50 Songs to Experience God’s Presence in a Pandemic

Created in the image of God, we were made to worship Him. Our daily lives, country, and world is changing daily. Music can help us remember our unchanging God in the midst of this pandemic. Lately, one day seems like a week, and this last week has been long. In an instant, we have been reminded of the fragile state of humanity. Life is fleeting, and we have little control over our destiny, or the number of our days.

God can meet us in our fears through music, sustaining us through songs that proclaim who He is and worship that repeats the truth of His word. If we cling to those anthems and melodies in these times of great trial, we can find words to express our fears and allow our tears to fall at the healing feet of our Father, who is sovereign over all.

A Prayer for Healthcare Workers Fighting COVID-19

(Originally posted on March 23, 2020)

The reality of the worldwide pandemic, COVID-19, is starting to hit home for many individuals in the Unites States, and across the world. It’s beginning to have a spider-webbed affect on our lives as we witness our family and friends who work daily in the medical field, military, and first responders face the front lines of those affected, and infected, with COVID-19. Our faith in the providence of our purposeful God is being put to the test in this unprecedented time.

Prayer requests for the protection and safety of healthcare workers, first responders, and even grocery store workers who are connected to our daily lives are becoming more commonplace. Our prayerful response is important. The healthcare workers and first responders aren’t faceless, they are our neighbors, family, friends, parents, relatives, sons and daughters. Let’s not just say we’ll pray for them, but find a picture of their face, pray for their family and friends, and make it as personal as it truly is. We are all placed in each others lives for a reason. Reach out for prayer, send pictures of the people out the on the front line of this pandemic. Let’s look at them and urgently pray to our sovereign God on their behalf.
