Covid-19 Family Members & Friends:

God, we ask for people who need Your loving touch because of COVID-19 to feel your presence and  feel Your power of healing.  Take away the fear, anxiety, and feelings of isolation from people receiving treatment or under quarantine. Protect their families and friends and bring peace to all who love them.

Ronnie Johnston & family, (Jan French’s relatives) live in New Mexico and need prayers for Covid.

John & Jody Duffy, (members at Grace Pres) tested positive for Covid.

People of Peru, First Pres Mission Volunteers and our church in Lima, Peru.  Pray for the people in Peru as a lot of families are ill and being treated for Covid-19 virus.

Prayers for all educators and their administrators as discussions and decisions continue to be made about returning to Fall classes.

Healthcare Workers &  First Responders:

We pray for Your guidance to the doctors and nurses when deciding how to treat each patient, especially those with underlying medical conditions and that they will have wisdom and empathy when conversing with the patients’ family and loved ones.  We pray for the physical health and well-being of these healthcare workers and first responders.  Health care workers, especially those working in hospitals, that may be working 12-hour shifts, day after day.  Many of them are physically exhausted, and the virus consumes their thoughts. We pray they have endurance and strength in the days and weeks ahead and their immune systems remain strong so they will not contract the virus.  We pray for their mental fortitude and encouragement.  With no foreseeable end to the crisis, and with all indications pointing to more positive tests, it is easy to become discouraged. Pray that those on the front lines would fight discouragement and find joy amidst their work.
