Good morning everyone and God bless you all! It has been a stressful couple weeks for all of us around the world. Fear and anxiety is high and palpable, and the whole world needs prayer. In times like these, we must encourage people to look to the Lord and find their peace in Him. Yesterday, President Trump declared tomorrow, Sunday, March 15, 2020, to be a National Day of Prayer. I completely agree with his righteous and beautiful call to prayer! It is in times like these that we absolutely must humble ourselves, lift our voices to God, and seek His mercy and blessing!
The Lord is in control and nothing happens outside His sovereign will. God is love and He does not want anyone to suffer or perish. He is a God of healing, wonders, and miracles, and nothing is impossible for Him!
“For nothing is impossible with God.”
Here is an email I received this morning from Franklin Graham:
Our President has declared tomorrow, Sunday, March 15, to be a National Day of Prayer. He reminded the entire country that throughout its history, the United States has looked to God for strength and protection in times like these.
I am thankful to President Trump for recognizing the power of prayer and showing faith in the Lord to intervene on our behalf. With so much uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus at home and around the world, people are afraid. Now is the time for Christians to be strong and courageous, knowing that Almighty God is with us. As His Word instructs, we are to cast our cares upon Him, because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7).
We need to pray for those who are sick and their families, for those who are living in fear and anxiousness, for the professionals who are providing medical care, for those working on treatments and a vaccine for COVID-19, and for our leaders to act with wisdom and courage as they make vital decisions that impact each of our lives. Please also lift up the President and our nation’s coronavirus task force headed by Vice President Mike Pence in prayer as they work closely and diligently with the myriad of issues related to this pandemic.
Some churches are not meeting in person for worship this Sunday to avoid possibly spreading the virus. But that doesn’t prevent us as the Body of Christ from coming before the Lord, kneeling in prayer, and pouring our hearts out to Him.
“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16).
I ask that you contact your friends and family and ask them to join in prayer tomorrow, whether gathered together in person, or in their homes.
May God bless you.
President, Samaritan’s Purse”
May we all look to the Lord for His healing, mercy, and grace! He is our rock and refuge, our fortress and strong tower, and nothing is too hard for the Lord! May we cry out to Him as one on Sunday with humble hearts in sincere reverence and awe!
“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14
“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:6-7
“The LORD is my rock, my fortress and
my God is my rock, in whom I take
He is my shield and the horn of
my salvation, my stronghold.”
The Lord is already on the move answering our prayers for Congress, as Republicans and Democrats finally came together in the House to pass H.R. 6201: The Families First Coronavirus Response Act. And no, Pelosi did not get her 1 billion dollars for abortion. It is a bipartisan act that blesses our country with the resources we need to fight the virus, praise God!
The Lord is in control and it’s all going to be okay. Remember to keep a good perspective on what is going on with the virus. If you missed my post yesterday, please read “Truth & Perspective On Coronavirus.”
Jesus Christ is Lord and He loves us all! He loves us so much that He died for us to bring us to Heaven! That is the true hope of our human souls, to be loved and to be saved, and we all need God’s love and salvation! If you are looking for peace and rest for your soul, please come to Jesus today! Today is the day of salvation and none of us know what tomorrow will bring. Come to Jesus and He will forgive all your sins and save your soul! His comfort and peace is too beautiful for words. You just have to experience it for yourself and I pray you all do!
“This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Jesus speaking in Matthew 11:28-30
Looking forward to being unified in prayer with all of you tomorrow for the National Day of Prayer! Trust in the Lord, seek His face, and be at peace. The Lord is good and His love endures forever!
Grace and peace to you all!
