COVID19 Call to Prayer – June 21: King Over All the Earth

1 Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy.
2 For the LORD Most High is awesome, the great King over all the earth.
~ Psalm 47:1-2

Christianity is communal.  It’s not just for individuals but for the nations.  Christianity is multi-ethnic.  It is for all the nations.  A call to praise, to repentance, to faith and to joy.

“If I cared for nothing, I would pray for nothing.”
~
Melanchthon

Petition: Please join with us in praying for:

1. Israel – The number of confirmed cases is 20,633, with 305 deaths of those with Covid-19.
Israel has seen an increase in cases since lifting restrictions – largely amongst the Arab population.
It is seeking quarantine-free travel with Australia by December.

2. South Australia –now has had 440 cases (up 0 from a week ago), with 4 deaths (up 0).
In Australia there have been 7,436 cases (up 26). 25 of these are in Victoria, which is now not going ahead with easing restrictions.  There have been 102 deaths (up 0).  6,888 people have recovered (up 8).  16 are in hospital (2 in ICU).  2,005,378 have been tested, with 0.4% being positive.

3.  There has been an alleged terror attack in the UK – with several people stabbed in Reading. At least three are dead.

4.  Israeli scientists have developed a Covid-19 breathalyser, which detects Covid-19 in one minute, and is claimed to be 90% successful. It could be installed at airports and other public places.

5.  As more churches are tentatively re-opening their buildings, pray they would be protected.

A Prayer of Repentance:
Lord Jesus, where is our joy?
We confess that we have sought our joy in other things and not in You.
Give us back the joy we had, make our willing spirit glad.  For Your glory,  Amen.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving:  

6 Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7 For God is the King of all the earth; sing to Him a psalm of praise.
8 God reigns over the nations; God is seated on His holy throne.
~ Psalm 47:6-8
