In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, IFA has developed a community of caring, the COVID-19 National Prayer Wall. As intercessors, one of the best things we can do for our fellow citizens who are affected by COVID-19 is to pray for them. IFA felt led to create a National Prayer Wall for COVID-19 to facilitate shared praying and encouragement. Visit www.ifapray.org/COVID19prayers to see all of the opportunities for ministry and receive ministry.
What exactly can you find on the National Prayer Wall for COVID-19?
Pray for those who have COVID-19Submit the first name of someone who has COVID-19 and nationwide intercessors will pray for that person by name.
Post a Prayer for those with COVID-19, or our nation as a whole.
Stay up to date with the latest prayer points for COVID-19 – often created with the most recent information from the White House.
Record and listen to prayers. Not only can you post written prayers for people affected by COVID-19, but also you can record and listen to prayers about COVID-19 through our PRAY WITH OTHERS feature.
Find resources that are insightful, encouraging, and useful in relation to COVID-19. This includes prayer guides, government information, devotions, and more.
Post one of our sharable memes on your social media sites to encourage others in this time of great stress.
Find information about creative and inspired ways to care and connect with others as we are quarantined.
Why is a Prayer Wall like this important?
CONNECTION With many churches forgoing physical meetings, and we are becoming more isolated, this prayer wall can help people feel that they are still connected to others and that they are not unseen. Share this link with your church, organizations, friends and social media networks. We want to offer the hope of Christ through prayer! Again, the link to share with others is www.ifapray.org/COVID19prayers.
PRAYER POWER Tens of thousands of intercessors have already posted prayers on the IFA COVID-19 Prayer Wall. People are hungry for prayer! As we pray for one another, pray prayer points in unity, and lift up our nation together, we see the power of God working. We desire God to use us as a conduit for an increase in prayer power in our nation.
MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY As people are open to receiving prayer and seeking answers, there is potential for people to come to trust Christ as Savior. We want to create a space online for people to be welcomed, encouraged and blessed, and leave with a message of hope in Christ. Seeing prayers posted, seeing the numbers climb of people who are praying for individuals is a real encouragement to our fellow Americans who at this time can feel vulnerable, discouraged, and alone. Here are some of your fellow intercessors’ prayers:
Father God, we come before You to lift up our small businesses. Lord, just as You fed thousands with 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread, I declare that You will do the same with the smaller resources for our businesses. Lord, let their resources be overflowing so that they may bless others and give You all the glory! —Terri K

Heavenly Father I lift up all the people on the front lines in the hospitals and in the labs. I pray supernatural protection over them. Father as you said in Zephaniah, would you yourself be a wall of fire around each one of them, completely protecting them from this disease. Please use this crisis to unite our country as never before. Please give those making decisions for our country your abundant wisdom. Please bring many to your kingdom through this crisis. In Jesus’ name, amen. —Mary-Angela
