Pray that we would "Dare to Love" those around us who are struggling financially.

Father God, thank you for being our consistent source of peace and provision in this inconsistent time. Our hearts break, God, for those who are facing financial struggles. In response to this global pandemic, rapid changes to our economy have impacted employment and personal finances for so many. And yet, your provision continues.

Father, we ask that you help keep our eyes wide, seeking opportunities to share what we have with others. Whether it is by purchasing groceries for a neighbor, donating to area relief organizations, or by giving generously to our church, allow what you have provided us to run over for those in our community. Allow us to keep our hands open and to respond to needs with generosity. Activate the spirit within each of us to give with bolder faith. For we know, God, that your provision for others often comes through your own people. Let us give from a posture of humility, leading with empathy and compassion. Allow your grace, mercy, and love to pour from our hearts onto anyone we may encounter so that it is clear that you are the one ultimately meeting their lasting needs. For all the glory and honor are yours, Father. Amen.

Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. -Deuteronomy 15:10 (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)
