Prayer Topic #11:
A Prayer Regarding the Coronavirus
Reflections of the Heart:
The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in us. And just as God, who raised Christ
Jesus from the dead, He will give life to our mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within us. Romans 8:11
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. We rebuke the spirit of fear and anxiety as the coronavirus spreads throughout this country and command peace to be still! It is Your will that all go well with us and that we are in good health, as it goes well with our souls. We expect this Word to operate in all our lives. We decree that our immune systems are healthy and strong. We expect Your Word to operate in all our lives. 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 are sick.
If you know someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, list their names and pray for them daily while they recover:
Holy Spirit, please help doctors and scientists to identify effective vaccines and medications for the Coronavirus. Protect those health care workers who are caring for patients and keep them safe. 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. Remind our citizens to wear their masks, wash their hands frequently and thoroughly, using alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available; avoid touching their eyes, noses or mouths with unwashed hands, as well as staying home when they are sick. Touch the hearts of people to eat properly, get the proper amount of rest, exercise regularly, and drink plenty of water. Please protect our children and the 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. Remind our citizens, especially our parents, restaurant/business owners, healthcare personnel, and daycare center workers how they can reduce the transfer of germs by wearing a mask and social distancing.
Beloved Father, forgive us for all acts of sinfulness, especially for not taking better care of our bodies at times. Forgive us for poor eating habits and lack of exercise which have resulted in compromised or diminished immune systems. Forgive those who are using the Coronavirus as an excuse to discriminate against people from other countries, specifically China. Forgive the US media for spreading fear. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind all persons of those they need to forgive and help them forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation 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.
