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.

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,...

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...

I was on the phone with my mom telling her about my day. “It sounds like you got a lot done,” she said. But I didn’t feel like her words were true. “It’s not a big deal. I didn’t get that much done. I have so much to do still,” I answered. I was completely unimpressed...
I wander around my house and there is continual proof that I can’t keep up. I can’t always keep up with the dishes. I can’t keep up with the laundry-covered guest bed (even when I promise myself I’ll do one load a day.) I can’t keep up with the kids’ bathroom that...
Oh, anxious momma, your heart feels like it can only take so much. Your thoughts seem to never stop racing. You continually count your "okays." My kids are okay. My husband is okay. My house is okay. My job is okay. My family is okay. My friends are okay. And you...
I have this memory from when my kids were little... they had spent the morning playing with play doh and coloring and reading and dragging out all of their toys and FIGHTING. There had been tons of fighting. I had my four month old on my hip as I put away the dishes...
It's 12:36 a.m., and I'm the only one awake in my house. I had to wait until everyone was asleep so I could sneak presents in from the car. I have a feeling this won't be the only night this week that I stay up well-after everyone else has gone to bed. There are just...
