    In 2 Chronicles 20, King Jehoshaphat is faced with a huge problem and he is not sure what will happen.  However, he is sure of one thing.   He will seek the Lord with all of Judah, and they will fix their eyes on Him.  In these days of COVID-19 we may not know what will happen, but we too can come together and seek the Lord.

    Beginning Thursday, April 16 and continuing each Thursday through May 28, I invite you to join me in prayer.  You can use the following topics below and pray by yourself where you are.  Or if you would like to be a part of praying together via Zoom (11:30AM to 12:10PM) then please register.

    Recognize Who God Is – sovereign, loving, faithful…  Develop faith in God, not fear and panic

    For people to know God during these days – “be still and know that I am God”

    • Believers to have deeper relationship
    • Non-believers to have their eyes opened the truth of God

    Containment of virus – protect vulnerable population; follow guidelines being given; resources allocated appropriately; proper tests developed; vaccine/proper treatment

    Those infected with the virus – receive proper care, healing

    Healthcare workers – compassion, energy, protection

    Those who have died – comfort for their families

    Wisdom for leaders during these day (church, government, medical, business, educational)

    Provision for those without a job; financial stress not to lead to other poor decisions; needs of homeless

    Those that are isolated – connection to others; calm their fears; to know God’s presence

    Church to show the love of Christ – meet physical needs (food, caring for children, pick up medicine); spend more time praying; move outside a building and be “present in the community”; showing generosity, compassion, love, not selfishness

    Open window to share the Gospel boldly and offer hope

    Families – grow closer together; create memories with fun activities; strong, healthy relationships to develop

    Students to remain disciplined in their studies; desire to learn something new (not to waste these days)

    People with physical ailments who have had to adjust treatments, procedures, surgeries

    People not to become bitter and distanced from God, but to see He is working; learn during these days what is truly important and continue to practice the important when this crisis is over
