A Prayer Regarding the Coronavirus Outbreak
Righteous Father, we thank You for being the Lord God who heals all diseases. Thank You for Your protection and for keeping our bodies healthy. Thank You for strengthening our immune systems and helping us to ward off infections and viruses. We sing praises to You and Your Name. We will sing loud praises to You, the One who rides the clouds. Your Name is the Lord; we rejoice in Your presence. We praise You Lord, our Savior. Each day, You carry us in Your arms. Sovereign God, You save us and rescue us from death. Lord, we are like olive trees, thriving in Your house. We will always trust in Your unfailing love. We will praise You forever for what You have done for us. We will trust in Your Name in the presence of Your faithful people.
Eternal Father, we declare that the Name of Jesus is greater than any name in this earth including the Coronavirus. Jesus, You desire that we be in good health, as it goes well with our souls. It is Your will that our lives are peaceful and filled hope, not dread. We expect Your Word to operate in all our lives. We declare that our immune systems are healthy and strong. Jesus, you personally carried our sins in Your body on the cross so that we could be dead to sin and alive to righteousness, and by Your stripes, we were healed. Therefore, by faith, we stand on Your Word and we declare healing and total restoration for those who have contracted the Coronavirus (or any virus). We rebuke the spirit of fear that is creating fear and panic throughout our country and around the world. We cancel the assignments of the devil to create global disorder and unrest. We command peace be still!
Holy Spirit, please help doctors and scientists to identify effective vaccines and medications for the Coronavirus. Accelerate the research and testing process so that the vaccine can be administered. Protect those health care workers and first responders who are caring for patients and keep them safe. Protect personnel who continue to work in restaurants, groceries stores, food delivery services, hotels, airlines and any industries and organizations that require workers. Please strengthen the bodies of those whose immune systems have been compromised. Show them the necessary steps they need to take to protect themselves and their loved ones. Holy Spirit, increase Your spirit of community, love, and joy. Remind our citizens to wash their hands frequently and thoroughly, using alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available, and; to cover their coughs and sneezes with a tissue that is then put in the trash. Help them to remember not to touch their eyes, noses or mouths with unwashed hands, and to stay home when they are sick. Touch the hearts of people to eat properly, get the proper amount of rest, and drink plenty of water. Touch the hearts of people to help their neighbors and those who may not have adequate resources for food.
Please protect our children and elderly and keep them safe from all sicknesses and diseases. Holy Spirit, please reveal a cure for the Coronavirus. Show the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and all other health organizations ways to end the spread of this disease. Pour out Your wisdom, knowledge and understanding to our leaders, government officials, healthcare professionals who are responsible for addressing this crisis. Holy Spirit, help us to trust God for protection.
Beloved Father, forgive those who are using the Coronavirus as an excuse to speak against people from other countries. Forgive the U.S. media for stirring up fear, confusion and chaos. Forgive those who are trying to benefit from the fears of our citizens. Forgive us for all acts of sinfulness, including not seeking Your counsel first about this pandemic. Forgive us for poor eating habits and lack of exercise, which have resulted in compromised or diminished immune systems. Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.
Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation of fear and hoarding, but deliver us from the evil one.
Lord of Heaven’s Armies, honor and majesty are before You. Strength and beauty are in Your sanctuary. We recognize that You are glorious and strong. We give You the glory that You deserve! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
