COVID19 Call to Prayer – May 25: The Desire of Your Heart

25 May 2020

1.7 MINS

1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.
3 May He remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings.
4 May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.
5 May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests.
~ Psalm 20

What a beautiful prayer! Made even more so in the light of the New Testament sacrifice of Jesus Christ. That is the sacrifice the Lord remembers – so having given us Christ, how will He not also along with Him, graciously give us all things? May our heart’s desire be His.

“Prayer will increase in power and reality as we repudiate all pretense
and learn to be utterly honest before God as well as before men.”
~ A.W. Tozer

Petition: Please join with us in praying for:

  1. Pakistan – The number of confirmed cases is 54,601 with 1,133 having passed away of those with Covid 19. Pakistan has also begun to lift restrictions and is seeking to develop a vaccine in conjunction with a Chinese company.
  2. Victoria now has had 1,603 cases (up 52 from a week ago) with 19 deaths (up 1). Victoria, despite having the strictest lockdown has had more new cases in the past month than the rest of states put together. In Australia there have been 7,109 cases (up 4). There have been 102 deaths (up 0). 6,506 people have recovered (up 12). 33 are in hospital (5 in ICU). 1,224,795 people have been tested with 0.6% being positive.
  3. Pray for the countries of East Africa who are fighting a deadly locust plague which, combined with the effects of the Covid 19 economic measures could result in massive famines.
  4. Francis Collins, the director of the human genome project, and a well-known Christian, was interviewed on the BBC after receiving the Templeton Prize, where he stated that he thought a vaccine was likely by the end of the year.
  5. Pray for those who suffer from mental illness and may find this situation making it worse.

A Prayer of Repentance:
Our Father in Heaven, we confess that the desires of our hearts are often selfish and wrong.
Create in us a clean heart, O Lord; renew a right spirit within us. Amen.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving:
Lord – you are the hearer and answerer of prayer. May You grant our requests.
Please remove this virus, and above all, remove the virus of sin from our hearts.
Enable us to rejoice in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
