Christian ministers, preachers, and pastors are joining together all around the world with one common goal: petitioning God for healing.
As the coronavirus plagues the world, faith leaders like Christine Caine, Marcus and Joni Lamb, Craig Groeschel, Bill Winston, Rick Warren, and T.D. Jakes have uploaded videos of themselves praying for global healing and for wisdom for our international leaders as they work to combat COVID-19.
Here are some of their prayers:
In their prayers, the pastors and ministers asked God to protect the doctors, nurses, and front-line responders as they help those suffering from the coronavirus. They also asked God to provide wisdom to our national leaders and to supply for the needs of those impacted by the economic recession.
“Heavenly Father, we ask for Your provision, Your power, Your protection for those who are on the front lines fighting against COVID-19,” Groeschel prayed. “God, for the first responders, for the doctors, for the nurses, God, we pray you protect them. God, for those who are sick, we pray for the healing power in the name of Jesus to be upon them.”
“God, for our economy,” he continued, “we pray for wisdom for all of our global leaders — that our economy would recover quickly and be strong. And God, we ask for unity in our nation, that we would be unified around the name that is above every name. We speak the name of Jesus over our nation, and in this world, God, heal our land. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen.”
Caine, in her video, said it is a “privilege and honor to have been asked to join with so many other leaders and add my faith together with theirs and pray that God would intervene in our current situation.”
She went on to quote 2 Chronicles 7:14, which reads, “Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.”
“So let’s pray together, let’s believe God together,” she said.
