National Day of Prayer


President Donald J. Trump has declared today, March 15, 2020, as a National Day of Prayer. 

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the fear and mass hysteria that is accompanying it, we lift our voices together with others across our nation and around the world as they pray, and intercede, on behalf of all that is happening. 

This morning I lift you, my dear readers, as well as your family, and all those within your sphere of influence, before the throne of grace and am praying health, healing, and peace over all. 

Dear Heavenly Father,

This morning I lift before You every subscriber and reader of this blog. In the wake of this COVID-19 pandemic, Father, I plead the Blood of Jesus over each and every one of them...over their homes, their families, and every other person that they come into contact with...their extended families, their church families, their co-workers, those that work within the stores and establishments that they frequent, and anyone else whose life they touch or that touches theirs.

Lord, I lift these dear ones before you this morning and I ask that you keep them safe. Give them peace, Father...Your peace...and help them not to panic in the face of adversity. Give them wisdom and insight as to how to deal with any troubles that they may be facing right now. Help them to press into You.

Lord God, this morning we lift up our nation before You...not only our nation, Father, but every nation around the world that is dealing with this pandemic. Father God, we ask that You stop it in it's tracks and help those that have it. We pray health and healing over them and we pray protection over all them that they have come into contact with. And, Lord, we lift up the grieving families of those who, sadly have already died from being exposed to COVID-19.

Lord, help us in these tough times. Be with us, guide us, and direct us. Turn our hearts towards You and help us to know and remember that You are all that we truly need. Give us a burning desire to seek You in all that we do and say, and help us to stay in your Word. And, Father, if there's one here today that doesn't know You, Lord, I pray that You would minister to that one right where they are. Convict them, Lord, of their need of a Saviour and help them to come to the saving knowledge of having a personal relationship with Your Son, Jesus. Help us, Father! Guide us in these trying times and help us to come out the other side of this thing closer to You, and more in touch with the reality of what matters and what doesn't, than ever before.

Father God, I lift up President Trump, Vice-President Pence, our elected officials at every level (federal, state, and local), and all others that are in authority in our nation and in nations around the globe that are dealing, not only with this situation, but others that are of great importance at this time in the history of our world. I pray Your wisdom down upon them, Lord, as they make decisions. Open their eyes, Father God! Cause them to fall on their faces and seek You in all things. Help them to truly do that which is best for the people and I pray that all that is done secret to discredit, disrupt, and interfere would be exposed to the light and be brought to naught.

Save us, O Lord! Shed Your grace and Your mercy upon us and help us to move forward in the days ahead, stronger in our faith, and closer to You than ever before!

In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen!
