If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

People are worried about something they cannot see. Places are shut down. People are shut in. Social distancing has become a thing. People are sick. People are dying.

Our health-care workers are working around the clock caring for our families. They are tired, but they continue to work. There is no normal. There is only unknown territory.

Now is the time for God’s people to stand up and be brave enough to kneel before the God of heaven. Our hearts bowed before the creator of heaven and earth, and in earnest prayer, pray for this nation.

Jesus, King of the earth, forgive this country for turning from you. Forgive our stubborn, self-centered lives. Forgive us for believing that we can do just fine on our own without You. We turn to you in prayer and ask that you be merciful to us, forgive us and heal our land.

Jesus, remember those who are caring for the sick. Be close to them as they hold the hands of frightened people. Jesus, restore their strength and keep them from all evil. They are the heroes of today and they need Your power at this time.

Jesus, restore America. As we see our way through this storm, protect our leaders. Protect those who are hurting. When we see the sun after the storm, may our hearts remember who brought us through. God, bless America again, for our only hope is in You.
