This is America's National day of Prayer. Their needs are great under the scourge of Covid 19.
A Day of Prayer is a great way to unite our voices and intercede for god's grace and mercy. We can join our voices with those of other countries, and share their pain.
Let us also pray for our country, which, under cautious and wise leadership has seen - so far- a very limited death toll from Covid. We are tiny islands, far flung from the big centres of infection, and we're( mostly) obedient to the authorities which have urged stringent measures of cleanliness and isolation to combat the virus. USA and UK, plus many other nations have not been so blessed. We know that Prayer changes things, and we can lift our concerns to God from our bubbles at this time.
I have attached here the words of Ronnie Floyd, president and CEO of the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee and former president of the National Day of Prayer.
"The National Day of Prayer is Thursday (May 7). l have a deep conviction and commitment to praying for our nation.
We must be vigilant to pray for America consistently and even daily as we face the COVID-19 global pandemic. As we prepare specifically the 2020 National Day of Prayer, please consider using this prayer guide below. It is a powerful way to pray for America (and other nations.)
Please tell your friends to pray. Share these prayer points with them, as well as with pastors and churches, and everyone working in business, education, healthcare and all areas of life. Let’s join in clear agreement, visible unity, and extraordinary prayer as we focus on praying for America on Thursday, the National Day of Prayer."
In God we Trust!
