Dear heavenly father, please watch over and guide the hands, hearts and families of all the front line staff medical personnel and emergency workers. Please also protect those in maintenance, housekeeping, food service as they do their very best to provide for all of us. Give strength to all of those fighting for their lives. Please father bring peace to all of the families grieving over the loss of loved ones to this terrible pandemic. One last thing father, please replace the fear in everyone’s hearts with knowledge and peace that we are all in your loving hands and grace. There’s not one heart that’s not been altered by this crisis, as there’s also not one heart that is not loved by you…… this I pray in your name AMEN!

Heavenly Father we admit that we need your help. Everyone is doing their best to end the progression and tragic results of the Covid virus, but we confess that we need your intervention and blessing on every hand that is on the frontline of fighting this pandemic. You promised that if we need wisdom we should ask, we are asking now for wisdom for our leaders as they continue to lead us in the battle. You promised comfort in times of distress and confusion, we ask now that we would all be blessed with your comfort. Thank you for opening our eyes to see the answers to our questions, the strength to go one more day and the compassion to extend Jesus healing ministry. Amen

peace and God’s protection for all of us, for wisdom for those providing care.

Lord Jesus, we thank you that in the midst of this storm you walk beside us. You’ve promised to never leave or forsake us and we need you now more than ever. Please be with every person who is infected- those quarantined at home, those hospitalized and especially those in the ICUs. Be with their families- bring hope and encouragement. Help us as healthcare workers to shine your light, your love, your kindness. You’re bigger than a pandemic and we trust you to guide us through as we put our faith in you. Thank for your saving grace each and every day. Amen.

May God bless you all for answering to His call.

Dear Lord,
I come to you on this Good Friday, lifting up my fellow co-workers….tired, worn, feeling beaten, missing their families and their loved ones. Let them know You love them, let them feel Your loving arms around them. I don’t know what they are going through, what they are feeling but You do and you are the one who can calm their anxieties, give them encouragement when needed, but mostly give them assurance that YOU are in control still. There will be a calm soon to this storm. For the patients – Lord, heal their bodies, heal their hearts – if they do not know who You are – please open their hearts to receive You – for we do not know what tomorrow may bring – only YOU do. Please give us all direction and guidance in the way you would have us to go in the days that are coming ahead. Thank you for your many blessings you have given us. Thank you for the sun shining outside. Thank you for the good works of those around us. In your name I pray – Amen.

Ventilator Patients:

“Do not be afraid…., for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD.

The LORD is our strength and our salvation, whom shall I fear?

The LORD is a strong tower, we run to HIM and we are safe.

Stay strong and be at peace. The battle belongs to the LORD! Be at peace.

Be with us oh LORD, in our hour of need.

In JESUS NAME.

Amen.

As an Intake Specialist in the Springfield Mercy ED we see a lot of homeless, displaced, and mentally ill people. By God’s intervention and grace, I’m praying they will find homes, find family and support, and be healed of their illnesses.

Dear Lord,

Please be with those who are spending time away from their families this Easter weekend to care for the seriously ill and dying. Give them strength to make difficult decisions that will need to be made in the days to come, and keep them healthy. Grant comfort to the those who are unable to be with their seriously ill loved ones or who are mourning the passing of family or closed friends. Allow all people to trust in you, so you may see us through this time to more peaceful days ahead. Amen.

Prayer requests from our team:
For the loss of our church elder and his wife who is recovering alone. She didn’t get to say goodbye. Pray for them and all the people they have touched. Give her the strength to survive and the comfort of knowing her husband is with you.
We pray for 2 family members who are COVID positive. Please help to heal them.
For my sister who lives in NY, continue to watch over them and protect them
Pray for healthcare workers…for their health and mental state with all they have to deal with everyday. It’s taking a toll on everyone. Wrap them in your arms and protect them.
For my wife who works in healthcare who may be pulled to work directly with COVID patients and concerns of not bringing it home to her family and small children. Please reward her for her bravery and protect her from any harm.
Pray for truck drivers, store workers, and first responders who are putting their lives at risk for doing their jobs. Please keep them safe and free from harm.

I am praying some favorite scripture over the doctors, nurses (especially Lacey), staff, patients, and family members:

Philippians 4:6-8 New International Version (NIV)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

All of those who’ve fallen ill in need of care, their families who cannot be with them physically, and all of those who’ve dedicated their lives in the service of others. May God bring strength, courage, grace and healing to all who need it most in this unprecedented time.
