On this final day of our week of focused and united prayer for the end of the Ebola crisis in West Africa, we are asking believers in Churches around the world to set aside time for prayer.
As you gather for worship:
Pray that God would intervene to end the Ebola crisis. Also, pray that those who live without knowledge of Jesus in the West Africa region impacted by Ebola would hear of Him and respond to His love for them.
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, Guinea and Sierra Leone could soar to 1.4 million cases by mid-January according to new estimates released last week by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Though this situation seems desperate and frightening, God is in control. “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:19-20 NIV) 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.
