Over the past several weeks, IFA staff has pressed into the Lord about how He wants us to pray about the coronavirus and the personal and communal responses to the virus. We want you to know that we have been earnestly praying for you and the entire community as we all experience these unprecedented events.
We want to invite you to pray with us tomorrow, Friday, March 13, 2020, at 12:15 pm ET. This will be a phone call only prayer conference call. Dial (712) 775-7431, code 2452#.
We want to pray with you and join together to pray in agreement to speak peace over this situation.
Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace. (Lk 1:78-79)
A few days ago, right when we were praying about the coronavirus in America, one of our intercessors, Brenda, called with this message:
The spirit of fear is unchecked in our nation. That spirit has multiplied itself from all the outrageous tactics we have seen on Capitol Hill, tactics used against this nation and leaders. Now the people are living under that weight. Events like the Kavanaugh hearings, impeachment hearings, and more hate headlines have crippled our government’s effectiveness. Now it is crippling the people. It has multiplied itself and is out of control in the natural. This spirit is spread through channels of the media. It has been spread in whatever form is present to reach the eyes and ears of humans. I know the virus is worldwide, but we are talking about the tangible manifestations in our Nation.
Pray and release 2 Timothy 1:7 over our nation, our leaders, and our fellow citizens: For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
