President Trump announced that March 15 was a National Day of Prayer after declaring a national emergency over the coronavirus pandemic.
On this day of prayer, people around the world are praying for God’s protection and wisdom amid growing concerns.
“So Lord, we do call on Your Name, not just about our personal concerns but for the entire human family around the world. We want you to give wisdom and guidance to our president and the international leaders as they do their best to protect the people from the coronavirus. Be with the scientists as they seek to develop a vaccination to bring this epidemic do an end. We are in Your hands today Lord and we thank you for loving us. Amen.”
Warren added that he is aware of the anxiety and fear over the coronavirus but he is praying daily to relieve those worries.
During on online church service, Pastor Jentezen Franklin of Free Chapel reminded those listening that praying is a major part of our purpose here on earth.
“From the beginning of the book of Genesis, prayer and communion with God has been a part of man’s purpose. A major part of our purpose, as being on this earth is to pray,” Franklin said. “I don’t think we are awaken to our assignment in this area like we need to be. I want more prayer in the church, I want more prayer in my life, I want more prayer in our homes, I want more prayer in our cars, I want more prayers under our breaths and on our jobs. We need to be people of prayer.”
