Here is the text of the Day 2 prayer point / update from the #PraytoendEbola campaign
Today is DAY TWO of #praytoendebola, a full week of focused prayer. Please pray today individually, with a friend, in groups, as families, and as an entire Church:
Pray that God would intervene to end the Ebola crisis. Also, pray that courageous health workers who risk their lives to care for Ebola victims would be protected.
The World Health Organization reports more than 6,500 cases and more than 3,100 confirmed deaths due to Ebola since the outbreak in early 2014.
It is time to pray! God has promised that he will hear us. “Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.” (Psalm 107:28) Please share this prayer effort with your church members and fellow believers.
Please share this and pray!
As a wonderful testimony to answered prayer (and MUCH hard work by doctors and leaders…!) Nigeria has been declared “Ebola Free” all the known contacts of the 21 Ebola cases in Nigeria have been released from surveillance following the end of their incubation periods. At one time there were 600+ people under surveillance. NONE of them developed Ebola. So both Senegal and Nigeria are without any Ebola cases!!
Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Keep praying!
