WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT

March 22, 2020
Covid Spiritual Warfare Prayer, 20 Ways to Pray


1. For the sick and infected: God, heal and help. Sustain bodies and spirits. Contain the spread of infection.
2. For our vulnerable populations: God, protect our elderly and those suffering from chronic disease. Provide for the
    poor, especially the uninsured.
3. For the young and the strong: God, give them the necessary caution to keep them from unwittingly spreading this
    disease. Inspire them to help.
4. For our local, state, and federal governments: God, help our elected officials as they allocate the necessary
    resources for combating this pandemic. Help them to provide more tests.
5. For our scientific community, leading the charge to understand the disease and communicate its gravity: God, give
    them knowledge, wisdom, and a persuasive voice.
6. For the media, committed to providing up-to-date information: God, help them to communicate with appropriate
    seriousness without causing panic.
7. For consumers of media, looking to be well-informed: God, help us find the most helpful local information to equip
    us to be good neighbors. Keep us from anxiety and panic, and enable us to implement the recommended
    strategies, even at a cost to ourselves.
8. For those with mental health challenges who feel isolated, anxious, and helpless: God, provide them every
    necessary support.
9. For the homeless, unable to practice the protocols of social distancing in the shelter system: Protect them from
    disease, and provide isolation shelters in every city.
10. For international travelers stuck in foreign countries: God, help them return home safely and quickly.
11. For Christian missionaries throughout the world, especially in areas with high rates of infection: God, provide them
     with words of hope, and equip them to love and serve those around them.
12. For workers in a variety of industries facing layoffs and financial hardship: God, keep them from panic, and inspire
     your church to generously support them.
13. For families with young children at home for the foreseeable future: God, help mothers and fathers to partner
     together creatively for the care and flourishing of their children. For single mothers and fathers, grow their networks
     of support.
14. For parents who cannot stay home from work but must find care for their children: God, present them with creative
     solutions.
15. For those in need of regular therapies and treatments that must now be postponed: God, help them to stay patient
     and positive.

16. For business leaders making difficult decisions that affect the lives of their employees: God, give these women and
     men wisdom, and help them to lead self-sacrificially.
17. For pastors and church leaders faced with the challenges of social distancing: God, help them to creatively
     imagine how to pastor their congregants and love their cities well.
18. For college and university students, whose courses of study are changing, whose placements are cancelled,
     whose graduation is uncertain: God, show them that while life is uncertain, their trust is in you.
19. For Christians in every neighborhood, community, and city: May your Holy Spirit inspire us to pray, to give, to love,
     to serve, and to proclaim the gospel, that the name of Jesus Christ might be glorified around the world.
20. For frontline health care workers, we thank you for their vocational call to serve us. We also pray:

                            God, keep them safe and healthy. Keep their families safe and healthy.

                            God, help them to be knowledgeable about the diagnosis and treatment of this disease, as well as the
                changing protocols.

                            God, help them to stay clear-minded in the midst of the surrounding panic.

                            God, deliver them from anxiety for their own loved ones (aging parents, children, spouses, roommates).

                            God, give them compassion for every patient in their care.

                            God, provide for them financially, especially if they fall ill and are unable to work.

                            God, help Christians in health care to exhibit extraordinary peace, so that that many would ask about
                the reason for their hope. Give them opportunities to proclaim the gospel.
