THE CORONA VIRUS


Many are in a state of panic because of what is unknown about this virus. While the unknown takes away our defenses, we are disadvantaged because we have no clue of how to protect ourselves. You cannot successfully fight a battle when you don't know who, or what is the enemy. The protocol that we have been given is wash your hands often, keep them off your face and avoid large crowds. 

While we are given conflicting information daily, we must not spend hours dwelling on what we don't know. Pick up the Bible for comforting words. God's word holds greater power than any other source. We have no truth but God's truth.  God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in times of trouble. When you believe.. you have no reason to fear. God is aware of all evil and its source. He has already defeated satan, so our defense is God's Word.

When you feel preoccupied with the thought of death, read a book, take a walk or exercise. When you operate in constant fear and panic, you lower your resistance to certain illness. Take vitamin supplements that boost the immune system, eat a healthy diet, and take plenty vitamin C.

Spend daily time in Meditation and prayer, read scripture. It brings peace, and calms to the spirit.



PRAYERS AGAINST PLAGUES


Lord God, we pray for Your protection as we begin this day. You are the hiding place, and under Your wings we can always find refuge. Protect us from trouble wherever we go and keep evil and illness far away. No matter where we are, we look to You as Protector, the One Who fights for us every day. Your love and faithfulness, along with Your goodness and mercy, surround us daily, so WE will not fear whatever might come against us.

Our trust is in You, God, and we give thanks to You for Your love and protection.



St. Michael the Archangel, 
defend us in battle. 
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. 
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, 
and do thou, 
O Prince of the heavenly hosts, 
by the power of God, 
thrust into hell Satan, 
and all the evil spirits, 
who prowl about the world, 
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

O glorious prince St. Michael, 

chief and commander of the heavenly hosts, 
guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits, 
servant in the house of the Divine King
and our admirable conductor, 
you who shine with excellence
and superhuman virtue deliver us from all evil,
who turn to you with confidence
and enable us by your gracious protection
to serve God more and more faithfully every day.



For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

IN TIMES OF TROUBLE


There are many things we seek protection from. As hard as you try to protect yourself from the evils of the world, you are never completely removed. Whatever the world sends your way, you must never lose your sense of reality. Keep your focus on Jesus Christ the true healer, then let your worries rest at the feet of God.

There is no problem too tough for God. When you mature spiritually, you awaken to the reality that fear is not productive. God rules all things, the path for your journey was written before you were born. Nothing in this world can overpower God’s plan or alter your divine path. The devil will try, folks will try, governments will try... but only “God’s will,” shall prevail.

We have nothing to fear but fear itself. Today, the schools are closed in Atlanta, a teacher in a school near me tested positive for the virus. While I was at the neighborhood Publix yesterday, many folks were wearing masks. While the medical experts say masks offer no protection, if it makes you feel comfortable and safe, that is what you should do. But the masks can hold bacteria and make you sick even if you have not been exposed.

As God’s children, living on earth.. we are vulnerable simply because we don’t know the truth. Not knowing what you fear is the worse kind of fear. My non-medical advice would be to drink plenty of water, wash your hands, drink hot liquids, and sanitize your work and home space. Bleach wipe your doorknobs, light switches, remote control, counter tops, tabletops, and cell phone. Once you do that, talk to God and place your worries in His hands, then let go.


Fear paralyzes, don’t let it stop you from living life.
