Churches all over the country, in fact, all over the world, are praying that the coronavirus might be stopped in its tracks.
I am doing all I can personally, and I hope you are too, to stop the spread. I think the casual approach to COVID-19 is disappearing in Australia – people of all ages are discovering how serious the situation is.
I saw recently a harrowing video from a pastor in Ireland – from his hospital bed. He warned ‘this virus is out to kill you.’ It was a sobering thought.
For Christians, we should take precautions and pray. I am praying that the love of Jesus might be spread everywhere as people take care of each other especially those who are shut in and vulnerable.
Will you also stop today to pray for your family, friends, and fellow Australians – that this virus is stopped?
