Rev. Newton GabbidonRev. Newton GabbidonThe coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is significantly impacting our world, and the continually changing situation has made this an unusually challenging time for everyone — a time that, for many, is filled with fear and uncertainty. Because of the way things have accelerated with the virus, governments worldwide have taken extraordinary steps to contain the spread of this highly infectious disease for which there remains no proven treatment.

Here in the United States, these steps include bans on public gatherings, social distancing, and other restrictions mandated by the federal and state governments based on strict guidelines provided by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) to limit exposure to the virus.  Once regarded as the epicenter of the Pandemic here in the United States, New York State has banned all public gatherings, mandated schools, businesses, and persons, except for those employed in areas of essential services to close.

Like many other churches and Christian organizations here in New York and across the nation, facing these draconian restrictions, we at IPMI have seen our lives disrupted by this Pandemic.  Please know, however, that while following these strict CDC guidelines to help protect ourselves and communities, you can count on IPMI doing what is right to mobilize united prayer for the United States and other nations facing significant challenges due to the Pandemic.

One of the ways we seek to do this during the ban on gatherings here in New York is through technology like IPMI TV and other platforms like Zoom to host global prayer meetings for nations in crisis during the Pandemic. So for upcoming prayer meetings and events, including the monthly global prayer calls, please continue to visit us here, online.
