Prayer #65: For the Climate of Fear During the Coronavirus Crisis
Amongst the many effects that the COVID-19 virus has had on people, one of biggest is the climate of fear that has taken hold. Fear of contracting the virus; fear for loved ones; fear of losing jobs; fear of the economic future. Polls have indicated that as many as 2/3 of U.S.citizens have admitted that they have strong feelings of fear. For those who do not know God, these fears can indeed be intense and deep-rooted. What better time than now could there be for Christians to introduce, to those who are afraid, the God who in Christ holds all things in his hand?
We do indeed pray for those who are overwhelmed with a sense of fear during the COVID-19 outbreak. Pray that during this time of uncertainty, they would cry out to God and seek Him diligently for strength and security. Pray that Christians across our nation and around the world would be used by God to bring the hope of the Gospel to these who are in such great need of it.
Jer. 17:7: "Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is in the Lord."
