Day Of United Prayer And Fasting For Metro Chattanooga Set For April 17

Thursday, April 9, 2020
Several dozen churches and ministries, in partnership with the Chattanooga House of Prayer, are organizing a Day of United Prayer and Fasting for Metro Chattanooga on Friday, April 17. 
 
Residents are encouraged to participate in prayer and fasting (if they are medically able) and use the following prayer themes: 
 
1.  Pray for the people of God and everyone else in the Scenic City, to humbly turn back to the One, True and Almighty God in repentance, prayer and love. 
2.  Pray for the end of Covid-19 nationwide.
3.  Pray for the Church to serve this city as needed in this hour in such a way that brings glory to God. 
4.  Ask God to protect our city and our people from physical and economic harm (make us like Goshen). 
5.  Pray that we would, as a city, learn and grow from this experience and come out better from it.

Steve Ellison: Right Over These Stones

Plague, pestilence, misfortune, epidemics, pandemics, and contagions of all kinds have been part of the human existence since Genesis 3 and they always will be, at least until Christ returns. Many people observe these and see signs indicating that the return of Christ is near. That is not true. Rather, these things are reminders of the sinful, fallen state of mankind. These things ...

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty weary of all the non-stop, 24/7 COVID-19 virus reporting and commentary. Yes, it’s a serious issue. And yes, we all need to take necessary precautions.

The Court Of Public Opinion Has Ruled - And Response

Since the court of public opinion has already judged the officer in Minneapolis, the city should save money and not even have a trial.

Roy Exum: My Garden This June

On this, the first day of a new month, I pause during my monthly trip to the garden as I mourn for my country. The protests that morphed into ugly, race-fueled riots are worse than the COVID virus that continues to plague our nation. By this I mean we were helpless to the virus – there was no way to stop it and therefore we must endure. Criminal rioting is altogether different. ... (click for more)
