Lord God, you have hidden your treasure of love deep within us. You call us to visions that we may not understand or believe is possible. May we seek this treasure boldly with all of our hearts so we can know your plans for our lives and follow them in faith. Help us to not be held back by our own fears or estimations of our abilities. Help us to step out in faith to do what you call us to do. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Eternal God, renew us with your Holy Spirit so that all our thoughts and our actions this day are centered in your will. Open our hearts, our minds, and our wills to worship you in truth and sincerity in all that we do. Help us to shine as a light in a world that is darkened by fear, distrust, and anger. Speak to us to strengthen our faith and our witness to your loving kindness, so that we may reach out to support and strengthen others, through Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
Holy God, thank you for your Holy Spirit that helps us pray as we ought. Your Spirit guides us in our prayers, our thoughts and our actions, and without you searching our hearts and giving us guidance we would get lost in our own sinful desires. As we wait for healing to come to millions of people who are suffering from Coronavirus, we place our trust in your Word that tells us that all things work together for good for those who love you. May we bring your healing presence in the midst of this pandemic to others, and may we stay tuned to your Spirit’s guidance. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
O God of truth and hope, your Son spent time in prayer each day followed by serving others, and he taught us to pray and gave us examples of serving. May we understand that our prayer time with you is to be followed with acts of love, healing, and hope to others. Grant us O Lord, a vision of all that we might be and do this day for your kingdom, and enable us to live out each moment with those great possibilities as our vision of hope. Help us put action to those visions. In Jesus Holy name we pray. Amen
Gracious and loving God, may your love for all people so fill our hearts that we discover new ways of reaching out to bring hope to others in these days of the pandemic. We pray for our world to learn to put their trust in you as they face their fears of this disease, the fears of failure in their business, fears of being beaten down financially, or fears of losing those they love to this virus. Teach us to open our hearts to those who fear, who are defeated, and to all to bring hope and salvation in Jesus name. Amen.
Heavenly Father, you have called us to be your children, and as your children you guide us by your Holy Spirit. Because of your Spirit’s guidance we will live and not die. Help us remember to listen to your Spirit’s leadership in each decision of our daily lives. Guide us through the difficulties of these days to love as your love, serve and you serve, and suffer as you suffer with the hope of life eternal that you have planted in us. May the seeds of love and hope, faith and trust that you have planted in our hearts grow to feed many others. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Loving Father, we thank you for another day added to our lives. Pour out your mercy and loving care on all who are in the isolation of their homes during this pandemic. Fill us all with your peace and the assurance of your presence. Give us understanding in how to face our problems and help us support each other through digital communication and phone calls as we wait for the healing of our nation. Strengthen our faith and love so that we can share your love with others. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
Faithful God, the coronavirus has so changed our daily patterns of living, and impacted our behaviors, and we miss and long for personal interactions with friends and loved ones. We are so grateful that you are there with us to guide us through our fears, and the unrest we have in all these changes. We pray that your healing power will bring wellness back to those who are sick and support to their families. As our guide and our hope, lead us through these dangerous times. Help us by your grace to grow in faith as we continue to walk through this valley of darkness. Calm our fears and grant us your peace and joy in your presence. In the Blessed Name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Creating God of heaven and earth, you have known over the eons that there would be setbacks along the way. In addition to being the creator of all, you have been the healer of our setbacks. Show us how to turn our setbacks into comebacks. If we have lessons to learn, reveal to us what we need to know and give us guidance and wisdom to go forward with confidence in pursuing your plan for re-creation. Help us to not be discouraged or resentful and not to dwell on the past, but to anticipate and look toward the future with hope and expectation. Direct our steps and bring to fruition your plan and purpose for our lives and our world. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
Dear Lord, thank you for your loving care and protection of our lives. Help us not to worry or be frustrated today about the mistakes we may have made yesterday, but instead to cast all the cares and concerns of our past on you. We ask you to redeem our mistakes and failures and help us receive your forgiveness. Help us to leave yesterday behind and look toward to today and tomorrow. Let your Spirit’s presence reside in our hearts, in our lives, in our homes, and in our workplaces this day. May we trust in you to fulfill your plans and purposes in our lives today and always. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
