Today - National Day of Prayer

Blogger Friends, President Trump has called today a day of prayer for our nation for the coronavirus.  Hal & Cheryl Sacks of BridgeBuilders sent me these prayer points this morning and I thought they were perfect if you are looking for a place to jump into prayer.  Join me in praying for our nation and not responding out of fear or panic but a peaceful resolution that God is working.

President Donald Trump has declared Sunday, March 15, as a National Day of Prayer due to the impact of COVID19 on the United States of America and globally. Shortly after declaring a state of emergency on Friday, President Trump proclaimed:  
"It is my great honor to declare Sunday, March 15th, as a National Day of Prayer. We are a Country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these..." Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 13, 2020.

Let's Pray:
  • Lord, we humble ourselves before YOU and ask forgiveness for our sins and the sins of our nation. Have mercy upon us and heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14).  We also ask YOU to sovereignly heal the sick and stop the coronavirus plague (Numbers 16:46).
  • We thank You, Lord, that President Trump has called for a National Day of Prayer. Give our President, Vice President, and other governmental and health officials wisdom and strategy in how to contain the virus and navigate the ensuing economic storm.
  • Just as Jesus spoke to the turbulent weather, we speak to the atmosphere of fear, panic, and chaos over this nation and say: “Peace be still!” (Mark 4:39).
  • In Jesus’ name, we say to the enemy who has come to steal, kill, and destroy this nation, “enough is enough, cease and desist!” We thank You, Jesus, that You are here in the midst of us, and that You have come to give life and life more abundantly (John 10:10).
  • We pray that schools, businesses, churches, and other institutions and agencies whose services have been disrupted by the coronavirus will be able to keep their doors open and that the economy will stabilize.
  • Lord, we pray that YOU will take what Satan meant for evil and turn it for good. Awaken this nation, both those who know YOU and those who do not. We pray for revival in the Church and a great spiritual awakening across our land with multitudes coming to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. AMEN!
