We must PRAY ALWAYS to GOD our FATHER in the name of JESUS to supply our needs in these trying and turbulent TIMES:

Today being the 1st of the month when bills such as rent and utilities ar due to be paid, undoubtedly untold numbers of people now without work due to the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 global pandemic may not be in a position to pay these bills. We must not give up hope but must keep the FAITH, PRAYING ALWAYS to GOD in the name of JESUS to provide for us.

“The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous” (Proverbs 15:29).

Our FATHER in the name of JESUS we give you THANKS for hearing our PRAYERS and for your BLEESSINGS, GOODNESS AND MERCIES THIS DAY.

“[IT IS A GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS] unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness [IN THE MORNING, AND THY FAITHFULNESS EVERY NIGHT]” (Psalm 92:1-2).

“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will [I DIRECT MY PRAYER UNTO THEE], and will look up. For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity. [FOR THOU], LORD, [WILT BLESS THE RIGHTEOUS]; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield” (Psalm 5:3-5, 12).

Our Lord, Savior and King JESUS says: “[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).

JESUS is our SHEPHERD and we are his FLOCK.

“THE LORD is my shepherd; [I SHALL NOT WANT].

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

[HE RESTORETH MY SOUL: HE LEADETH ME IN THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR HIS NAME’S SAKE].

[YEA, THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, I WILL FEAR NO EVIL: FOR THOU ART WITH ME]; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

[SURELY GOODNESS AND MERCY SHALL FOLLOW ME ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE: AND I WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOR EVER]” (Psalm 23:1-6).

“[GOD], who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, [HATH IN THESE LAST DAYS SPOKEN UNTO US BY HIS SON], whom he [HATH APPOINTED HEIR] of all things, by whom also he [MADE THE WORLDS]” (Hebrews 1:1–2).

When we go to sleep every night and awake every morning, thanks to God in the name of JESUS, we must be at peace knowing that we have the FATHER and the SON through the HOLY SPIRIT now called in the KINGDOM OF GOD.

We must therefore, live every day in FAITH, HOPE and TRUST in GOD in the name of JESUS fearing no one and nothing in this world especially in the midst of the current Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 global pandemic.

We must keep praying to God in the name of JESUS:

God is our refuge and strength (Psalm 46:1-2) - Poster with Bible text quotation

“How are we going to provide for ourselves during this global pandemic?”

With country after country on “lockdown” with schools, churches, businesses and practically everything closed down; without any doubt, people from all walks of life are concerned about how they will provide for themselves if this pandemic goes on for an extended period of time.

Specifically, there is grave concern among individuals and families being at home without work to earn a living to take care of their livelihood.

At times like these we must pray to God in the name of Jesus believing and having faith that our prayers will be answered.

“Wait on the LORD: [BE OF GOOD COURAGE, AND HE SHALL STRENGTHEN THINE HEART]: wait, I say, on the LORD” (Psalms 27:14).

Our Lord Jesus said: “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).

“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23–24).

“And I say unto you, ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Luke 11:9–10).

The Apostle Paul remined us to “…pray without ceasing…” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) said: “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:14-16).

“And [WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD], to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

“[OUR HELP IS IN THE NAME] of the LORD, [WHO MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH]” (Psalm 124:8).

“I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

We must PRAY to our FATHER in the name of JESUS for healing us from ALL DISEASES:

“BLESS the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; [WHO HEALETH ALL THY DISEASES];

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children;

To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul” (Psalm 103:1-6, 11, 13-14, 17-18,22).

“The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all” (Psalm 103:19).

“Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us” (Psalm 62:8).

“Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD” (Psalm 106:48).

P R A Y without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

“The LORD is far from the wicked: but he [HEARETH THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS]” (Proverbs 15:29).

Our FATHER we PRAY in the name of your beloved Son JESUS.

We pray for those who are unemployed, in financial distress, lonely, weary, frightened about life circumstances or simply disillusioned about life;

We pray for those who are suffering from illness or sickness for their seedy recovery;

We pray for those who are hungry anh homeless in need of food and shelter;

We pray for those among us who are in a position to help others who are in need of food, clothing, shelter and other basic needs to make through this day.

Many throughout time have doubted the power of prayer and said, in essence, “This is easier said than done.”

However, Jesus emphasized, saying: “And I say unto you, ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Luke 11:9–10).

We must be strong and pray to God in Jesus’ name. Also, be reminded what Jesus also said: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23–24).

“Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).
