A message about Covid 19 from Bro. David, 17th April 2020
Hello, Brothers and Sisters. I would like to thank you for any time you have been able to give to pray for the safety of our people from the corona virus. Unquestionably that prayer has paid off. For 4 days after the hour of prayer on Palm Sunday the number of deaths in Northern Ireland dropped significantly. The same happened for 3 days after the hour of prayer on Easter Sunday. These are only highlights, of course. We cannot measure what God's response has been to the great amount of prayer being carried on faithfully by individuals, families and churches. At the very least it has held back the surge of the corona virus from being anywhere near as bad as was predicted.

So what am I suggesting now?

1. Could we try to pray for an hour, or part of an hour, this Sunday, April 19th, between 3 and 4pm? We will be doing it in company with many thousands of others, at the same time. Could we also continue to contact as many people as possible and ask them to pray as well?

2. It has been suggested that some people might like to fast as well as pray. I believe prayer and fasting is the most powerful spiritual combination we have.

3. There is no question that we are in the midst of a major battle against the corona virus. That requires us to use all the spiritual resources at our disposal if we are going to win that battle. So I am suggesting that some of us might like pray every day for at least part of the hour between 3 and 4. The tougher the battle gets the more we need to pray.

4. Thursday night has become the traditional time now to go to our doors and applaud NHS staff and all in service industries. Absolutely right. They are doing a terrific job. I wonder if those of us who are people of faith could also be applauding to Almighty God in thanksgiving for what He is doing? Maybe we could start to bring this thought to the consciousness of many people?

5. I believe that one of the ways we need to pray is, as well as asking God to drive back the corona virus, to ask Him to protect the progress already made through prayer. I have sometimes found that when great healing takes place that healing can be lost if we do not ask God to protect it.

6. We are going to have another morning of prayer for EfL on Wednesday, May 6th from 10am to 12.30pm.

Brothers and Sisters, I feel in my spirit that the contribution of people of faith, through prayer, is a vital ingredient in the battle against the corona virus. Let's do the very best we can to help our people, so many of whom are suffering at this time.

Keep well
Keep safe
Keep praying ( Mrs. Lorraine Graham )
