Closing Prayer

Rev David Major



The entire world has not faced a crisis of this magnitude since World War II. As nations are confronted with this pandemic let us as Christians use the powerful weapon of prayer and intercession as never before. The apostle James reminds us "the earnest (heartfelt and continued ) prayer of a righteous person makes tremendous power available (James 5:16 Amp )


The Bible likens prayer to incense (Rev 5:8 ) In Ex17: 8-15  Moses takes Aaron and Hur o the hilltop to pray and as long as his hands were lifted up Joshua and his army prevailed against the enemy. 'Vertical engagement in prayer led to 'horizontal' victory against the enemy. Let us employ the strategy our present enemy namely coronavirus and see it defeated.


Some prayer points in on this topic

  • The turning of the tide in regard to the pandemic
  • Speedy discovery and production of anti-virus vaccines
  • Our Prime Minister and her Cabinet for having to make difficult decisions (e.g. health and economic)
  • For  all personnel involved in essential services, e.g: doctors and nurses and staff, food production and delivery, police etc
  • Everyone will conscientiously obey COVD-19 guidelines.
  • Fellow New Zealander's and families
  • Faced with such a danger, people will awaken to their need for God and in due course, this will provide all Christians great opportunities to share the gospel

I would like to specially commend to you Psalms 91, 27:1-6, 18:1-3 esp in the Passion Version. Our first place of security is a person: God Himself, He is our refuge our fortress. Secondly our home and following COVD-19 guidelines. Biblical precedents for sanitation guidelines, see Lev chs13-15



In the bonds of  Christ
