Prayer #1: That We Would Seek God as Our Refuge
This an important one, and is really, the first thing that God's people should do-run to Him as our refuge. There are many Scripture verses that speak of seeking God's shelter in times of trouble. Here are some:
- Ps. 27:5 "For He will hide me in His shelter in the day of trouble; He will conceal me under the cover of His tent, He will set me high upon a rock."
- Ps. 37:39 "The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their refuge in the time of trouble."
- Ps. 46:10 "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
- Jn. 14:1 "Let your heart not be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me."
So today, let's pray for God's people, in this time of trouble, to run to Him as our shelter and refuge. It is the first thing we should do. Pray that during this crisis, many who do not know God would discover Him to be the very security they are now looking for.
