In the wake of COVID-19, people all over the world are facing very real challenges and the urgency of this crisis has taken over every aspect of many people’s daily lives. People around the world have been confronted with economic hardship, forced to adapt to unplanned routines, and have experienced the physical, emotional, and financial impacts of this pandemic.
In the midst of challenging times, fear can make it difficult to see the path ahead. That’s why we must choose faith over fear during this time. Remember that God is our almighty healer and protector. God invites us to take refuge in Him through prayer. Proverbs 18:10 reads, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.” God’s word is alive, true, and faithful. Together, we can pray that God’s heart of love, mercy, and truth will allow us to handle present difficulties and any that may lie ahead. I’ve put together a list of six prayers we can speak together during this pandemic. Collectively, let’s raise our eyes up to heaven during this time instead of looking down in despair!
