Let's Cry Out

 

Join us in Crying Out to our God as a whole church. We may be separated physically by a ban, but we can rally together in prayer. In this season of unprecedented pain and fear for this generation worldwide, let's cry out in faith! These are times of deep pain, deep fear, deep unrest. We are facing pandemics on two fronts: COVID-19 virus, and racial hurt.

Below is a guide to a small 5 -10 minute prayer time that you can walk through at the three times per day – morning, noon and night. We will be praying three times per day all through the month of May!

Pick a time each day, or join for all three prayer times. When you have some time, take just a few minutes and come before your king. We have a verse to read, a thanksgiving to lift, and a request to make.

Let’s rally to cry out for those needing healing from the COVID virus or its many effects. Let’s cry out for those hurting from the deep racial hurts that underlay so many people’s daily experiences. Let’s cry out for all those leading our governments, caring in our medical community, or serving in our law enforcement.

May God get all the glory!

"LET’S CRY OUT" MORNING - NOON - NIGHT GUIDE


MORNING PRAYER (COVID-19 FOCUS)

Read this verse several times:
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. ~ Isaiah 41:10

Now Praise Your God: 
That He is with you. That He loves you. That He will provide, strengthen and care for you. In our loss, our God cares.

Now Read these verses several times: 
O Lord, be gracious to us; we wait for you. Be our arm every morning, our salvation in the time of trouble. Isaiah 33:2

Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise. ~ Jeremiah 17:14 

Finally, Cry Out to Your God:

  • For God’s sovereignty/purpose to be trusted
  • For God’s physical healing for all those sick with COVID
  • For protection for those that are more at risk for sickness in this time
  • For God’s healing and restoration of local businesses and economies
  • For God’s provision for those who have lost jobs or were furloughed
  • For the lonely or isolated in this season of isolation

NOON PRAYER (RACIAL PANDEMIC FOCUS)

Read these verses several times: 
And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.” ~ Revelation 5:9-10 

Now Praise Your God: 
That your God is amazing, worthy above all else in all creation to be worshipped. That he has provided for you and for every tribe, tongue and nation.

Now Read these verses several times: 
If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. ~ 2 Chronicles 7:14 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. ~ 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Finally, Cry Out to Your God:

  • For humility to hear what I need to hear about the hurt or plight of others
  • For my eyes and mind to be open to the hurt and plight of others
  • For unity in our homes, our church, our country
  • For salvation of the many who do not currently know Christ
  • For our land to be healed of the evil of hatred.
  • Heal my heart of any unforgiveness or prejudicial judgment.
  • May we be a light in a dark and hurting world

NIGHT PRAYER (LEADERSHIP FOCUS)

Read these verses several times: 
Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. ~ 1 Peter 2:13-16 

Now Praise Your God: 
That God is ultimately sovereign over all leadership. That God is at work even in the hearts of the unsaved. That he provides all leaders, not just some. That they are all in His hands.

Now Read these verses several times: 
…On this rock I will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. ~ Matthew 16:18

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. ~ 1 Timothy 2:1-2

Finally, Cry Out to Your God:

  • For God to “cut to the heart” as He calls many to Himself
  • For the church to be a beacon of hope and life in Jesus
  • For the church leadership to know how to handle hurts and confusions
  • For leadership of this country and state to be wise and timely in all decisions
  • For law enforcement to be wise with each interaction, and protected as they do
  • For this country to experience healing hope in Jesus
