In 1 Samuel 7, we see Israel once again repenting of idolatry and they find themselves needing God to deliver the nation from the Philistines. When they come to Samuel, Samuel tells them to gather together at Mizpah and he will pray to the Lord for them. Today, American need to repent and seek God to deliver our nation from a viral pandemic. The question is, who will stand up and gather God’s people together and pray to the Lord for us. I will.
Just as Israel needed someone to intercede on their behalf, we too need someone who will stand in the gap and intercede for us. This is why we ask people to pray for us. This is why we are spending 52 days praying state by state for revival and healing.
It’s easy in a pandemic to get so focus on the national and world-wide crisis that we forget there are the everyday problems and issues that people need us to pray for too. Maybe you know someone who is experiencing a financial crisis because they are out of work. Maybe you know someone with a loved one who won’t live through tonight because of the virus. Maybe you know someone who is struggling in their marriage and with the added crisis of COVID-19 and being quarantined together is only straining the relationship even more. Maybe we need wisdom for a decision that could affect not only our lives, but the lives of our family. Maybe you know someone who needs you to intercede for them to be able to kick an addiction. Maybe you know someone who is being abused, neglected, or abandoned. Maybe you know someone who is brokenhearted over a wayward child. Maybe in the midst of this pandemic you’re struggling with your faith and wondering where God is.
Whatever life might throw at us, how much would it help knowing that there are prayer warriors who will relentlessly stand in the gap to pray just for us? My friend, we are here to pray for you.
What if you were the prayer warrior that someone else might need? It’s easy to pray for the people we know and the struggles they face, but is our heart in tune with God so that as we pass someone at the store or in the park or at the office from another department would we hear God’s whisper that prompts us to pray for that person we don’t know? We don’t have to know their circumstances. God already knows. But when God prompts us to pray for someone, we should stop and take the time to do so, praying that God’s will would be done and that His power and glory would be manifested in the situation they are experiencing.
Would you commit to praying for even just one person that you know that is experiencing a crisis or difficult time right now? Would you be a “Samuel” for that person? We may need to practice social distancing and keep six feet apart, but for every person you see today would you pray for them? Pray for God to keep them healthy and to not get the virus or if there is even one small molecule of the virus in their body that God would heal it immediately. Pray that they would humble themselves, pray, and seek the face of God. Pray that they would repent and turn their heart toward God.

God, thank you for the privilege of praying for one another. Thank you for being a loving God who is concerned about every aspect of our lives and each and every minute detail of every day. Father, there are 496,000 people in America who have this chronovirus and many more around the world. I ask you now in the name of Jesus to bring healing to each and every one. Lord, we ask that you would forgive this nation for turning its back on you. Send your Holy Spirit and rise up your Church. Sweep across our nation and revive our hearts. Lord, save us from this virus. Wipe it clear off the face of the earth and make your glory known. For those who are grieving over the loss of a loved one, we ask that you wrap your arms of love around them and comfort them. As we go through our day today, whisper to us as we come in contact with people who need prayer so that we can stand in the gap for them.
The prayer guide is available for free download to individuals and churches and may be reproduced in any quantity both printed and electronically through websites, email, social media, apps, or any other method.

Memorize and hide in your heart one memory verse each week in 2020. If you didn’t start the challenge at the beginning of the year, just jump in now and be sure to sign up to get our weekly Memory verse in your email so you don’t miss a week.
In 2020 our emphasis is on revival for America with three key words: revive, renew, and redeem. You will begin to see the elements of our website and posts reflect this emphasis. We hope you’ll join us in praying for God to pour out the Holy Spirit with a mighty rushing wind of revival for our nation and around the world.
Our key verse for revival is 2 Chronicles 7:14. “If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. For the past few weeks, we have been focusing on repentance. This week, we look at the spiritual transformation that takes place when we surrender our heart to God.
This week’s memory verse:
“In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did whatever he wanted.”
