What to Expect
A PRAYER AS WE FACE THE SPREAD OF THE COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS
Gracious Heavenly Father, Creator and Preserver of all things, we come before Your throne of grace on behalf of our families and friends, ourselves and all in our world who feel the fear of contracting a new disease that is spreading quickly. Strengthen our bodies & spirits, that we might be spared this sickness. Give wisdom and knowledge to doctors, nurses and all who provide care for the sick and suffering as well as to our world’s leaders who bear responsibility for their citizens. If it is Your will, heal those who are suffering from infection and bring the spread of this virus to a swift end. Throughout all days of trial, remind us of Your great love and the forgiveness and salvation earned for us by Your Son, Jesus Christ. In His name we pray. Amen.
