PRAYER: The Greatest Weapon Against COVID-19

In recent years, global disasters such as the bubonic plague, the swine flu, the ebola virus, HIV AIDS and other such plagues have affected people all around the world creating a pandemic which shook the core of many nations.

Luke 21:25, 26
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Men’s heart failing them for fear; and looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

In Luke 21:26, the Bible shares about strange occurrences and unusual phenomena coming to the earth, causing destabilizations in the earth and creating a panic that grips the hearts of individuals; causing people to give up; to become lost and confused; people’s faith in God to be shaken and the like.

The recent outbreak of the Coronavirus seeks to infiltrate the earth with a reign of terror, sickness and disease, causing worldwide panic as it wreaks havoc in the nations. This recent outbreak is an example of the release of a demonic plague from the realm of darkness which is not only afflicting people with diseases but is also causing an unprecedented number of deaths, worldwide.

Many nations have taken drastic measures to stop the spread of this virus which is consuming the lives of people every day. As each nation rushes to protect its citizens and poises itself to confront this relentless, devouring plague, many have implemented social restrictions, national mandates, medical interventions and unprecedented laws in an effort to curtail the number of growing casualties. In addition to these measures, some governments have realized that they are fighting an invisible enemy and, as a result, have turned to one of the most powerful weapon given to those who believe, which is Prayer!

Luke 10:19
Behold, I give you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

As you engage the spiritual weapon of prayer, you invite Heaven to engage in the warfare on your behalf. Your effectual fervent prayer empowers you to fight the enemy that you cannot see or cannot engage using natural means.

In Luke 10:19, Jesus says to His disciples,”Behold, I give you power, over all the powers of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you!” Your time in prayer helps you access this power to defeat every enemy in your life, in the power of Jesus’ mighty name!
PRAYER: Father, in the name of Jesus, the Christ, I prayer a prayer of divine protection over every person struggling with a spirit of fear. In Psalm 91, you said that he who dwells in the secret place of the Most High God shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I pray that you destroy the spirit of fear in every believers’ life and break them through every diabolical attack of the enemy, empowering them to walk in victory no matter what circumstances with which they are faced.
I decree and declare that in the mighty name of Jesus, that the Spirit of God would empower you to engage the weapon of prayer and defeat every demonic enemy that seeks to overtake your life.

Psalm 91
