Kingdom here on earth. Take our feet where they need to go and give us hands ready to reach out to others. Lead us to "Dare to Love". In Jesus’ name. Amen.

If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. -1 John 3:17-18 (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)
