“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.”
In a time like this, there is a need for us all to put sentiments and all our differences aside and pray for a better world, a world free the snare of Corona virus. Our land has been badly affected by the virus, it is important that we say a prayer for healing and prevention of Coronavirus. God is so much concerned about our wellbeing; His plans is not for the entire world to wiped out by a deadly and incurable epidemic. This is clearly the work of the devil because God never does anything evil. While scientists all over the globe are working round the clock in a bid to get a cure for this disease it is important that we also at the corridor of spirituality do all we can to salvage the situation. Just before we go into prayers, for the benefit of those have little or no knowledge about the virus, it is impeccable that we write about it for you to know how deadly it is so that you will know how to pray well.
Coronavirus outbreak is the most recent and deadliest epidemic that has attacked the world, the worst the world has ever seen. It was first discovered in Wuhan, a city in the Republic of China back in December 2019. At first, when the virus started in China, the rest of the world turned blind eyes and deaf ears to it, not until it was transported into Europe, Africa, America and the rest.
Within three months, more than 100 countries have been greatly affected by the virus and more than 4000 people have been declared dead. Our fear increases in Africa when the virus flourishes abundantly in the western world. And now, sport activities all over the globe have been put to a stop due to the deadly virus. Also, many trade centers across the globe have stopped business because of the outbreak.
The coronavirus disease also known as COVID-19 is characterized by mild symptoms. People who are infected by this disease may experience the following:
- Runny nose
- Sore Throat
- Difficulty Breathing (Severe Cases)
The World Health Organization (WHO) while still struggling to find a cure to the virus gave some tips on how to prevent ourselves from contracting the virus.

After we have equipped ourselves with enough information about the virus, it is important to know that God can heal the land, he can take away the effect of COVID-19 and restore peace back to the world.
What Do We Pray For?
As we call on God in prayers, we should focus on the following areas and expect speedy answers from the Lord.
For The Spread To Stop
The virus is spreading like a wildfire in the Harmattan and if it should persist, no corner of the world would be saved. There is a need to pray that God should stop the virus from spreading further. Since the knowledge of medical practitioners has proved abortive, all measures to prevent the spread have proved abortive, is it not about time that we turn back to God in prayers? We will pray for the spread of the virus to stop, the virus should lose its power. The rate at which the virus spread is alarming, any contact with an infected person the virus will be transmitted. Little wonder, it is becoming almost uncontrollable in Europe especially in the world of Football and business empires. God is a supreme being, He has power over everything, and our prayer of healing and prevention of Coronavirus would cause God to put a stop to it.
For God To Give Our Doctors Solution
Also, we will be praying that God should give the doctors and scientists the knowledge and wisdom to come up with a cure. Up until now, there has not been a shred of concrete evidence to what could have been the cause of the virus, it just sprang up from the blue. The scripture made us understand that every good idea comes from God, we will be praying that God should give them the wisdom to come up with a cure.
For The Death Toll To Stop
The death toll has increased from one to over 4000 within three months and if care is not taken, it will increase more than that. Our prayer will also focus on stopping the death toll from increasing any further. A virus that started in one city has extended to over 100 countries, the death toll must stop, and before the virus successfully kills us all and there will be nobody to pray, won’t you advise that we start praying now that we are still alive?
For speedy recovery of all infected patients worldwide
No fewer than 144,078 people have been infected with the virus about 70,920 have recovered and the rest are still battling with the virus. While praying, we should pray for those that have been affected by the virus that God Himself should heal them. The Bible made us understand that God is a powerful healer, He can stretch forth His hands and heal millions of people in a second. Enough of people dying from the virus, we will be praying God should heal everyone that has been affected by the virus.
For divine protection for the uninfected
While saying a prayer for healing and prevention of coronavirus, we must also pray that God protects those that are not infected yet from contracting the virus. The only way we are working as reinforcement against the virus is because we have not been affected by it yet. We must pray that while God is stopping the virus from spreading further and healing those that has been affected, His hands of protection should be upon those that are not affected yet.
The scripture says for we bear the mark of Christ let no man trouble us. We must pray that the hands of God be upon each and every one of us and protect us from the virus.
