COVID-19 Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

I pray for world leaders – especially our own – grant them wisdom and courage as they respond to the COVID-19 global emergency.

I pray for those on the front lines. Please protect them, God. Protect their families. Grant them health and energy in the coming weeks and months.

For those who have COVID-19, I ask You to bring healing. For those in vulnerable communities who are more at risk, I plead for their protection.

Calm hearts and minds, God. Let your incredible peace flow in the face of so much fear and uncertainty.

In Jesus’ name I pray,



Pray and give thanks.

Make a list of the blessings in your life. Each day this month, spend time expressing your gratitude to God for the wonderful things He has given to you.

Thank God for the miraculous way in which He puts your generosity to work. Thank Him for using you to make a real and tangible difference for people living in poverty across the world.

Thank God for 41 faithful Christian partner organisations in the field. Pray that each day He would use them to be love in action for those who need it most.

Give thanks to God for His undeserved mercy and grace. Thank the Father for the gift of a saviour and for loving you so dearly that He gave His only Son. Thank Jesus for His incredible sacrifice.


Pray for International Programs.

Your International Programs team is making important decisions. Ask God to give them godly wisdom for the next financial year.

Your International Programs team has entered a season of new leadership. Thank God for the provision of a skilled Director in Daniel Skehan. Pray favour over his season of leadership.

Pray for the safety of your International Programs team. Ask God to give them safety in travel as they faithfully carry out this work. Ask Him to protect them and give them health.

Thank God for the expertise of your International Programs team. Thank Him for their diversity of knowledge and their never- tiring passion to end poverty. Pray that He would bless their lives.


Pray for the Matching Grant Appeal.

The Matching Grant Appeal is one of Baptist World Aid’s most important. Thank God for Tabitha, who generously shared her story with you. Pray for great impact for others like her as a result.

Pray that God would stir compassion in the hearts of those who read Tabitha’s story. Ask God to give you a fresh revelation of His great love for mums like Tabitha… and pray on their behalf.

Thank God for the incredible work that will be made possible by this appeal. Praise God for the tangible difference your generosity is helping to make.

Thank God for the blessing of Australian Government funding. Ask God to use this relationship with the Australian Government as an important witness to our nation’s leaders.
