Prayer against COVID-19 illness

Lord God,

You are the God who Heals.
You can stop this virus whenever you want.

Lord, I don't want to interfere in your larger plan
but could you slow down the path of this virus?

Would you please in your mercy,
protect the old from getting sick?

Would you guard the children as they try to do school?
Would you give parents grace, patience, and safety from getting sick?

Lord, give the medical personnel strength to resist the illness,
patience to tend to the sick,
and time to recover?

Make this virus die out quickly.
Reduce its reach.
Let all those who know you rejoice and praise your name.
Convict Christians who are being rude, selfish, bigoted, or judgmental
to close their mouths and repent before you.
Help those who follow you to be shining examples of love and mercy in action.

May the whole world feel your love through the actions of your people.
We give you praise and honor for your healing power
and your relentless pursuit of those who don't know you.

In Jesus' name,
Amen.

These days I have been challenging out church members from the verse Lord has spoken to me from II Chronicals 7:14. I am sure God has allowed this virus to enter in almost over 178 countries. i am also praying that may God use this as an opportunity to revive His church. I love getting connected with the people of God around the globe to be encouraged strengthened and praying for one another.
