Today We Pray for Our Nation
Father, we have called ourselves a nation under Your authority, God. As Your children and as people called by Your name, we believe Your Word. You told Your children in 2 Coronicles 14:7 (KJV), “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” So we do that now. Across the United States of America today, we humble ourselves, pray, and seek Your face. We turn from wickedness, and we trust that You hear us.
Today we are asking You, Lord, to move on our behalf. Heal our land. You are the God who healed in Scripture, and You do not change. We ask that You would bring healing to those who are suffering from COVID-19. The blood of Jesus has paid the price for those who are sick, and we ask that You would intervene now on their behalf.
Lord, we ask for strength, wisdom, and protection for health care professionals. You see each person working in hospitals, clinics, offices and laboratories right now. Help each one become aware of Your presence as You strengthen and protect them.
We ask You to give patience to those who are in quarantine. They might feel isolated or scared or disconnected, but You haven’t and won’t leave them. Be a friend and comforter to those in quarantine even now. Give them supernatural patience.
We ask You to give wisdom to our leaders. Give wisdom to our President and the heads of our national government. Give wisdom to our governors and the heads of our state and local goverments. Show them strategies outlined in Heaven for such a time as this to bring order and peace to our nation.
We ask You to give divine strategies and supernatural insight to those searching for cures and preventative processes. You have all the answers, Lord, and Your Word says You give wisdom generously to those who ask. We seek Your counsel and ask that You’d give insight to those who can bring relief.
We ask for peace to settle on each home in the United States and across the world. Grant peace for those who are afraid. Peace for those who are unsure. Peace for those who feel unsettled mentally, spritually, or emotionally. You are the God of Peace. Be with each of us.
We ask You to help us feel compassion for our friends, family, and neighbors. Give us compassion to act out of love and not fear.
We ask for provision for our families. Your Word says are the God who provides. Thank You for providing for each family. There is not one need that is hidden from You. So, we pause to praise You for continuing to meet our needs as only You can.
We ask for You to help us prepare rather than panic. Give wisdom to each family as we do our best to follow the wisdom of those in leadership over us. Help us not to hoard. Help us to stay rooted in love. Give us peace as we make all of our preparations.
We ask for Your courage to fill us so we can do what must be done. We love You and trust You, God.
Lord, we pray for supernatural faith to rise in the hearts of Your children across the United States of America and the world. Give us faith to believe You are turning the tide and pushing back darkness on our behalf. Give us faith to continue to pray bold prayers. In faith we believe that COVID-19 will dissipate and become eradicated from the earth.
You are able. You are good. We trust You, and we ask all of these things in the name of Your Son, Jesus, who taught us to pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.”
Thank You for praying with us.
We invite you to continue to pray this prayer with us daily until COVID-19 is no more. Save this post and share it so others can join. After all, there is no distance in prayer. We might be separated in our homes, but we are united in spirit. Powerful things happen with God’s people pray. Let’s commit to praying.

365 prayers to put your momma heart to rest
There is something about a quiet house in the midnight hours that causes stress and anxious thoughts that have been ignored throughout the day to rise to the surface of a mother’s heart. We understand how lonely and overwhelming those late-night hours can be. That’s why we wrote Midnight Mom Devotional: 365 Prayers to Put Your Momma Heart to Rest.

The warm sun shone through the nursery window as I rocked my 5 day old in a plush aqua colored glider. I had rocked in that chair for weeks before my son arrived hoping he might become accustomed to the feel of it. I thought that maybe if he got used the gliding...
I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I'm tired of sorting through facts and opinions and emotions. I'm tired of weighing all the options, finally making a choice, and then second guessing myself immediately. I'm tired of the tension and the stress out there in the...
A few years ago I had a conversation with my son that highlighted an area of my heart which needed Jesus's help. We were standing in the kitchen when my son, then seven at the time, said, “I’m sorry this is so frustrating, Mom." I should have thanked him, but instead...
I was painting my bedroom, a project that was taking much longer than I anticipated, and it was getting closer to dinner and bedtime. I'd have to put off the rest of the painting until after my three kids were asleep for the night. I was just about to wrap up the...
There used to be very few “BIG” questions in my life. Sure, there were some personal things that my husband and I were trying to make some decisions about, but in our day to day life? I had to decide what we were having for dinner and if my kids were spending too much...
My kitchen is not one where you’ll find much design inspiration. There isn’t a trendy tile backsplash or gray and white quartz countertop. The appliances are likely original to the house. And I’m guessing the faucet is too. This house is a rental, and while it doesn’t...
So you’re parenting in the middle of a pandemic. Gah. None of us planned for this. Did we? It’s the worst. Being a mom on a regular Thursday was hard enough. Mom in the middle of a global crisis with civil unrest on a Thursday halfway through a year that has been...
"If God is good, why is this happening?" "If God knew, why didn't He tell us?" In the wake of the global pandemic, hard questions are rising to the surface of hearts across the world. On social media, those within our faith and those looking from the outside in are...
Me: Okay, God, here's the thing. I'm scared. I'm trying not to be, but I am. God: I know. Want to talk about it? Me: Do we need to? I mean, you already know. God: Let's talk about it anyway... We've done this before. Me: I know, I just feel like I should be bigger or...
What is Normal Anymore? All three of my kids had confirmed cases of Influenza A the week before the coronavirus (COVID-19) was diagnosed in our area. All three of them were running 103-104 fevers for nearly five days. I scrubbed my hands raw from the endless washing,...
This afternoon, I asked my three young children to sit down on the rug in our living room, and I positioned myself across from them. They were diagnosed with Influenza A last week, and the dark circles under their eyes reminded me that their bodies were still...
A CONVERSATION ON COMPARISON Me: “I’m having trouble.” God: “Tell me more...” (So I started to list all of the things I couldn’t do, making sure to name all of the people who did those things well.) And God answered, “Oh. That’s an easy one. You’re having difficulty...
