Every evening at 8.00 we are deeply touched by the applause that resonates from the balconies of our cities.
It is an open thanksgiving for the sacrifices made and dangers faced by all those working in the high risk areas of health care and public safety.
If you personally know a health worker or a police person, pray for them.
Think of the doctor who normally attends you, of the auxiliaries in the Albox medical centre, and pray for them.
Pray for their safety and wellbeing. Pray for their families. Pray for their salvation:
“The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”
12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.
13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
. . .and pray that in the midst of the turmoil they may encounter peace through knowledge of the one true God.
We may not have balconies, but perhaps we can take this up as a Group project: to take just a moment each evening at 8.00 to remember these precious people in prayer.
And let us continue to preach that ‘word of faith’ from our mouths at every opportunity so that others may hear the truth of Jesus, and His death and resurrection, and may ‘call on the name of the Lord and be saved.’
