frequently asked questions
With so much fear around us, what can we do as followers of Christ?
Do not fear. Scripture assures us time and again that God is in control and that we need not fear (Deuteronomy 31:8, Psalm 46:1, Isaiah 41:10, John 14:27, 2 Timothy 1:7). In a time like this when many are afraid, we can be a witness to them by our faith and hope in our Lord.
Pray. Paul’s words to the church in Philippi serve as great encouragement and challenge to us in uncertain times like this. Having recently come out of a powerful series, Pray20, it shouldn’t surprise us that God would bless our church by giving us such a relevant time to trust Him by seeking Him in prayer.
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your graciousness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. 6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. — Philippians 4:4-7 (CSB)
- Pray for our neighbors, city, and world. Many are affected by this virus and many others are crippled with fear. Pray for healing and comfort!
- Pray for medical professionals and people in authority who are tasked with handling this crisis. Pray for wisdom and compassion!
- Pray for local churches. Pray that they would lead the way in their communities by trusting the Lord and loving people!
- Pray for missionaries and workers who are abroad. Pray that this crisis would lead to many opportunities to share the gospel and advance the kingdom of God!
