DAY 22: Monday, May 4
“…there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.” Revelation 7:9
For many of us, a typical day might start with popping out of bed, making ourselves presentable for work, a quick breakfast, getting kids to school with all supplies needed for the day. Our minds are focused on the day. However, current days are certainly not typical or routine. COVID-19 has changed how we see ourselves and the world around us.
The Bible reminds us that the world God created and loves is larger than just our corner. Revelation 7:9 speaks of a day when people from every nation, tribe and language will stand united before the throne worshipping God, as one. In God’s great love for the whole world, John 3:16 reminds us that He sent his one and only Son to save. Not just one but every nation and people.
As we pray for healing, let’s pray for more than our small corner of the world. Let’s pray for the healing of every nation, tribe and people around the world. Today, we may be separated by land and ocean but one day we’ll stand together to worship God… united, as one, worshipping our true and worthy God.
Father, Today I pray for healing in our land and of our people. Not only our land and our people, Lord, but for every nation, tribe and person across the globe. Today, I cry out for physical and spiritual healing as one of many separated by land and ocean, knowing, with full assurance and hope, that one day we’ll stand united and together to fully worship You.
“God loves human beings. God loves the world. Not an ideal human, but human beings as they are; not an ideal world, but the real world. What we find repulsive in their opposition to God, what we shrink back from with pain and hostility, namely, real human beings, the real world, this is for God the ground of unfathomable love.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
