Day 31

East Timor, Southeast Asia

Though the Prime Minister had tendered his resignation after failing to pass the budget several times, he withdrew his resignation to help lead the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

As this mostly Catholic nation recently celebrated Easter, we stand with them and declare that Jesus is THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE over East Timor.

May this truth become a fresh revelation for East Timorese. We declare that traditional and nominal religious following must be shaken off, and speak a coming to life of real and loving relationship with the Savior Jesus (The Bible, John 11:25).

The Gambia, West Africa

Both Gambia and Senegal have increasing numbers of confirmed cases of COVID-19 virus.

The fight against the spread of the virus has centered on the 749 kilometer border between the two nations.

Father, we cry out for African nations, who have so many vulnerable people. We declare over Gambia today that God is the SOURCE OF ETERNAL SALVATION.

We desire that many more Gambians would come to Jesus and find eternal salvation, so we speak that over this nation.

We declare that hearts and minds will be open to encountering the power of Jesus to save (The Bible, Hebrews 5:9).

Gaza Strip, Middle East

The Gaza Strip has no more coronavirus test kits, amid fears of disaster if the illness spreads in the blockaded, densely packed enclave.

Shortage of critical equipment and medical supplies could set off a rapid spread amongst the enclave’s two million people.

As the central laboratory has stopped, after coronavirus test kits completely ran out and fear and anxiety are abounding, we cry out to the Lord for His mighty hand to help us.

Lord we declare that You are EL OKHLAH, the consuming fire, and can put away the our deadly sins and the pestilence.

As Gaza people have endured many wars and crises, we plead for Your blazing intervention to eradicate the deadly enemy (The Bible, Deuteronomy 4:24).

West Bank, Middle East

Palestinian clowns painted their faces and donned wigs, red noses and one new gimmick - surgical masks - to entertain children in West Bank amidst a coronavirus lockdown.

Dozens of smiling children, some holding balloon animals, lined up along the street and peered down from balconies in Hebron's Old City to take in the clowns' tricks and pranks. In the face of potential COVID-19 outbreak in the West Bank, Israel is obliged to take measures to save lives, permitting the entry of medical equipment and supplies to meet patients’ needs.

We pray for the terrified children who are frustrated and fearful. We declare that You are EL RACHAMIM, The God full of mercy, and pray for the families and children in West Bank to receive Your love and forgiveness (The Bible, Deuteronomy 4:31).
