COVID-19 - Pray for the end of this pandemic. Pray for the scientists working on treatments, or vaccines. Pray for healthcare workers on the frontlines. Pray for all those afflicted, that they would be healed, but also that they would turn to the Lord in these dark hours. Pray for those under quarantine, that the extra time would give them an opportunity to consider their need for Jesus.
For Such a Time as This- Pray that this hour of pandemic becomes the Church’s finest hour. That we not shrink back in fear and self- preservation, but genuinely serve and care for those in need. Pray for wise, innovative and collaborative, outreach initiatives to be launched through uniting many churches who serve the same neighborhoods. Pray for Church leaders to model a proactive, faith-filled posture.
Peace - Intercede for the Church in Canada to walk in radical peace in this hour. May the peace and presence of God, not just keep us, but be a glorious testimony to those around us of the reality and care of our God. Contend for those struggling with anxiety — that the presence of God would overwhelm them.
The Jesus Fast Meets Lent - Tens of thousands in the Charismatic world are in the midst of the Jesus Fast, asking the Lord for a release of world-wide evangelism — while, at the same time —millions are also fasting because it is the season of Lent, (which is a fast of repentance). What a powerful combination! Pray that the Lord hears both these cries and releases repentance and evangelism globally — unto revival!
Seniors - The most vulnerable people in this season are our seniors. They are the ones who live off of investment income (which has just been dramatically reduced) and who are high risk for complications if they catch the COVID-19 virus. Pray for compassionate, Spirit-led outreach to be focused on our seniors. May thousands discover the love of God in their last years.
