“Though he slay me, yet will I trust in Him.” – Job 13:15
At the moment I am writing this article, over 22,000 Americans have died of coronavirus. Death is not far from us. Nobody is immune to death and death terrifies us. When facing death, we tend to pray to God, “Please save us from death.” But Job had a strong faith in God. No matter whether he would live or die, he said that he would put his trust in God. Even if God may kill him, he said that it would be ok with him. Job was not a fair weather friend to God. His faith in God was so strong that he was free from fear of death. His unconditional faith in God gave him peace of mind that the world could not give.
Today’s prayer for scientists and researchers: Dear Lord, we are fighting an invisible, microscopic virus. This virus does not go away just because we pray. But prayer gives us wisdom and courage to do our best under the circumstances. God has blessed us with scientists, researchers, pharmacologists, biochemists, and doctors to fight this disease. We pray that they will find a vaccine and medicine to cure the coronavirus soon. Help us to be united as a human race against this deadly disease. We pray that something good will come out of this bad situation. Amen.
