Iowa Governor Declares Thursday a ‘Day of Prayer’ for Coronavirus Pandemic

DES MOINES, Iowa — The governor of Iowa has declared Thursday a Day of Prayer in the state, as she called upon residents to take time to pray for those affected by the novel coronavirus and that God would use the people to serve others in a time of need.

Gov. Kim Reynolds announced the proclamation on Wednesday, as well the 59th Annual Iowa Prayer Breakfast, which aired entirely online this year and featured various remoted speakers, including a message from Jim Garlow of Skyline Church of La Mesa, California.

“The power of prayer and faith in God is something that has guided so many of us in good times and bad,” she said in a statement.

“We have all been impacted by COVID-19. Some of us have lost a loved one and others know those who are sick. Whether you are a nurse on the front lines of fighting the pandemic, a grocery store worker at the register, or the truck driver delivering a shipment, or someone laid off at home, this has been a challenging and stressful time. Let us join together and pray for our neighbors, communities and state.”

The governor spoke to the public this morning and thanked the prayer breakfast committee for finding a way to continue the event this year, outlining that for more than 50 years, the breakfast has been “glorifying Jesus Christ through the public affirmation of His sovereignty over our state and our nation.” She also pointed to Isaiah 41:10 as her source of comfort in the midst of hardship: “Fear thou not, for I am with thee. Be not dismayed, for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee, yea, I will help thee. Yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” […]

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
