A Prayer for Those Who Are Infected With COVID-19 or Facing Quarantine.

Jesus, during Your ministry on Earth You showed Your power and your caring by healing people of all ages and of all stations of life from physical, mental, and spiritual ailments. Lord, we ask you to be present now to those people who need Your loving touch right now because of this COVID-19 pandemic. May they feel Your power of healing through the care of your doctors and your nurses. Lord, please take away the fear, the anxiety, and the feelings of isolation from those people receiving treatment or those under quarantine. Give them a sense of purpose in pursuing health and protecting others from exposure to this terrible disease. Lastly Lord, please protect their families and their friends and bring peace to all who love them. This is our prayer in Jesus name…..AMEN

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. – Philippians 4:6 (NIV)
