Coronavirus Prayer

A Prayer for Our World during COVID-19

The Following prayer is provided by Rabbi Isaac to bring peace to all who would desire an outline for how to pray in these uncertain times. The quote from Psalm 91 below has been modified to be spoken in the first person to claim G-d’s promises for yourself. We hope this blesses you and your family as you pray this with us:

Avinu, Malkeinu, (Our Father, Our King) You are the Holy One of Israel and You alone are worthy of honor, glory and praise! We thank you for your goodness for we know that with You, we can overcome every storm and pestilence including COVID-19.  You have prophesied and promised through your servant David,

“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
We will say of YHVH, “You are my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely You will save us from the hunter’s snare and from any deadly pestilence. You will cover us with Your feathers, and under Your wings we will find refuge; and Your faithfulness will be our shield and rampart. 
We will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pandemic that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at our side, and ten thousand at our right hand, but it will not affect us… We will only observe with our eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

Abba Father, right now we thank you for this wake-up call and are asking you to:

  • Heal those who are sick and protect those who are not.
  • Give our leaders extra wisdom as they navigate this time of pandemic and economic uncertainty, and confound the wicked and their nefarious plans against your people.
  • Strengthen your people and reveal to us how we can partner together to reach the needs of those around us.
  • Perfect us in love and take away all fear. Fill us with your hope, joy and peace as we continue to trust in you.
  • Use this pestilence to pave the way for repentance and spiritual renewal. We want your glory, power and healing to be on display.

In Your Holy Name we Pray, Amen

  1. Thank you so much Rabbi for this beautiful prayer for us all and reminder that we need to stay in the shelter of His Wings. This is the place of true peace and safety.

    • Very fitting Scriptures Sister… Thank you!

      Zech. 7:9-14 says, “This is what the Lord Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.’ “But they refused to pay attention; stubbornly they turned their backs and covered their ears. They made their hearts as hard as flint and would not listen to the law or to the words that the Lord Almighty had sent by his Spirit through the earlier prophets. So the Lord Almighty was very angry. “‘When I called, they did not listen; so when they called, I would not listen,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations, where they were strangers. The land they left behind them was so desolate that no one traveled through it. This is how they made the pleasant land desolate.’”

      Isaiah 26:20 says, “See, the Lord is coming out of his dwelling
      to punish the people of the earth for their sins.”

      • I enjoy all your teachings. You are gifted and anointed.

        Learning scripture from messianic Hebrew perspective has broadened my knowledge of God and deepened my relationship with Him. I have learned more in the last year in this way than I knew in past 30yrs.

        You are one of my favorite teachers

    • Sending blessings and love from the Assembly of Called-Out Believers to you and yours Frank and wishing you… perfect love and not fear… health and no sickness… strength to stand strong and sound the alarm… wisdom from on High, and clarity to know God’s will in all Seasons and situations in your life! “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind!”
