Prayer for Coronavirus and the fear that goes with it

Dear Lord,


You are not worried.
You are not uninterested.
You still wrap your hands around your children and draw us
close,
even when events seem to say otherwise.

Give us peace, comfort, and healing
during this time of physical and emotional unrest.

Heal those affected by the virus.
Multiply the time, effort, and supplies of those in the healthcare industry.
I pray that people will safeguard themselves,
respect others,
and be patient with all the turbulence and unrest caused by
a pandemic.

I pray for all who worry and suffer to search for you
while you can be found.

Lord, may we be found by you.
You are good,
you are merciful,
you are gracious,
you are forgiving,
and you are healing.

Heal our wounds--
the ones inside our hearts,
where we stray from you
and live for ourselves,
by ourselves.

Most of all, we need healing from fear.
I pray for your love to consume us.
Love drives fear away
because there is no fear in love.

Whatever you do with viruses, work, and finances, 
we love and trust you.
In Jesus' name,
Amen.


"This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us." (1 John 4:17-19)
