The coronavirus pandemic has thrown our world into turmoil, causing untold suffering and tragic deaths. But even amid the devastation, God is moving in the hearts of many to draw people to himself and build his Church. The NAE joins with member denominations and others in calling for a Day of Prayer & Fasting on Good Friday, April 10.

Message From the President

“Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper” (Jeremiah 29:7).

On Good Friday, let’s call God’s people to pray and fast throughout the nation. We will be praying in different languages. Some will be using liturgy; others will be speaking in tongues. But all will be praying in faith that God reigns, listens and responds.

As we pray, some things come to mind. Let’s pray:

  • for God’s love to be the foundation of our hope;
  • for God’s mercy in stopping the spread of this virus;
  • for God’s healing of those who are sick throughout the world;
  • for God’s strength for medical personnel serving tirelessly;
  • for God’s insight to be given to researchers seeking solutions;
  • for God’s wisdom to guide civic leaders and health officials;
  • for God’s peace to guard us from fear or anxiety;
  • for God’s provision for those whose livelihoods and income have been affected by this crisis;
  • for God’s creativity to make us agents of love and compassion; and
  • for God’s Spirit to draw people to the saving power of Jesus.

May we know the Lord’s comfort and strength in our prayer: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6–7).
