How Should we be Praying?
Summary: How should Christians deal with the current pandemic at a spiritual level. We have received extensive instruction through the media for managing the corona-virus epidemic.
What is needed in addition to that is how to deal with it on a spiritual level.
In reality, the spiritual realm drives the material world, not visa versa.
The instruction I am about to share is for Christians. There is only one instruction for the ungodly: turn from your sin to God, surrender your life to the LORD, and embrace Christ as your Savior.
If you're not in right relationship with God, now is the time to turn to Him with all your heart.
Ask God to forgive you of your sins and take over your life.
For the Christian, every crisis is a call to seek God.
He is a very present help in time of trouble.
Point I. At the right time we PRAY AN AUTHORITATIVE PRAYER commanding the plague to cease.
There is an appropriate time to tell a mountain to be removed or a fig tree to dry up and die.
Point II. PRAYER IS A CRUCIAL FACTOR in stopping the corona-virus pandemic.
We see that in the plague that broke out in Numbers 16.
That chapter records the rebellion of Korah and the judgment that fell on those people.
Seeing that judgment scared the people, but it did not change their hearts.
Point III. Daniel's prayer in Chapter 9 provides a MODEL FOR ASKING GOD'S INTERVENTION.
This is the kind of prayer the church should be praying at this time.
It positions us for receiving God's help in time of need.
In the first two verses we see Daniel aligning himself with the will of God and the timing of God.
