Valley Fellowship united in-person to pray on Sunday, 10AM, March 15, 2020.
God is good and He is near us. Our Lord is “an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). He will not abandon us even in the face of daunting anxiety or pandemic assault. We are people of the Word and we hold to His promises. We joined the Day of Prayer knowing the Lord hears the prayers of His people.
We encourage you to use wisdom during this time. We honor community while practicing common sense. Look for helpful links on our Resources page. When I was young, my dad regularly reminded, “This too shall pass.” Though this situation is concerning, it will come to an end. Stay connected. Continue to support and pray for each other.
Exercise wise precautions. Ordinary safeguards are helpful. Stay home if you aren’t feeling well. Hand-washing and hand-sanitizers are good things. Praying and encouraging ourselves with Scripture is essential.
God isn’t pacing heaven’s throne room, wondering what to do now. Don’t allow fear to cripple you. The Lord is faithful and His promises are true. Read His Word and remind yourself of His goodness. Heavenly Father is too great and too good for us not to wait expectantly for Him (Psalm 42:5).
Patti and I are praying with you, believing that God’s wisdom will guide our decisions. We hope you worship. Thank you for standing with us as we continue to love neighbors and nations!
