A conglomeration of Lee County church leaders have come together to form a 24/7 virtual prayer room for the COVID-19 pandemic.
Called PrayLeeCounty.com, the site was formed “to unite the followers of Jesus across our greater Lee County community” and bring together Christians of all denominations to pray for courage and protection of those most involved in fighting to curb the virus’s spread locally.
“To those serving tirelessly on the front lines of our healthcare system, to our mayors and local government officials, our first responders and public safety officers, our teachers and education administrators, to our small business employers and employees who are disrupted and discouraged, and especially to our population most vulnerable to COVID-19, your local church says – ‘WE HAVE YOUR BACK AND ARE COVERING YOU IN PRAYER!’”
One of the website’s functions is a calendar that allows individuals, families or groups to block off one-hour increments for prayer sessions. The site encourages users to use video communication platforms like FaceTime or Zoom to pray with others. All users must create an account to log in and use the site, which requires a valid email address and password.
PrayLeeCounty.com also offers users downloadable guides with sample prayers for community members and a swift deliverance from COVID-19 for Lee County, United States and the world.
Those with feedback or questions are asked to fill out a contact form that can be found on the bottom of the webpage.
