Corona Virus & Songbirds of Hope


Singing the Songs of Hope Over the Nations

2020 Word: Back in January, the Word of Lord for 2020 was about God saying it is our choice how to respond to our challenges and circumstances—that we get to choose the fate and destiny of our planet! Will we choose to live in hope and declare the future of our cities and nations, or will we choose to live in fear and misery?

The Lord says there are 3 waves of challenge right now:

1. The Virus

2. The Economy

3. The Election

He is giving us a key to address these challenges:

2 Chronicles 20:20-22

20 Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in His prophets and you will be successful.” 21 After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of His holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the Lord, for His love endures forever.”

22As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated where the war was coming.

In this passage, there was a war breaking out, and the defeat came through trusting the Lord and singing praises to Him. The Lord says this is the time for us to do the same thing – the world will enter into worship together and magnify Him over the fear of the coronavirus.


The start of this prophetic fulfillment is the worship of Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes. There are other worship leaders who are being called to sing the songs of Hope over the nations. The worship leaders of the world are to unite and empower people’s hearts to magnify the Lord and be Songbirds, rather than succumb to fear and have their teeth set on edge.

This is our invitation – our time to invite Him into our nations and places that are currently magnifying fear. Kingdom worship leaders will proclaim His face and His ways, and people will see the truth of this redeemed state for their nation… the restoration of all things. They will proclaim it through song! These proclamations will have a corresponding effect where blind eyes will be healed and miracles of God will abound.


The Lord said there is to be a strong, joyful gathering of all the worship leaders around the world, and we are all to be a part of it. The Lord showed me the scene shifting from nation to nation with each one singing their part and declaring it out over their nation and the world. People are going to be singing this declarative song - families will do it, businesses will do it, churches are doing it, others will do it, and they will all add to the worship and the song.

The Lord showed me that every voice matters to Him, just like the story of the Who’s in Whoville – even the littlest voice among them made a difference when joined with all the others. This is us as we sing and declare the promises of the Scriptures over our world.


The Lord says that this is the time for everyone to join in worship together and proclaim out Psalm 67 and Psalm 21. This is the time for us to dance and celebrate the goodness of God, and declare the original design of the planet and of this year 2020. This is the time for us to declare and proclaim over all the nations of the earth the promises of the Lord.

PSALM 67 - It’s Time to Praise Him - The Passion Translation (TPT)

67 For the Pure and Shining One A poetic song of praise for guitar

1 God, keep us near your mercy-fountain and bless us! And when you look down on us, may your face beam with joy![a] Pause in his presence 2 Send us out all over the world so that everyone everywhere will discover your ways and know who you are and see your power to save. 3 Let all the nations burst forth with praise; let everyone everywhere love and enjoy you! 4 Then how glad the nations will be when you are their King. They will sing, they will shout, for you give true justice to the people. Yes! You, Lord, are the shepherd of the nations! Pause in his presence 5 No wonder the peoples praise you! Let all the people praise you more![b] 6 The harvest of the earth is here! God, the very God we worship, keeps us satisfied at his banquet of blessings. 7 And the blessings keep coming! Then all the ends of the earth will give him the honor he deserves and be in awe of him.

Psalm 21 - Through Your Strength - The Passion Translation (TPT)

21 For the end time, to the Pure and Shining One King David’s poem of praise

1 Lord, because of your strength the king is strong. Look how he rejoices in you![a] He bursts out with a joyful song because of your victory! 2 For you have given him his heart’s desire, anything and everything he asks for. You haven’t withheld a thing from your betrothed one. Pause in his presence 3 Rich blessings overflow with every encounter with you, and you placed a royal crown of gold upon his head. 4 He wanted resurrection—you have given it to him and more! The days of his blessing stretch on one after another, forever! 5 You have honored him and made him famous. Glory garments are upon him, and you surround him with splendor and majesty. 6 Your victory heaps blessing after blessing upon him. What joy and bliss he tastes, rejoicing before your face! 7 For the king trusts endlessly in you, and he will never stumble, never fall. Your forever-love never fails and holds him firm. 8 Your almighty hands have captured your foes. You uncovered all who hate you and you seized them. 9–10 When you appear before them, unveiling the radiance of your face, they will be consumed by the fierce fire of your presence. Flames will swallow them up. They and their descendants will be destroyed by an unrelenting fire. 11 We will watch them fail, for these are ones who plan their evil schemes against the Lord. 12 They will turn and run at the sight of your judgment-arrow aimed straight at their hearts. 13 Rise up and put your might on display! By your strength we will sing and praise your glorious power!
