Hello I am Matthew, and this is Truth For The Times, in 60 Seconds.
With concerns growing the United States, people are taking extreme measures to protect themselves. Ohio, Maryland, and Michigan are the first states to close all K-12 schools. Theme parks, major sports, and as news about the virus grows direr each day, global markets have continued to tumble.
And China showed it’s evil heart and threatened in a state newspaper story that it could impose controls on its drug exports which it said would lead to America being “plunged into the mighty sea of coronavirus.”
The nearly 48,000 churches of the Southern Baptist Convention will take time to pray on Sunday, asking God to stop the pandemic, give leaders wisdom, and protect missionaries and their families serving around the globe. Will you join them?
Well, we have much to pray about. Remember God’s word in Lamentations 3:56-57 “You heard me when I cried, “Listen to my pleading! Hear my cry for help!” Yes, you came when I called; you told me, “Do not fear.”
