Prayers for all those on the frontline:
excerpts from Crosswalk
We come humbly before You, to pray for those who are caring for the sick, Doctors, nurses, researchers and all medical professionals who seek to heal and help those affected and who put themselves at risk in the process. It takes a kind and selfless heart to care for those who are sick, and so Father we pray for them.
Father we pray for Grocery Store Workers, Truckers, Gas station attendants, Factory workers, that go to work each day so we can buy food, gas, and make & replenish food, goods & merchandise. Give them encouragement, strength & the right words when dealing with disgruntled customers...
We pray that You would be their source of rest, their source of replenishment when weary, and their source of hope in such overwhelming times. Lord we know in Luke 6:38 that whosoever pours out shall be given back in proportion, so we pray blessings upon these medical teams, caregivers, and the essential workers. We also pray for their health that they may not fall ill. Father protect them with a hedge of protection against the germs of coronavirus and help those who are giving to be protected as they nurse others back to health. Bless them, oh Lord.
Jesus, we pray for the couples who are expecting a child in the next weeks & months, quiet their hearts, calm their fears, & give them perfect deliveries. Remind them to cling to the tried and true words of Romans 8 that “for those who love God all things
work together for good” or
Psalm 55:20 "to cast my cares on the Lord,"
May they know Your protection and feel Your peace & love surrounding them.
Prayers for our Loved ones, whether on the healthcare frontlines, in nursing homes isolated from family & friends, struggling with emotions, or financial uncertainty, expecting new babies and all the doubts this storm brings to us ..
Pray for President Trump, VP MIke Pence, and all his cabinet, and his advising doctors and all our country's elected leaders.. Grant them wisdom, to navigate these churning waters... to bring us safely to the other side..
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.—John 14:27 (NIV)
