Revivalist: How You Can Pray Victoriously Through the COVID-19 Crisis

by | Apr 3, 2020 | Women

Multiple faith leaders have reminded us that, as believers, the current crisis should not surprise us. Yet many still ask why this plague has occurred.

“All we have to do is read Matthew 24, and we find out that Jesus told us there would be plagues, there would be pestilences,” revivalist, prayer leader and author Kathy Bichsel says on The Kathy Bichsel Podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. “But He told us that there would be trials and there would be tribulations in the world, but to be of good cheer, because He has overcome.” She shares a biblical prayer of hope and encouragement.

“As a rule of life, when I awaken in the morning, I have this prayer … based out of Isaiah Chapter 50. And I believe it was … referring to how the Son of God lived when He was here on the earth,” Bichsel explains. “He said that the Lord would give us the tongue of the learned, that morning by morning, He awakens me to give me the tongue of the learned so that I might speak a word in season to Him that is weary.

“And the other morning, I awakened with this beckoning of the Lord to look at Him. And I woke up, and I heard, ‘Look to Me, look to Me’—but not in the sense of looking to Him for help as much as looking at Him to look at Him. ‘I see your failings; I see where you fail, where you miss it where you fall, but I want you to look at Me.’

“And it just sent me down this venue of study that just brought to light some things that I think are so important for this season, especially because we right now have such a focus on praying through this season we find ourselves in as a nation. … Truly, in times of chaos and insecurity, it is knowing that we can come into the presence of an eternal God [who] is really an anchor of hope for us in any challenging time, not to mention the onslaught of a pandemic.”
