Prayer #55: For Missionaries During the Coronavirus Outbreak
Missionaries around the world have indeed been affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. Many serve in countries where the health standards are much lower and thus, the risk for catching the virus is much higher. Restrictions are also much higher in these places, with strict curfews and limits on movement. There are shortages of food and supplies. And, the support systems back home are strained because of the effects of the virus here in the U.S. Funds are shorter. Many missionaries cannot leave for furloughs and visits home.
And yet, there are now unprecedented opportunities for the gospel in these lands. There are fear, anxiety, and panic, amidst the illnesses. So, we don't want to forget to pray for missionaries around the world while all this is happening.
Pray this day for missionaries who are serving across the globe. Especially pray for those who are in countries that have been greatly affected by the COVID-19 virus. Pray for God's protection for them, and as well, for His provision. Pray that they would receive the support funds they need to continue their ministry, and they could find the necessary food and supplies. Pray that God would make a way for those who need to return to the U.S. for urgent reasons. Above all, pray that God would use them greatly to bring the hope of the gospel to those in such great need today.
Is . 52:7: "How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, 'Your God Reigns!'"
