Praying through the crisis

Amid the deluge of news this week about the COVID-19 global pandemic, I want to share something from the International Mission Board. They released a resource called "Praying Through the Crisis." I encourage you to follow this link and use this resource with your church.

Here's an excerpt.

Ways you can pray:

  • Pray for believers around the world to stand firm in Christ during this tumultuous time.

  • Pray for them to share the gospel and meet needs with more passion, fervor and creativity than ever before.

  • Pray that IMB workers will walk each day without fear and with confidence that God has placed them in their locations for such a time as this.

  • Pray that people around the world will respond positively to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

May His name be proclaimed among every nation, tribe, people and language today and for all eternity.
