UPDATE #2 - Coronavirus Update - 3.12.20 8:44pm

Posted by Tony Mathews on

UPDATE #2 

The following is adapted from the SBC.

In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic, we are asking all Southern Baptists and our 47,500+ churches of the Southern Baptist Convention to commit to a dedicated time of prayer this Sunday, March 15, 2020, to seek the Lord in unity about these matters:

1. Ask God, in His mercy, to stop this pandemic and save lives—not only in our communities but around the world, particularly in places that are unequipped medically to deal with the virus. (Isaiah 59:1-2)

2. Pray for President Trump, his cabinet, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, the CDC, Doctors, workers at hospitals, other government leaders—international, federal, state, and local—to have the wisdom to direct us in the best courses of action for prevention and care.
(1 Timothy 2:1-3)


3. Scripture says—teach us to number our days carefully so that we may develop wisdom in our hearts. Pray that the Lord will give us wisdom in this moment of fear as the foundations of what we know are shaken, that others would realize how fragile life is and how real eternity is, and they would see their need to turn to God. (Psalm 90:12)

4. Ask God to protect our missionaries and their families around the globe, using this global crisis to advance His Good News to the whole world. (Mark 16:15)

For the Kingdom,

Tony Mathews
