Sunday, April 12, 2020 “The Stone”

Good evening and welcome to the Sunday Night Edition of “We are the People” Prayer for America. Every Sunday we bring together the hearts of intercessors that choose to invest a minimum of 15 minutes in prayers of agreement between the hours of 6:00p.m. and 9:00p.m. using the three focus points listed below as a guide. May God bless you for your concern for America’s future expressed in prayer tonight. We encourage you to join us in prayer daily and invite others to join us.

Mark 16:2-4   Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb  and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.

Happy Easter! This text reminds us of the fact that even though we are people of faith we still wonder about the “what if’s” in life. What if the stone still covered the tomb and “who will roll the stone away.” This Easter many wonder – when will the Covid-10 situation be over? Will some “roll away or turn over the right stone” to bring a good safe medicine for the virus or a vaccine that will prevent its spread.

Follow me on this thought utilizing the three prayer focus items that I have listed for tonight’s gathering of intercessors.

Prayer Focus #1 The ladies came to the tomb at daybreak. Had they come in the darkness before sunrise they could have stumbled and fell. PRAY tonight that researchers will be using light they have from past epidemics to help them find some answers quickly. The last thing we need right now is people fumbling around in the darkness. David’s first smooth stone brought down Goliath. May the Lord direct Doctors and researchers putting His light on the good, safe remedies He already knows of.

Prayer Focus #2 “Who will roll away the stone?” The focus of the ladies was on human effort. They did not consider the Almighty God we serve. PRAY that we will call on the “God that healeth thee” to intervene and apply the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ to heal and protect as He passes over the homes of believers as He did in ancient Egypt so long ago.

Prayer Focus #3 Yes, there are some large stones preventing some people even Christians from seeing Jesus and all His power and authority in this Corona virus pandemic. PRAY that there will be an epiphany for many Christ followers to see Jesus our Savior and Lord as our great deliverer from this plague that has troubled our land. The ladies “looked up” and could see the way God had made. Let us see the way God has made for us with believing hearts.
