The West Ohio Conference of The United Methodist Church supports a wide variety of mission partners, both local and global, in advancing our common mission to 'make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.' Each month, we will join together in praying for our brothers and sisters doing mission and ministry around the world.
The global pandemic that is COVID-19 has recently become a reality for many Americans. What we had seen happening in far-away places like China, Italy, and Iran, is now the same situation facing cities like New York City, New Orleans, and Chicago. As frightening as this virus is for the ‘average’ American, it threatens to cause even more harm to those who were already vulnerable in our society. The elderly, homeless, immigrants, those in developing nations…and the list goes on. As we come together to face the unknown, let us remember to keep our sisters and brothers in prayer:
This month, please pray for:
- Week 1: The elderly, especially those with serious health conditions, who are most at risk.
- Week 2: The homeless, who may be staying in shelters with no possibility for social distancing.
- Week 3: Immigrants, who may be fearful of seeking medical help when experiencing symptoms of the virus.
- Week 4: People with mental health conditions, who may not be able to access care at this time.
Never doubt that your prayers make a difference!
