Prayer #17: For Easter Services During This Challenging Season of Coronavirus Impact
Tomorrow will be an Easter that, in a way, none of us have ever experienced before. We will not be able to congregate together in our church buildings to worship God, due to Coronavirus restrictions. Services are being streamed, for the most part, from area churches, so Easter will be celebrated in our homes.
Still, all of the great truths of Easter are still there! Jesus rose again from the grace in resurrection power. He gained victory over death and sin. And He reigns, seated at the Father's right hand. So tomorrow, as every day, as Christians, we will proclaim, "Hallelujah, He is risen!!"
May many who don't know the great joy of these truths be impacted in powerful ways tomorrow as Easter is celebrated through online services.
We pray now, in preparation for tomorrow, that our joy of Easter may be in no way diminished by the Coronavirus restrictions that prevent us from gathering together for worship. Pray that in fact, this will be a very special Easter that we will not soon forget. Most of all, pray that many who don't know Christ would view at least one online service. Pray that God would use this to reach their hearts with the hope of Easter and the Gospel of Christ, at a time when so many are frightened and discouraged. May Jesus Christ be greatly praised tomorrow on Easter Day!
