A Prayer and Intercessory Guide

A Believer’s Response to the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic

Prepared by Pastor Veda A. McCoy


Father, in the Matchless and Powerful Name of Jesus, the Christ, we come to you today.

Our hearts are filled with adoration and praise.  Our minds recall your excellent greatness and our lips speak forth your praise, for you and you alone are worthy to be praised.

As thou has been our dwelling place, a shelter in the time of storm.  We have no other place to turn to but you.  So, our hope and our help lie in you.  You are Jehovah-Shammah – the One who promised to never leave or forsake us.  You are always there and you are here right now, in the midst of everything. 

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

So Father, we humbly and sincerely repent of all our sins.  Corporate sins.  Individual sins.  National sins.  Sins of commission and omission.  Forgive us now.  Wash us in the precious blood of the Lamb, your son, Jesus the Christ.  You are Jehovah-M’Kaddesh, the Lord our Sanctifier.  Sanctify us, once again.  Purge us with hyssop.  Cleanse us and the earth around us.  We place a blood covering over our ear-gate, eye-gate, mouth, spirit and soul.   Nothing corrupt goes in and nothing corrupt comes out.  Help us, God, to be a Holy People, for you are a Holy God. 

We pray now for our world.  We ask for your hand of mercy to stretch forth and heal the land.  From the four corners of the earth, we receive the healing winds of Jehovah Rapha.  Blow HEALING WINDS BLOW!  Heal HEALER HEAL!  We decree and declare that we are covered by the precious blood and name of Jesus.  He alone was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities and by his stripes – We are the healed of God.  Healing is the children’s bread, and we decree and declare that we shall eat from your tree of healing and deliverance each day.  We receive this now healing now, for our entire bodies, minds and souls, in Jesus name. 

Release miracles, signs and wonders.  Raise the sick from their sick beds and protect the uninfected from infection of this disease, oh Lord we pray.  We stand in the gap and decree that the spread of Coronavirus be halted even now, in Jesus name. 

We pray for first responders.  Those who must go to work and those who choose to go and put themselves at risk to serve humanity.  Thank you for gifting them to us and for their dedication, courage and strength.  Bless them as they act as your ambassadors and agents of healing and compassion.  We intercede for them now and ask that you cover them by your mighty hand of protection.   

We pray for our families near and abroad, and our children who are now out of school.  Keep them covered from all hurt, harm, danger, sickness and disease.  We place the blood over the doorposts of our homes and the lives of everyone connected to us. 

Jehovah Nissi – the banner of love over our lives.  COVER!  COVER!  COVER!  COVER!  COVER!  COVER!  COVER!

We thank you now, kind God, for your supernatural provision during this time.  You are the El-Shaddai God.  The God Almighty of blessings.  The Breasty One who is all sufficient and knows no lack.  You are Jehobah-Jireh, our Provider.  Bless YOUR HOLY & RIGHTEOUS NAME!  Thank you for taking care of us.  Thank you for keeping a roof over our heads and food in our mouths.  As your prophet promised the widow woman in 1 Kings 17:14, For this is what the Lord God of Israel has said: ‘The jar of flour will not be empty and the jug of oil will not run out.”  We will always have enough.  Our jars will never run out and the oil will continue to flow. 

We pray for our government officials – national, international, federal, state, local and community leaders everywhere.  Give them wisdom and divine strategies.  Place wise counselors around them.  Give them ears of discernment and eyes of understanding, so that they can make righteous and just decisions. 

Your word tells us in 1 Chronicles 12:32 that the sons of Issachar understood the times and knew what Israel ought to do.  We lift our men and women of God to you now and ask that you would give them the anointing of Issachar.  Presiding prelates.  Executive Councils.  Bishops. Overseers. Pastors, Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists and Teachers all across this nation and world be covered in your wisdom and understanding now in Jesus name.  We are #KingdomStrong and we will not come down.   

Remember Overseer Marvin E. McCoy, Pastor Veda A. McCoy and the entire Judah Christian Center family.  Let your sheep continue to follow the voice of their shepherd, during this time of many voices.  May we cleave to the sound that emanates from the one assigned by you to watch for the care of our souls and our lives.  Keep us united and keep us STRONG!   We are #JudahStrong!  Our enemies are under our feet, and our foot is on their neck.  You are our strong tower and we are safe.  We have no reason to fear and no justification to doubt you.  We stand firmly on your promises of protection, provision and preservation today. 

As You, God, are our Help – All is Well!  May your peace cover the entire world and your Name be praised to the ends of the earth.

In Jesus Name,
