Lord, you are the Great Physician, so we pray for healing for the victims of COVID-19. Lord, you are the Creator, with power over the creation, so we pray for COVID-19 to be destroyed. Spirit of God, you are the Comforter, so please comfort our troubled souls.
There are two words for “worship” in the New Testament. One means to bow the head, the
other is to bend the knee. You can either genuflect — that is, bow the knee — or you can bend
the head. But we are stiff-necked. We want to look up in the face of the Deity. God says, “Get
down before Me.” The very fact that we bow is a recognition that He is sovereign and that we
are to be obedient to Him. My, how this generation needs to learn that we don’t treat God as an
He “liveth to make intercession” for us (Hebrews 7:25). He says, “That is one of Mine down
there who is praying. I laid down My life for him. Father, I want You to hear and answer his
prayer.” We lose the benefit of our Intercessor when we attempt to go directly to the Lord Jesus
with our requests.
Prosperity is not
the measure of success, not before God.
Spiritual understanding is what Paul prays for, and certainly this is what we need.
