Prayers for Mercy

I’m praying for...

Dear Father in Heaven,

Thank You for each new day. Thank You for the wonderful creations that You made for us on this Earth. I thank You for my brothers and sisters in Christ. I lift each of them to You and ask that You put Your loving, mighty arms around them. Please protect them from this virus and the spiritual forces of evil and darkness in this world. And for those of Your creation that don’t know Your Son as their Lord and Savior, I pray that You will soften their hearts so that they will turn from their wicked ways, and confess their sins before You, and seek forgiveness through Your Son Jesus, and live their lives worthy of the great and mighty God that You are.

Please be with all medical personnel and first responders. Please be with all patients of this virus and other diseases. Please be with all the families of these mentioned. Please, wrap Your loving, protective arms around them and we ask that You heal them in the name of Jesus. Please especially be with families who have lost loved ones and give them comfort and peace.

Please hear our prayers, Lord. We are a sinful people and we need Your forgiveness. Please forgive us of our sins and cleanse us from our unrighteousness. Please help us to be faithful witnesses of You to everyone we meet. You are our Defender and our Shield, our Comfort and our Strength. We ask in the name of Your Son, Jesus, that You help us now in our hour of need. Help us to keep our eyes fixed on You.

We love You, Lord. Thank You for Your plan of salvation, and thank You, Jesus, for being obedient to Your Father in Heaven, so that we may have eternal life. Help us not to forget. Thank You, Lord.

In the name of Jesus, I pray these things, Amen.
