Pray for leaders responsible for making decisions about the new coronavirus.

Father, we seek Your wisdom daily.
Be with people making decisions that affect the lives and futures of our families, communities, countries, and the wider world.
We pray that they communicate clearly, truthfully, and calmly — with each other and with the public — and that their messages are received and heeded.
May truth and empathy be the touchstones of people setting policies for our protection.

He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers …

—2 Corinthians 1:10-11 (NIV)
