DIMAPUR, MAR 19 (NPN) | Publish Date: 3/19/2020 12:38:10 PM IST

NBCC prayer points include praying for the affected countries, an end to spread of virus, for God’s healing mercy for bringing this pandemic to an end and for healing all those affected by the virus. It also called for praying for government leaders in the region, country and beyond for God’s wisdom, those in positions of authority during national emergency and for all those making decisions related to public health and safety.

Appealing to pray for provision and protection for healthcare establishments, including government healthcare departments, hospitals and healthcare providers all over the world, the council said there should also be prayers for church leaders. As pastors were making difficult decisions related to public worship and safety of their members, it called for praying that pastors would have wisdom to faithfully shepherd the congregations under their care and so that Christians would love their neighbours well during these trying times.

The council called for praying for the vulnerable, for protection of the elderly, diseased and those facing financial hardship and for students required to vacate university and colleges so that God’s people meet these opportunities with wisdom and grace. It appealed to Christians to pray for honest reporting and for those in news media so that reporters and journalists would accurately report updates about the status of the virus.

Calling for prayers for a spirit of generosity, the council appealed to pray that God’s people would manifest a spirit of generosity and sacrificially give their time and resources to meet needs that would arise.

NBCC said pray for “our children” returning home on emergency holiday or studying outside the State for God’s grace and protection, for “our people” living in different parts of the country and beyond and for enduring faith during this season of heightened fear, anxiety, and confusion.

Calling for taking appropriate precautions, the council said Christians must continue to rely on God and trust His purposes and plans. It urged all its members to stay connected with family, friends and church members through phone calls, texts, emails, social media, etc.  “We can encourage and support one another through these avenues of communication and through prayer. Let us trust God in all circumstances, remaining calm in times of distress, extending compassion to those who are suffering, and praying for the healing of the world,” the council exhorted.
