As the world is turned upside down by coronavirus–how do we pray amidst a pandemic?
R.C. Sproul has said,
If there is one single molecule in this universe running around loose, totally free of God’s sovereignty, then we have no guarantee that a single promise of God will ever be fulfilled.
We trust that coronavirus is on his leash, and will be corralled for his purposes.
How can we pray for his will around the globe?
Go. Serve. Love has compiled this handy infographic for you and your churches as we seek his hand, healing, and help. Feel free to print it, share it, and pray with us.
Replete in our reaction to coronavirus is our concern for the most vulnerable of our communities, the response of the Church, and the unshakeable hope that we have (1 Peter 3:15).
We can react with preparedness rather than panic, love in the wake of loss. Ours is a time for profound generosity, resounding trust, and critical compassion.
So friends, let’s be the Church. (Check out this post on Spurgeon’s response to the cholera outbreak of 1854.) As so many past generations of Christ’s Bride have done, let us love well, serve long, and praise in the depths.
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea.
