A Personal Prayer
The eyes of all look to you, dear Lord, and you open your hand and satisfy their every need. As the coronavirus continues to spread in my nation and throughout the world, I pray that you guard and keep me during this troubling time. Help me to be a good steward and to practice the hygiene that prevents this from spreading.
As people become afraid and start hoarding supplies and toiletries, I ask you to keep me from embracing such selfishness, but let me be a living example of trust in your daily providence. Help me to identify those who need the assurance of your Word and share it with them. While science shows it is best that we practice social distancing, please let me encourage and be encouraged by my brothers and sisters in Christ, so that none of us feel alone.
If it be your will that I contract this virus, please give me the encouragement of your Word that I may trust that you have a good plan even in the face sickness. I am bold to pray this because you sent your son to conquer the worst disease of all, he bore my sin and has made me your child. Through him I am clean and you have adopted me as your own dear child.
