This is a video by Sid Roth. He is talking about prayer and the Coronavirus. It is about 30 minutes long, but well worth the time. It is both sobering and encouraging.
There is a National Day of Prayer tomorrow,
March 15th, here in the USA.

I posted this about two years ago. The man speaking in the clip below is Yuri Bezmenov, a former KGB spy who defected to the West during the Cold War. He gave a series of talks at that time about Communism coming to America and other Western countries. He also wrote several books. It seems his message was not widely accepted, however.
But in today's world what he says sounds ripped from the headlines,
doesn't it? He actually uses the term
Social Justice Warriors.
The presentation referenced here is available on You Tube. It is engrossing and well worth the listen. I've posted just the last 4 minutes.
To me, it's the key to everything.
If you've heard this name before you could be a spy story enthusiast, old enough to remember the Cold War, or left the KGB in disgust many years ago. I am two of those things, but I won't tell you which two!
In a series of videos, footage from a presentation in 1983 on Canadian television, Yuri Bezmenov talks about ideological subversion, specifically, how to do it. It's a little eerie, I have to warn you. If you are interested, he is all over the Internet and you can find the whole presentation everywhere.
This is my favorite part. Just when you suspect all hope is lost. Just when you want to run and hide, he says this... Oh, my God.
In case you can't hear the video, this is what he said:
Yuri Bezmenov on How to Prevent Ideological Subversion
...that takes one step, one very important thing to do. You don't have to expel all the KGB agents from Washington DC. The most difficult and at the same time the simplest answer to the subversion is to start it here and even before, by bringing back the society to religion, something that you cannot touch and eat and put on yourself. But something that rules society and makes it move and preserve it. A Soviet scientist, Shafarevich, who has nothing to do with religion, he is a computer scientist, did a very intensive research the on the history of Socialist countries. He calls Socialist or Communist any country with the centralized economy and the pyramidal style of power structure and he discovered, actually he didn't discover, he just brought to attention of his readers.
That civilizations like Mohenjo-daro in the River Indus area, like Egypt, like Maya, Incas, like Babylonian culture, collapsed and disappeared from the surface of Earth the moment they lost religion. As simple as that. They disintegrated. Nobody remembers about them anymore. Well, just a few.
So, the ideas are moving society and keeping mankind as society of human beings, intelligent, moral agents of God. The facts, the truth, the exact knowledge may not. All the sophisticated technology and computers will not prevent society from disintegrating and eventually dying out. Have you ever met a person who would sacrifice his life, freedom for the truth like that? (writes 2x2=4 on board) This is truth. I never met the person who said, "This is truth and I am ready to... shoot me!" to defend the truth. Right?
But millions sacrifice their life, freedom, comfort, everything for things like God, like Jesus Christ. It's an honor!
Some martyrs in the Soviet concentration camp died and they died in peace unlike those who shouted, "Long live Stalin!" knowing perfectly well that he may not live long.
Something which is not material moves society and helps it to survive, and the other way around, the moment we turn into 2 by 2 is 4 and make it the guiding principle of our life, our existence, we die. Even though this is true (points to 2x2=4) and this we cannot prove (points to God and J.C.) We can only feel and have faith in it.
So the answer to ideological subversion, strangely enough, is very simple. You don't have to shoot people. You don't have to aim missiles and Pershings and cruise missiles at Andropov's headquarters. You simply have to have faith and prevent subversion. In other words, not to be a victim of subversion.
Don't try to be a person who in Judo is trying to smash your enemy and being caught by your hand. Don't strike like that. Strike with power of your spirit and moral superiority. If you don't have that power, it's high time to develop it, and that's the only answer.
