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!

Trump praying

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.”

Luke 1:37

Here is an email I received this morning from Franklin Graham:

“Dear Friend,

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.

Sincerely,

Franklin Graham

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 deliverer;

my God is my rock, in whom I take

refuge.

He is my shield and the horn of

my salvation, my stronghold.”

Psalm 18:2

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!

Trump quote on coronavirus

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.”

Romans 3:22-24

“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!

  1. Thank you Ryan for this information! I am with you and Franklin Graham. We need to be strong in Him right now, seeking His face. I will blog about this today or tomorrow. May His face shine upon you, brother. In Christ, Julie

  2. What tremendous hope and leadership I feel from President Trump announcing National Day of Prayer on Sunday!!! I can hardly wait for tomorrow, so many of us sending up prayer through the day and night. So many will not be in church tomorrow and this declaration of his brings us all together not only as one church for God (which is beautiful and wonderful in itself), but as one America! President Trump realizes the power in prayer and his announcement for National Day of Prayer is so awesome. President Trump is making such strides with this virus and it is so great to see both sides come together for the good of their country. Praise God!

  3. Prayer will be a necessary part of our journey through this health crisis. My church is worshipping tomorrow only by live streaming the service. Part of the time will be spent in prayer for our city, state, nation, and the world.

    1. Amen, thank you.

      I left a comment on your post about government yesterday, but it disappeared after it originally posted in the comments section of your post. If you check your spam, it might be there. That happened to my comment the other day on David’s blog.

      Or maybe you just deleted my comment, I don’t know. I love my country and I will fight for righteousness, that includes calling Democrats out for their lies. I pray for them in love, but I will fight against evil, and there is no fellowship between light and darkness. Praise God people spoke out and Pelosi was not allowed to use H.R. 6201 to steal $1 billion for abortion.

      We have to stand up for the truth and not let it fall in the street. Sometimes the battles get heated, but we should not shrink back from the fight. We need more Christians out here speaking the truth. I pray more Christians will join me and my Patriot brothers and sisters in fighting the good fight. God bless!

      1. Ryan, I appreciate your passion and love for our country. In reading your comment, I felt it would more appropriate to be published as a post on your blog. Therefore, I respectfully deleted it without further comment. I will appreciate your understanding of my actions.

      2. Thank you, I appreciate that. It has been very encouraging sharing the Gospel within the context of important societal debates on Twitter and here on WP. This is a crucial election year and it is not politics as usual. My posts, of course, will be mixed with politics and societal issues more than usual this year.

        We are fighting for the very soul of our nation and I pray more believers join the fight and not stay sitting on the sidelines. I am thankful to be alive at this time in history and it is a great honor to fight for righteousness for my country and my children in my time. I intend to do everything I can to fight for what is right and never back down, ever, even to my death.

        People need to hear us speaking truth over all issues in society and we must follow Jesus into the political arena where He speaks truth to power boldly. May we always take the Gospel to the ends of the world. God bless!

  4. It’s shameful that the UK has tried to ban Franklin Graham’s visit and all our prime minister could do was to say that many people would lose loved ones before their time. God have mercy on us all!

    1. Thank you, Robert! Yes, we are praying for Franklin Graham and his ministry team for their UK trip. Sad the LGBTQ shut the venues down. They called Graham a “hate preacher.”

      I have written extensively about the weaponization of the LGBTQ agenda and it is unfortunate to see it happening in the UK too. We have been battling it for quite some time. It is sad that such a small minority of the population can inflict such damage and threaten such intimidation that they shut down whole events, and even bring legal action against people.

      I did read a good article the other day on Franklin Graham’s Twitter about people in the UK that are helping him and that people in the UK are hungry for God. I pray the Lord spreads revival in the UK and blesses Graham to help with that. God bless, brother!
