16 Apr Seeking a Miracle for the Sick
The virus is not a social condition that we must endure. It is an illness that is affecting human lives. Daily, the numbers tell us how many people have contracted the disease. But what the numbers don’t say – is how many people are experiencing symptoms at home yet are unable to get testing. Beyond the COVID-19 virus, people are still dealing other illnesses that makes them particularly susceptible to the new coronavirus. Social isolation is an absolute imperative to keep people healthy. Yet, social isolation makes the situation so much more difficult for the sick as they now must go through medical testing and procedures without their support system. The psychological toll is also growing as a result.
We NEED a miracle from God to stop the pandemic and the ripple affect it is having in the lives of families and the world at large. We NEED Jesus to HEAL the masses as recorded in Matthew 14:13-14.
“Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a desolate place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.”
This is our prayer! God still heals, He is the miracle worker who we seek. A couple of days ago, a friend asked us to pray for a young pastor who was hospitalized with the virus. His family was told to make final arrangements because the prognosis was not good. Two days later, he is doing better. As we pray for his continued improvement, we also pray for everyone who are suffering. We invite you to pray Psalm 77:11-14 with us for those who are sick and infirmed.
I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
I will consider all your works
and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”
Your ways, God, are holy.
What god is as great as our God?
You are the God who performs miracles;
you display your power among the peoples.
Let’s remember the healing miracles Jesus has performed and beseech Him to do it again. If you are joining us in prayer or if you have someone specific you are seeking healing for, let us know in the comments.
