Holy God, we lift up those who are sick and shut-in today. We pray that you will bless those who are in hospice care and those in nursing homes and hospitals. Bless those who are in all manner of prisons. Bless those who are confined to their residences. We ask you to abide with them wherever they are.
We pray for those with emotional burdens. We know that you can touch them and comfort them in the midst of all they are going through. We know that you can ease their physical pain and give them peace of mind. We know that you can comfort them with your holy presence. So we ask that you move in their situations with your powerful hand.
We pray that you will help them to remember that you are in control. You already know each of them by name. You are aware of every circumstance. We pray that you will meet them right where they are and cover them with your perfect love.
Your word says the effectual and fervent prayers of the righteous avail much. So, we thank you in advance for your mercy and grace. We praise you. And we give you the glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
