President Trump reminded the entire country that throughout our history, the United States has looked to God for strength and protection in times like these.

Franklin Graham said this:

I am personally thankful to President Trump for recognizing the power of prayer and showing faith in the Lord to intervene on our behalf. With so much uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus around the world, people are afraid. Now is the time for Christians to be strong and courageous, knowing that Almighty God is with us. As His Word instructs, we are to cast our cares upon Him, because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7).
We need to pray for those who are sick and their families, for those who are living in fear and anxiousness, for the professionals who are providing medical care, for those working on treatments and a vaccine for COVID-19, and for our leaders to act with wisdom and courage as they make vital decisions that impact each of our lives. Please also lift up the President and our nation’s coronavirus task force headed by Vice President Mike Pence in prayer as they work closely and diligently with the myriad of issues related to this pandemic.

Some churches are not meeting in person for worship this Sunday to avoid possibly spreading the virus. But that doesn’t prevent us, as the Body of Christ, from coming before the Lord, kneeling in prayer, and pouring our hearts out to Him.
“Let us, therefore, come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16, NKJV).

Thank you for joining in prayer with Christians across our nation, that God will forgive our sins and heal our land in our time of need.
