Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
During the current global situation in response to COVID-19, it can be easy for fear to take root. As Jesus followers, though we take wise precautions and listen to healthcare and government officials, we don’t stop living out Christ’s love in our communities.
Scripture instructs us to worry about nothing, but rather, by prayer and petition, to make our requests known to God; then, the peace of God will guard our hearts and minds (Phil. 4:6-7).
In the meantime, OM’s global leadership team has acted, considering global advice from the World Health Organisation and other global advisories:
Obviously, some of these restrictions disrupt regular ministry activities, however, out of love for our neighbours and the communities we serve, we want to foster the safest possible environment we can.
As we live in these unprecedented times, let's remember that our hope is in Christ, that God's everlasting love and peace is with us. Even now, God is in control.
Will you join with us as we pray for Canada and the Nations for God's guidance and wisdom? March 26th is a day OM is setting aside for prayer and fasting.
We are truly grateful for partners like you for your continued support as we carry on sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations, even during uncertain times like these.
