A prayer for deliverance from the Corona Virus by Pete Greig & 24-7 Prayer

 LORD we ask You to protect us from the spread of the coronavirus. You are powerful and merciful and so we pray-

 ”Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in You I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of Your wings until the disaster has passed.” (Ps 57:1)

JEHOVAH SHALOM, Lord of Peace, we remember those living in coronavirus hotspots. May they know Your Presence in their isolation, Your peace in their turmoil and Your patience in their waiting. Prince of Peace, You are powerful and merciful; let this be their prayer -

“May Your mercy come quickly to meet us, for we are in desperate need. Help us, God our Saviour, for the glory of Your Name.” (Ps 79:8)

GOD OF ALL COMFORT AND COUNSEL, we pray particularly for those who are grieving because of this virus, reeling from the sudden loss of loved-ones. May they somehow know Your fellowship in their suffering, Your comfort in their loss, and Your hope in their despair.

We name before You those who are vulnerable and scared- the frail, the sick and the elderly.... We also remember those doctors, pastors and family-members who are caring for all such people right now. God of all Comfort, You are powerful and merciful; may this be our prayer-

“He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and He will deliver us again. On Him we have set our hope that He will continue to deliver us.” (2 Cor 1:10)

JEHOVAH RAPHA, God who heals, we pray for all medical professionals dealing daily with the intense added pressures of this crisis. Grant them resilience in weariness, discernment in diagnosis, and compassion upon compassion as they care.

We thank You for the army of researchers cooperating towards a cure - give them clarity, serendipity and unexpected breakthroughs we pray. Rise Sun of Righteousness, above this present darkness with healing in your rays. You are powerful and merciful; may this be our prayer -

“Sovereign Lord, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for You.” (Jer 32:17)

GOD OF WISDOM, we pray for the World Health Organisation, national governments, heads of schools, hospitals and other institutions. Since You’ve positioned these people in public service for this hour, we ask You to grant them wisdom beyond their own wisdom to contain this virus and fight this fear-

 “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear.” (Ps 46:1-2)

 “Surely He will save You from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover You with His feathers, and under His wings You will find refuge; His faithfulness will be Your shield and rampart. (Ps 91:3-4)

“You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.” (Ps 91:5-7)

“Answer me when I call to You, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer.” (Psalm 4:1)

May El Shaddai, the Lord God Almighty who loves you protect you. May Jesus Christ, His Son who died for you save you. And may the Holy Spirit who broods over the chaos and fills your life with peace, intercede for you and in you for others at this time.

“The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” (2 Tim 4:18)

Tweeting this...

2 Sam 24:16 DRB

...when the angel of the Lord had stretched out his hand over Jerusalem to destroy it, the Lord had pity on the affliction, and said to the angel that slew the people: It is enough: now hold thy hand. 

2 Sam 24:25 GNT

...he built an altar to the LORD and offered burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. The LORD answered his prayer, and the epidemic in Israel was stopped.

Lord God, please stop the epidemic/pandemic. Hear our prayers. Please say the words: 'it is enough: now hold thy hand'. Have pity on us, sinners, because You are the God of Grace and Mercy. Let Your greatness and power be seen and known all over the world. In the mighty Name of Jesus Christ we pray, amen.

A missionary sent me this as encouragement re lockdown.

L. O. C. K. D. O. W. N. is a time to:

L - isten to God's voice and reflect.

O - bey His word and teachings.

C - all on Jesus' Name and be calm.

K - now what God's purpose is in this.

D - well in His presence.  Don't panic.

O - ffer a prayer for everyone's safety.

W - ait and be patient.  This, too, shall pass.

N - urture our relationship with Him.


Using #Jesus' format in Matthew 7:7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you."

  1. Ask ~ a Question
    1. Why are you prompting me to talk with you?
  2. Seek ~ God's Direction
    1. What is your will./purpose/plan?
  3. Knock ~ with Expectation
    1. Give me faith to walk the path you open for me...
I've been using a new set of hashtags on Twitter and in messages:
#StayHome #WashHands #ShareJoy #PrayOften
​ simple attempt to remind myself (and others) of vital "best practices" during our virus-crisis.
#StayHome ​- ironic how our war against the coronavirus has forced us into something we all say we have too little of (unhurried, time at home). "Lord, how can we redeem this time for our spiritual growth?"
#WashHands ​- reminds me that this disease ​can be anywhere and need to be cleansed from my body. "Jesus, just as I need to keep clean on the outside, reveal to me what needs cleansing on the inside (unforgiveness, longer anger, self-centered pride).
#ShareJoy ​- even while sheltering-in-place, I have been encouraged by family and friends by a social media post, a card or note in our snail-mailbox, a welcomed phone call...even a surprise delivery of beautiful flowers. Opportunities to bless others in a time of reflection with a truth from Scripture.
#PrayOften​ - ​an exhortation to those who never pray and a reminder to those who do ... "Pray without ceasing" (1Thessalonians 5:17) is not a command to do nothing but pray, 24/7. It is meant to motivate us to never give up on prayer, to make your life a prayer (thinking, being, doing). Pray often, whenever you thin of a person, place, or problem that needs God's presence, protection and provision.
