“V3 Building The Next Generation”
One Year Later, “How God has kept me” Isaiah 41:10 KJV

March Prayer Request Scenario:
This month March marks one year later, when the entire Nation and world was under attack from the Coronavirus COVID-19, and the pandemic began. There was much fear and uncertainty about this Plague, so many died and yet even much more survived. Schools were closed, hospital at capacity, Churches closed their doors. Households under quarantine, not able to touch or to hold each other. What was really going on? One year later this month we reflect on how God kept me through it all.
Identify prayer targets/focus, the things that should be strategically prayed for:
- Pray that God will continue to keep me
- Pray that the pandemic has a complete and perfect end.
- Pray that the church continues to meet the needs of all people outside the walls of the church.
- Pray that the church Reset and Rise up and take it’s rightful place in the earth
Reference Scriptures as foundation for prayer:
9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
I Corinthians 10:13
13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
II Timothy 1:7
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy.” Psa. 103:2-
