Weekly Watch Focus: National Day of Prayer & Economic Recovery

Friday, May 1, 2020—Next Thursday, May 7th, is the National Day of Prayer. Let us join our prayers with Christians across this nation praying for God’s mercy for America. In recent weeks we have seen a surge in prayer as the nation has turned to the Lord in a time of crisis. We pray that as we turn our hearts in humbling and repentance to the Living God, praying for His glory to come for our nation and the nations and heal our land. We ask for the Lord to end the coronavirus plague from advancing in our nation. We ask for God’s mercy and healing presence to visit those who are sick, especially touching those in the recent outbreaks in our nation’s nursing and retirement homes. We pray for the First Nations communities that are currently experiencing a surge in cases. Lord, stretch forth Your hand to heal and comfort the First Nations in our midst. Finally, we pray for the American economy. Some states are beginning to loosen restrictions as cases in their area have slowed down. Pray for wisdom and extra grace for the leaders who are re-opening the economy. Ask for the Lord’s counsel to come into every policy meeting as leaders and businesses begin the road to recovery. We ask for the Lord to bring a divine turn-around to the economy. May all that the enemy has done to weaken the U.S. economy through the coronavirus pandemic be repaid hundred fold, resulting in a stronger, more robust economy than ever before. We thank You, Lord, for your grace and mercy for America. And we declare, the glory of the Lord will be seen over our nation, as the waters cover the sea.

Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you—the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.”

We remember fellow believers who are oppressed and tortured for Christ’s sake. In communist China, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and other parts of the word, violent radicals or oppressive communism continue to persecute and even murder Christians.
We thank God and pray for our law enforcement. We ask the Lord for their safety and guidance as the carry out their duties with integrity.
As our children return to school, we cover them in prayer. Whether they attend public school, private school, home school, or college, we pray a special anointing over them.
There is a declaration of war in our culture against the identity of our children. Our foundational values and the preservation of identity for individuals and families through Christ as the building block of society is under attack.
Pray for financial recovery from what many economists are calling a recession. We humbly pray for a healthy economy and that integrity would be restored in leadership.
