My heart cries for those families that have experienced loss during this pandemic of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). My friend, you may be feeling fear or anxiety when watching the news. I want to encourage you to put your trust in God (Psalm 56:3). The Word tells us “do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 NIV
I too battle with fear and worry.. all the time! I don’t want to be fearful in this current situation because I trust and know that God is in control. Instead I want to be like Paul who constantly faced issues but was bold in his prayers and petitions on behalf of God’s people. Whatever you are doing right now, can you pause for a moment and pray with me?
Almighty Father, I come before you in the powerful name of Jesus, your son. Before all creation, you are God. From everlasting to everlasting, you are God. None can fathom your wisdom and grace. Praise, glory, and honor be to you God almighty. There is a giant before us Lord, but we know that you are a giant slayer and none is greater than you. COVID-19 is causing confusion, fear and anxiety. Holy Father, we pray especially for families affected, leaders, medical teams, scientists, and all other key personnel. May your glory shine. Heal this earth. Heal this land. In Jesus’ name. Amen
