Lord, Hear Our Prayers

Dear Jesus and Blessed Virgin Mary, my mother, father and I live in Elmhurst, N,Y. (the epicenter of the epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic). Please protect us from the coronavirus, bless us with continued good health and protect us from people who are infected with the virus (especially those who are asymptomatic). For the past two months, we've been drowning in fear, worry, anxiety and hopelessness. We know God is bigger than this coronavirus and global epidemic so we are praying fervently for a miracle for a vaccine to be widely available this year and an end to this virus. We are surrendering our lives to our Lord, Jesus is our provider so we're also asking him to protect our jobs. Continue to bless us with safety, security and good health. Thank you in advanced for answered prayers, in Jesus' mighty name Amen. -KK

Hello, please pray for my husband, my son and I. My husband and I are only 19 and 20 and we have a 3 month old son and we’re barely able to get by. And because of the virus he’s losing his job and we barely have any money for rent or food. We have no car. I’m so scared for the future. I don’t know what to do. I just keep trying to place all my trust in God.
