Prayer for Today (07/04/20)
I have no doubt that all believers in the country started to pray for our Prime Minister last night. As this virus, which is no respecter of persons, continues to cause great harm and disruption, and surprises us each day as it intensifies. So, throughout this Holy Week, join me in praying that this will ‘pass over’.
As we read in Exodus 12:13 during the first Passover, they killed the lamb and put the blood on the doorposts. This caused the destroyer to pass over their families because God said, “And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you…” The blood was for the people’s forgiveness. The blood covered the people’s sins and appeased the righteous requirements of God.
Dear Lord, we intercede for brothers and sisters for this plague to pass over. You call us to pray for our leaders and now bring before you all those who are running the UK. We especially, pray for our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, who is in intensive care. We pray that he will get through this and come out stronger! We also lift our neighbours, friends and family who are in intensive care. Lord, bring healing and peace! In Jesus name. Amen!
