Pray for missionaries who are waiting to return home or to the field. Pray for the safety of missionaries who are unavoidably separated from their loved ones at this difficult and trying time. Pray for the health of missionaries, especially those who have existing medical conditions which make them more susceptible to the effects of COVID-19, those who are elderly, or both. Pray for the complete healing of missionaries and believers who have COVID-19. Pray for the discovery, testing and production of a good COVID-19 vaccine and treatment options.
