Christians Call for Global Day of Prayer to End Coronavirus by CBN News
A coalition of Christians across denominational lines are uniting to pray for an end to the coronavirus.
Cindy Jacobs of Generals International says she received word from God to call for a global day of prayer – ceasing the spread of the coronavirus. Jacobs adds The Holy Spirit spoke again to her, granting the authority, but only as a global gathering.
“After seeking wisdom and prophetic counsel from prophets across the nation and world, we believe strongly that since this is a worldwide issue, it’s going to take the whole Church to cry out together for the mercy and healing power of God to contain it.”
Plans are now underway for leaders to stand united on March 3rd and petition the Sovereign Lord for His mercy.
The passage in 2 Chronicle 7:14 reveals that if God’s people pray, seek His face, and turn from wicked ways then He will heal our lands.
“If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Leaders are asking for the nationwide gathering to be this Tuesday. It will consist of fasting and prayer in order to stop the spread of the virus and heal the people affected by it.
What should we do during this time of prayer?
1. Pray Psalm 91 over your families and nations. “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
2. Pray against fear, knowing that God has not given us a spirit of fear. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
3. Pray for wisdom for our leaders and protection for the emergency responders while protecting their people and preventing the spread of the virus.
