Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!”
(Matthew 26:41 NLT)

There are innumerable viruses capable of causing illness to the human body. Our body’s immune system is constantly killing viruses and diseases every minute of every day. The secret to prevent illness is to keep the body’s immune system strong. The Bible says that the church is the body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:27) Similarly, there are innumerable viral spirits of error and deception that come to tempt the sinful nature of each church member in order to sew seeds of hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition and division all of which create an atmosphere for spiritual illness to develop within the body of Christ. Dedication to prayer acts to strengthen the spiritual immune system of the church to keep these viral outbreaks in check. Watch and pray to keep sickness away!
