Prayer is always in order. Under the unction of the Holy Spirit, Apostle Paul advised his fellow Christ followers to worry about nothing, but to pray about everything. The Peace of God in your heart and mind results (Philippians 4:6-7). I came across the following timely prayer on crosswalk.com for those who are worried about the spread of the Coronavirus.
Worry and fear are not of Your heart. 1 John 4:18 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 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 age. We rest at the Throne of the Almighty such fears and cast them upon You (1 Peter 5:7), for Your burden is Light and Your Yoke is easy (Matthew 11:30), we know You cover us with Your wings (Psalm 91:4). In Jesus’ name, Amen.
May the God of Peace be with you as you trust Him to see you and your loved ones through these difficult days.
