Guided Prayer using the acrostic “CROWN.”
(Corona – means “Crown” in Latin.)
C – Christ is in Control
I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True… on his head are many crowns… He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God… On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords. - Revelation 19:11-16
Pray: Thank God for his sovereignty. Pray for leaders, responders, those traveling, and the sick.
R – Respond in Faith (not fear)
"Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.” - Luke 8:25
Pray: Ask God to help you respond in faith and courage and not to worry or be controlled by fear.
O – Opportunities Abound
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. - Galatians 6:10
Pray: Ask God to help you make the most of this opportunity, to serve others, and to share the Gospel
W – Walk Wisely
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. - Ephesians 5:16-17
Pray: Ask God to help us to be wise, vigilant, and care like Christ.
N – Nothing Can Separate Us from Christ
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose… Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship… No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 8:28, 37-38
Pray: Pray for those who are self isolating that they will be reminded that nothing can separate them from God’s love.
The Corona Virus (COVID-19) will come and go …
Christ is in control, he is king of all, he wears many crowns. He wore a special crown of thorns for you. He loves you. He died suffered and died for you. He conquered death. He is the great Physician. He can help you with your physical, mental and spiritual infirmities. He has special crowns awaiting for those who are faithful.
