Many people have asked if I would provide some encouraging scriptures as we battle coronavirus or COVID-19. This isn't a conclusive list, but I believe it is a good start in encouraging one another with scriptures:
Many people have asked me, what can I pray? I always want to say that God hears our prayers and they never have to be fancy. However, at times like these sometimes we can struggle with what to say. Jesus said you have not because you ask not, so let’s make sure we are asking. We are also told to come boldly to the throne. So here we are:
Jesus, thank you for being my savior and giving your life just for me. I’m forever grateful for this gift and all gifts you give me. I declare you the God of the universe, the name above all names, and I come before you and thank you for my many blessings. I forgive all who have committed wrongs against me so my prayer is not hindered and I ask you to forgive me of my mistakes and shortcomings. I pray for all the decision makers in the world and ask you to fill them with wisdom and understanding so they may guide us for our best interest. Thank you for providing food and I ask you to continue to provide for me. Continue to provide finances for me, let your angels surround and protect me from all harm. Keep my body healthy and fill me with your strength. Help me to be wise and not fall for deceptive traps, but stand firm to glorify you. Help me to draw closer to you and I commit all my actions to glorify you in the name of Jesus. Amen.
