Prayer Focus

By Rev. Ademola Babatunde

Introduction

As we are all aware that this COVID-19 has been declared a global pandemic and measures are being taken to stop the spread of this infection.

However, as believers in God, we should be encouraged to go on our knees with the confidence that God has the whole world in His Hands. Let us turn our worries to prayer because there is a God who bends His ear to listen.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7
