How to Pray during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) Pandemic

At Mississippi College, we want to join in the call for prayer and offer these suggestions for how to pray during these difficult days.

  1. Pray for people around the world who have contracted COVID-19 (coronavirus). Thousands of people are in need of healing from this potentially deadly virus. Pray that our Great Physician will bring healing to these individuals. (Psalm 103:3; Jeremiah 30:17)
  2. Pray for our leaders in local, state, and national government as they make crucial decisions to serve the health and safety of their constituents. (1 Timothy 2:1-4)
  3. Pray for the doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals treating individuals infected with COVID-19 (coronavirus) that God would use them to bring healing and keep them safe from contracting the virus themselves. (Jeremiah 33:6)
  4. Pray for the scientists and researchers developing treatments for COVID-19 (coronavirus) that God would give them wisdom in their task and that their efforts would be productive. (Proverbs 2:6)
  5. Pray for churches and their leaders as they seek to minister to people in their communities affected by COVID-19 (coronavirus). (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13)
  6. Pray for the administration of Mississippi College as they make decisions to ensure the well-being of our MC community. Pray for the students, faculty, and staff of Mississippi College as they adjust to a new learning environment over the next few weeks. (Colossians 1:9-12)
