|Day 1 Prayer to End EbolaDear Friend,
Thank you for answering the call to prayer for the end of the Ebola crisis in West Africa.
We are grateful for compassionate friends like you who are joining together for seven days, September 29 through October 5, and crying out to God for the African countries ravaged by Ebola.
Today is DAY ONE 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 victims of the Ebola virus who are sick and dying will have access to the treatment they need.
Since the outbreak began in early 2014, more than 6,500 cases of Ebola have been confirmed. More than 3,100 people have died, and the crisis continues. Infections from the Ebola epidemic in Liberia and Sierra Leone could soar to 1.4 million cases by mid-January according to new estimates released last week by the World Health Organization.
Though this situation seems desperate and frightening, God is in control. “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1) We can trust Him to intervene with loving care. Please share this entire prayer effort with your church members and fellow believers by every means possible.
