Day 5 – Prayer with a Heavy Heart

By | Covid-19, News and Events | No Comments

Dear Heavenly Father,
We come to You with heavy hearts.
We come to You broken in spirit for our nation
In need of Your healing touch.

We trust in You, Oh Lord.
We know You never stop working on
Our behalf for we are Your beloved.
Please guard our hearts and minds in You
And surround us with Your presence.

Dear Father,
We pray the blood of Jesus over our President
For protection, health, favor, and guidance.
As it says in Psalm 52:8,
We trust in You confidently
Because You rescue us and keep us safe
For You are forever good and faithful.

We also pray for our medical teams.
Draw near to them and bless them with provision,
Peace of mind, and strength.

We pray for wisdom as we intercede
For our leaders in our states, churches, and families.
Psalm 91 says that we can dwell in the shelter of the Most High
and remain secure in the shadow of the Almighty,
Whose power no enemy can withstand.

We declare Psalm 32:7 and Psalm 18:2
You, Oh Lord, are our hiding place.
You will protect us from trouble,
And You surround us with songs and shouts of deliverance!

Oh Lord we declare that You are our rock and our fortress,
Our shield, the horn of our salvation,
Our high tower and our strength.
Worthy to be praised!

Please heal our nation and deliver us completely.
Encircle us with strength and set our feet securely.
Thank You for Your lovingkindness and for Your sovereignty.
In Jesus’ powerful name we pray, Amen.

Engaging with Family, Friends, and the Community

Our CWA leaders are finding unique and meaningful ways to help and support others during these uncertain times. We wanted to share these ideas and invite you to share yours. Add your idea(s) here.

Ways our CWA Leaders Are Reaching Out.

  1. Take your family on a prayer walk around your neighborhood and pray for each household as you pass by their home.
  2. After two weeks of closing the doors of our church (due to instruction from our governor) my home church organized a Drive-In Church Service complete with popcorn and a live sermon streamed to our car radio. Yup, we all stayed in our cars “together.” We worshipped, we prayed, we honked our horns with a loud “AMEN!” All the volunteers lined up (be sure it’s under 10 volunteers and 6 feet of social distancing) and waved goodbye to each car as they drove off. It was powerful. It felt good to love on them in that way.
  3. Form a “Love Delivered” task force at your church to deliver fresh produce, supplies, and notes of encouragement every Sunday afternoon to those who are shut in—which now includes a growing number of families who are in quarantined. Simple, practical, intentional.
  4. On a smaller scale, call in pizza from your local pizza shop to be delivered to the home of someone you know who has to work/stay at home. Kindness doesn’t have to cost a lot … and it will be remembered for years to come.
  5. Put together a “pantry” care package for someone you know who struggles financially. Spaghetti, sauce, box of crackers, some fresh fruit, yogurt and applesauce—or any items you can pull from your pantry. Thoughtfulness…the best tip ever!
