Global Call to Prayer for COVID-19
Assemblies of God General Superintendent Doug Clay is calling churches around the world to prayer at noon in each local time zone on Friday, March 20, 2020.
The health and safety of every member of our church is always our highest priority, and we want to take every responsible step to maintain a safe place to worship, fellowship, and to build our faith in the Word of God. We have been carefully tracking the Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), especially as it relates to our state, community, church and school.
We have received a State Health directive (3/17/20) to close or to limit our church gatherings to a certain number and we are taking steps to prepare to still function as a church. In the meantime, there are basic facts we need to keep in mind and practices we can personally do to protect ourselves and be socially responsible to others.

Facts About COVID-19
According to the New York Times, “Though the virus can be deadly, the vast majority of those infected so far have only mild symptoms and make full recoveries.”
The disease can be fatal in perhaps 2% of cases, with older people and people with compromised immune systems being at greater risk.
The virus does not always cause symptoms in people who have been infected, and some people can carry the virus for some time before showing symptoms. That means it will be very hard to keep people from being infected. It would be an overreaction to close our church and school until we have evidence of an outbreak of COVID-19 in our state and community, or are mandated by our government to do so for precautionary reasons.
Unfortunately, the outbreak has now reached a global stage as well as a local one, so everyone must take this situation seriously.
We absolutely care about the lives of every person in our community and want to do everything we can to ensure the best possible outcomes. We also do not want to live in fear and allow it to lead us to poor decisions.
Pray and let the peace of God guard your hearts against fear and anxiety. Ask God to fill you with His perfect love to cast out all fears.
Philippians 4:6–7 (NLT) — 6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Pray for God’s help to guide governments, agencies, institutions, families and individuals to act wisely and effectively to minimize exposure to the disease. Pray also for a divine intervention against the disease.
Stay home if you have any symptoms of respiratory illness and avoid close contact with others. Please don’t come if you have a fever or cough. If you have these symptoms, contact your health provider: fever, cough, shortness of breath.
Wash your hands frequently (although not obsessively) for at least 20 seconds, especially after shaking hands with people.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your coughs to avoid spreading the virus. Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
Minimize physical contact (hugging, handshakes, etc.) with casual acquaintances, substituting a polite nod or other gesture instead of handshakes.
Avoid contact with people who are sick. If you are needed as a caregiver to someone suffering from the disease, do not return to public activity until you are cleared by medical personnel to do so.
Psalm 91:1–3 (NKJV) — 1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.
While we have to acknowledge the facts about COVIN-19, we do have a choice to either respond in fear or faith. Let’s choose to put our trust in God who is our refuge, our fortress, and our deliverer who will deliver us from the perilous pestilence.
