The COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus global pandemic has drastically changed peoples lives across all corners on this earth. We find ourselves being locked down in our homes without work, and untold numbers of people have little or no means to pay for food, water, rent, expenses and so on. Our lives have become more of a struggle!
We must hold fast to the word of God in times such as these to PRAY to God in the name of JESUS to bring us through each day. The Apostle Paul expressed, said:
“[BE CAREFUL FOR NOTHING; BUT IN EVERY THING BY PRAYER] and supplication with thanksgiving [LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN UNTO GOD]. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
Our Lord JESUS reminds us saying: “Therefore I say unto you, ‘[TAKE NO THOUGHT FOR YOUR LIFE, WHAT YE SHALL EAT; NEITHER FOR THE BODY, WHAT YE SHALL PUT ON]. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?’” (Luke 12:22-24).
“Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? [BUT SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU]” (Matthew 6:31).
“[WHEN YE PRAY, USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS, AS THE HEATHEN DO[: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: [FOR YOUR FATHER KNOWETH WHAT THINGS YE HAVE NEED OF, BEFORE YE ASK HIM]” (Matthew 6:7-8).
“[AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE]: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. [GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD]. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13).
