Coronavirus Prayer for Australia


'Heavenly father, we commit our nation to you.

'In this terrible time of great need and suffering for so many people.

'And we do this also for the entire world, places far from this country there are people suffering even more, going through tremendous hardship, crying out, we pray you'll hear their voice.

'Pray you'll deliver them, that you'll send them peace and that you'll send them comfort and you'll send them strength in this time of great, great need.
