There is a Race
MCF USA is breaking from our customary monthly prayer requests to encourage our MCF Extended Family and Friends to join together in prayer for one another around the world.
Mully Children’s Family Mission Choir
This African gospel song composed by Joseph Madziyire and sung by the Mully Children’s Family Mission Choir speaks of “a race we must run” and “victories to be won.” With all the uncertainties created by the world’s Corona Virus Pandemic, there are races which must be run and victories to be won: from the race for scientists to find a cure for Covid-19, to economic and world government leaders mapping out strategies for the recovery of the world economy. The song goes on to say that “each of us have races that we must run.” Perhaps for you it is getting through the loss of your job or caring for a friend or family member who has been infected or died from the virus; or it’s growing anxiety over what comes after the virus. Whatever your personal race, the song is crying out to God for “the power every hour to be true.”
Kindly join us in praying for God to grant families all around the world the power to run the race and to be victorious over Covid-19 and all the trials and hardships associated with it, so that God may be given all the glory!
1 Corinthians 9:24 -25 NIV
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.”
