A Prayer for Those Who Are Ill

Father God, you are the ultimate healer. Father, we come before you to pray for those infected with this virus. We pray not only for their healing, but for them to be comforted while they heal. Lord, please eradicate every ounce of this virus from their bodies. Please heal every cell in their bodies, every infected part of their being. We pray for no lasting effects in their bodies from this illness.

Father please heal them, inside and out. And provide them with the medical care they need, with the medications they need, and with the healing not only physically, but spiritually, so that they may live life, and life abundantly ahead.

In Jesus' name,

A Prayer for Those Who Are Worried

Father, worry and fear are not of your heart. 1 John 4 reminds us that perfect love casts out all fear. And we pray your perfect love upon the hearts of all those who are burdened with the fear of this virus. Lord, we know with no doubt that you are bigger than the threat of anything, especially illnesses. Please comfort those who are living in fear, please free them from the bondage that anxiety creates within.

Remind them that you are still on the throne, and that you are still in control. Fully rain down the serenity that comes only from the Prince of Peace. Help those who are living in unease to trust you in this time, so that in times to come we may rest assured that you will be faithful to be with us until the end of the age.

We rest at the throne of the Almighty such fears, and cast them upon you, for your burden is light, and your yoke is easy. We know you cover us with your wings.

In Jesus' name,

A Prayer for Those Treating the Sick

Father, we come to pray for those who are caring for the sick. It takes a kind and selfless heart to care for those who are sick, and so Father we pray for them. We pray that you would be their source of rest, their source of replenishment when weary, and their source of hope in such overwhelming times. Lord we know in Luke 6:38 that whosoever pours out will be given back in proportion, so we pray blessings upon these caregivers. We also pray for their health, that they may not fall ill. Father, protect them with a hedge of protection against the germs of coronavirus, and help those who are giving to be protected as they nurse others back to health. Bless them, oh Lord.

In Jesus' name,
