So much is happening around us that can cause people to wonder “what in the world is going on?” We are watching friends and fellow Mainers lose their livelihoods out of no fault of their own; we know people who have contracted the coronavirus, and there appears to be an all-out assault on our civil liberties, especially our religious liberties.
Few can argue the fact that leading up to COVID-19, there was an increasing apathy toward the things that matter to God. Our state and nation have traded the goodness of God for what the world has to offer. And we have become less concerned about telling others about Jesus.
I don’t know about you, but recent events have stirred in me an even deeper commitment to want to make a difference in my country. And more importantly, I want others to experience the peace that only Jesus Christ can offer. 2 Peter 3:9 says that God is not willing that any should perish.
Concerned Women for America (CWA) is rooted in prayer. We believe the Bible is our standard for living and that a country and its people will only thrive when the foundation is built on His truths. So even in these uncertain times there are ways to engage, and I wanted to offer several ways you can take action and pray.
- Ask the Lord to show you a person(s) who needs prayer and then be sure to pray for them.
- Ask the Lord to guide you to a person with whom you can share the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The simplest way to do it is just to share what Jesus means to you and what He has done in your life. Use these verses to guide your conversation: John 3:16 and Romans 3:23, 6:23, 5:8, 10:9-10, and 10:13.
- Send this message to family and friends.
Please Pray: Dear Father, we are struggling worldwide because of this pandemic. It is a perfect opportunity to share the Gospel as people share their own personal struggles. Please show each reader of this message at least one person with whom to share Your truth. As You do this, it will be confirmation that You want it done. May You have the glory. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
“This world is not our home; we are just a passing through.” Everything we do for God will last for eternity. May you be blessed by knowing God used You to enlarge His Kingdom.
