Prayers for the world, frankly. I'm praying for all of your intentions.

Please don't hesitate to post needs, gentleman. This is one of the best ways we can help each other and, in such a time of general helplessness, it's good to have these things to focus on as well.

Prayers for all who are struggling.

I have a strong feeling that I already had it back in February before it was confirmed here, no way to know for sure, but the symptoms are very similar to what I experienced, but I’m long over it now thank goodness.

I’m a teacher, so we are fortunate that I still get paid my salary at least for now. If this becomes an ongoing thing it may change the face of education, we’ll see.

My main prayer is that this is a one time deal not an ongoing thing like the flu.

Daughter #1 works part time at the admitting desk at the local ER. She's concerned with her health and that of her family and is considering quitting. They don't need the money but she was considering going full time as a career when the youngest son starts school in a year or two. Pray for wisdom and protection.

Daughter #2 has been furloughed without pay. Her spouse has been furloughed for two weeks already, but they're at least getting paid. Pray for these newlyweds.

Daughter #3 is pregnant with her second child, due in May. She's been working from home but her husband has continued in his factory job. They're taking precautions, but we're of course concerned.

Updates for those keeping score at home:

Daughter #1 left her ER job. I'm thankful she was able to make that choice.

Daughter #3's husbands factory has closed down. He's a manager so he's been kept on for busy work. There should be very few other people around so social distancing will be easier for him and he will continue being paid. What a blessing that is.

Please keep my girls and their families in your prayers.

My 90-year-old grandmother has been diagnosed. She doesn’t have severe symptoms, but she lives in a facility where three others have died. She’s in the hospital now.

A PRAYER FOR THOSE THREATENED BY THE CORONAVIRUS, INSPIRED BY THE WORDS OF ELDER ZACHARIAS OF ESSEX

 
O God, we know that whatever You do with us, You do out of love, for you are a good God, a God of mercy and lovingkindness. You created us out of Your goodness in order to share Your life and even Your glory with us. And when we fell, You prepared a way for Your Son to come on earth, to humble Himself and to be united with our fallen nature, that we might be redeemed.
 
All of this You did out of Your goodness, which is boundless. You save us and are longsuffering towards us, waiting until we “come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim 2:4), and bring true repentance, so that we may be with You for all eternity. Likewise we know that with this same mercy and love You will receive us in the other life, and judge us with the same kindness and compassion.
 
Alas, nothing can harm us with such a God, Who allows all things out of His goodness! Help us, O God, in these perilous times, under the threat of a pandemic, to stay close to You; to trust in your goodness and providence; to continually offer up thanksgiving and prayers on behalf of all; and to keep Your word dwelling in our hearts, that it may become the language with which we speak to You. Strengthen us to continue earnestly in good deeds, fasting, love for our neighbor, and repentance, that through all of these things we might attract and actualize Your grace.
 
Grant that we may dedicate this time to prepare ourselves for our meeting with You, so that our departure may not occur unexpectedly and without Christian preparation. Give us grace daily not to succumb to fear or despair, but to be courageous and patient in the face of temptations and hardships. Enable us to see Your goodness in all that is happening now.
 
Nevertheless, we do pray that You would surround us with your holy Angels, so that we may be protected from this virus. Guard the physicians and all medical workers, so that they may diligently treat and heal those who are afflicted with this virus. If we become infected, give us faith to know that this is allowed by You: for You desire and work our salvation “at various times and in diverse manners” (Heb 1:1). Give us faith, therefore, to acknowledge that this virus may be a means through which You bring many to Yourself, and to repentance, and to harvest many ready souls for Your eternal Kingdom. May we be like those who surrender and entrust themselves to Your Providence, knowing that “All things work together for good to them that love God” (Rom 8:28).
 
To You be the glory, praise, honor and dominion, now and forever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.
