During this season of uncertainty, we are asking God's people to pray for your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, our country and our world.  Our God is our protection.  Sheltering in God's grace.

Psalm 91:1, 2

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
 will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”

Psalm 5:11

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

COVID-19 Prayer *

O Merciful God, in a time of unknowingness, fear and lack of knowledge regarding the origins of coronavirus, we come to you with open arms, welcoming people from all other places, acknowledging our human frailty and our need for your healing power.

O God, we pray for the loss of life, for those who care for the sick and ask for recovery to those in need of healing.

We pray for the cure of this disease and restoration of health.

We praise you, O God, in time of trouble and confusion; you have reminded us that you are our loving God and Savior.

Help us to spread Christian faith as we seek your truth and love each day. We pray in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.

*American Baptist Church USA
