Lord, Protect Me from the Pandemic
MAY 18, 2020 |
Almighty and awesome God, Creator of heaven and earth, thank You for Your unchanging love, your mighty acts of power and your healing virtue.
Today, O God, with millions of your children afflicted and thousands dying from the invisible but devastating plague – COVID-19 - I pray your healing power over my body, that I not be afflicted by this virus.
Thank you God for your promise that Jesus, Himself, bore my sins in his own body on the tree that I might die to sin and live to righteousness so that by his wounds, I have been healed.
By faith I claim your promise that I will prosper and be in good health even as my soul prospers.
In the midst of all my distractions, anxieties, and stress about the impact of the pandemic on my life, my health, financial and the lives of those I love, help me to stop and recall words of the Psalmist, “let all that I am praise the LORD with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the LORD.”
Move me, O God, to turn off the continual daily stream of 24/7 bad news, leadership scandals, and political power plays, long enough to remember all the good things you do for me.
And, help me God, to stop from my daily striving, quiet my heart, mind and spirt long enough, to thank you for forgiving all my sins, healing all my diseases, redeeming me from death, and crowning me with love and tender mercies.
