We find ourselves in an incredible time in human history. The COVID19 Virus is causing chaos in every sphere of society, with indoor gatherings in Australia now limited to 100.
Fear is gripping the hearts and minds of people everywhere, and current predictions of organisations such as the W.H.O. are dire, should this pandemic not be stopped.
This is where the Church must stand in the gap! I have a conviction that it is the time for the Church of Jesus Christ in this nation to stand united in prayer until we see this pandemic stopped.
In the last two days, I have had wonderful conversations with Australian leaders of denominations and ministries, and I have been overwhelmed by the unprecedented support and unity that has been expressed. We all agree that we should pray – regardless of our traditions – around a simple strategy which is as follows:
LAUNCHING TODAY THURSDAY 19th MARCH at 1900h [7.00 p.m.] (daily from then on)
- Pray for our nation in response to COVID19. (The 19th and 1900h is simply an effective reminder and connection).
- Partner with intercessors all across the nation who will carry a great burden of prayer through this season.
- Support a National Day of Prayer and Fasting on Sunday 29th March.
I would appreciate you communicating this Call To Prayer initiative to your church and your networks , and launching today at 1900h (no matter what time zone you are in).
Let’s stand together on the promise of 2 Chronicles 7:14 and pray in unity the promises of Psalm 91 (an interesting reverse of 19).
Here are two poignant verses within Psalm 91 that our team have been declaring:
14 “Because He loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges My name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honour him.
