In South Korea there has been an outbreak of a virus, called MERS [Middle East Respiratory Syndrome]. It is deadly in a few cases, and it spreads quickly because of the difficulty here in pinpointing and quarantining infectious diseases.
Our church just canceled all meetings beside Sunday services and we are all wearing masks in our office. We want to exercise wisdom and best practice. This is a good opportunity to exercise our faith because we are trusting in God ultimately to shield us from disease but we are also trusting in God by not being afraid to appear cautious and take the necessary steps to protect ourselves and our neighbors in reflection of the gravity of the situation.
Would you please join us in praying for the government? It is difficult not to feel helpless and then to have to appear in control in the face of a situation like this. Pray that we all humble ourselves to the situation.
Please pray for the end of the outbreak, that the Lord would take away this disease and that no more would die.
Please pray that His will be done, and that we exalt His Name in all circumstances!
Thank you so much for all the prayers!
