Dear Lord, You are the author of life. All that exists comes from You and You are our Creator. Even before we have come to know You, You were already there sitting at Your throne. You have set up heaven and earth even with just Your words.
Your power is beyond our grasp and You deserve to be glorified for who You are. You are our King forever. You are enthroned as the Most High. We worship You, our God and King.
Thank You, Lord, for reminding us of Your greatness. You are the God who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine. You hear and listen to our prayers. You answer us according to Your will.
You are Sovereign and in control. You work according to Your plans. We are but Your creations. And we are here before You falling on our knees acknowledging that apart from You, we cannot do anything for ourselves.
These days, we are faced with serious health threats. An epidemic has been plaguing us causing fear and trouble to Your people. Lord, we know that we have lived our lives in disobedience. We do not deserve Your mercy but we are here to come and ask You for it.
We humbly come before You, Lord. We ask for forgiveness for our stubbornness. We ask for Your mercy and grace. We ask that You help us be awakened from the wrong things we have done, not only because we are afraid of the consequences but because we want to obey You.
Protect us, oh God, from all these illnesses. Help us gain healthy immune systems so that we will be able to withstand any infection. Strengthen our physical bodies but more importantly strengthen our faith in You. We pray that You cover us with Your protective hands. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
