We all know that the pandemic has struck us all Worldwide..
As children of God WHAT SHOULD BE OUR PRAYER to stand in the gap and to turn the wrath of God???
As I was pondering..I was reminded of a similar situation we read in
Let David’s prayer be our prayer.. Let us humble ourselves before the LORD and confess to HIM that we are the very ones that sinned.. Let us not talk about and point out fingers on others (mistakes of the politicians, leaders, the sins of others) and blame them to be the reason for this judgement of God upon us.. WeAreResponsible for anything and everything happening in our country.. So let us humble ourselves before the Lord.. CONFESS THAT YOU AND I HAVE SINNED AGAINST HIM and plead for HIS mercies!!
So the Lord sent a plague upon Israel, and seventy thousand men of Israel fell. And God sent an angel to Jerusalem to destroy it. As he was destroying, the Lord looked and relented of the disaster, and said to the angel who was destroying, “It is enough; now restrain your hand.” And the angel of the Lord stood by the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. Then David lifted his eyes and saw the angel of the Lord standing between earth and heaven, having in his hand a drawn sword stretched out over Jerusalem. So David and the elders, clothed in sackcloth, fell on their faces. And David said to God, “Was it not I who commanded the people to be numbered? I am the one who has sinned and done evil indeed; but these sheep, what have they done? Let Your hand, I pray, O Lord my God, be against me and my father’s house, but not against Your people that they should be plagued.”
The LORD says….
II Chronicles 7:14:
If MY PEOPLE who are called by My name WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES , and pray and seek My face, and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
