I pray especially during this time of global threat, whether the primary stress is fear of COVID itself, or of job loss, or stress of isolation, etc., that those who are distraught and affected by this present situation would be brought into right standing & closer relationship with You.

I pray, Father, enlighten the eyes of Your people’s understanding (Eph.1:18) about what steps must be taken to ensure each ones’ walk is upright, in a state of obedience, surrender, trust, and total reliance on YOU. Bring conviction of any areas in each ones’ life/walk which requires some adjustment, repentance, and righteousness in order to bring their relationship into right standing before You. 

Speak Your Words of Truth into each heart, reminding each one that when they made their commitment to You, they were forfeiting their “rights” to call the shots in their lives, for they no longer belong to themselves, they belong to You (1 Cor.6:19,20). Bring conviction, take the scales off their eyes (Acts 9:18), and lift the veils of darkness (Isa.25:7; 2 Cor.4:3,4).

Bring Your Words alive to each one that it is when we keep/are faithful/obedient/walk in surrender to that which we have been instructed, the things that will ultimately be a blessing in our lives will be established; and, more than anything else the blessings of our experience of You in our lives will become increasingly realized for each one of us, for “He who has My commandments (commandments/His Word does not consist solely of the “Ten Commandments” – they include whatever messages/instructions have been given individually) and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him   . . . . . .  If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me” (John 14:21-24).

Enable each one now to connect the dots from these stipulations, these truths, to this very current situation of COVID with all its concomitant offshoots. 

I pray for those who are waiting for blessings, to submerge themselves into their walk with You, Lord, and walk in righteousness and holiness, to return to their first love, (Rev.2:4,5), repent for failing to keep covenant, rest in You, wait on You, knowing that the blessings will flow upon making things right. In Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name. Amen.
