Have you said a prayer for the world against COVID-19 transmission? I’m sure, the usual question to expect anyone to ask will be, “Have you washed your hands today? Or used your hand sanitizer?
Yes, those are important measures to put in place, but I would rather wish we also remind ourselves to say a prayer against COVID-19 and it’s spread.
The times we are in are dangerous times. Isn’t it surprising that, in a matter of days, everyone logs on to the internet to count the number of deaths recorded by countries. In a matter of days, a friend coming from overseas as “bogger”, who should receive a warm welcome is now seen as a hazard.
In a matter of days, travelling has been banned, you can’t get close to a friend or relative you knew minutes ago without taking precautions – social distancing.
Everyone is affected one way or another. I couldn’t go out to play my usual Saturday football match this morning. All gatherings have been banned, schools closed and countries almost locking down. All with the intention of reducing the spread of COVID-19 disease.
It should be a concern for all. Now one may wonder why all this. One may ask whether God sees all that is happening on earth. Indeed He knows everything going on. I wasn’t surprised when I saw in the attached video, a prophecy by one of my most respected Prophets, Emmanuel Makandiwa, prophesy about this in November 2016. Yes, 4 years ago.
Due to the influx of many false prophets, lots of people think all prophecies are false. But the truth still remains that, in these end times, the most sought-after gift will be the prophetic gift. As God did to John the revelator, He will unravel a lot of untold events to his prophets. One of them is COVID-19.
Before its inception, God showed this to His servant, Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa. This is a confirmation that “surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. (Amos 3:7)
The good thing about the prophecy was that, God gave the remedy, which is Prayer. Christians must rise to an unceasing prayer against COVID-19 for God to halt it’s spread.
I can’t agree differently with Prophet Makandiwa that the prayer of Christians will salvage this pandemic the world is facing. This pandemic sends my mind to the plague in Egypt according to Exodus 11. I’m asking myself, is the world being sent a message by the Almighty?
As Christians, we do believe this world is more spiritual than physical. It is the spiritual realm that dictates and manifests in the physical. This is the reason why prayer (a weapon in the realm of the spirit) can be the greatest weapon to salvage this enormous situation.
If you haven’t prayed against the spread of COVID-19, please do now and always till it ceases to take the lives of our precious loved ones.
I end with this quote in 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
We must rise and pray.
