US President Donald Trump has declared Sunday, March 15, 2020, as a ‘National Day of Prayer’ to seek God’s face and strength in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The POTUS encouraged all citizens of the United States to pray, believing that the nation and by extension, the world, would overcome the ravaging COVID-19.
He said, “It is my great honour to declare Sunday, March 15th as a National Day of Prayer. We are a country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these.
“No matter where you may be, I encourage you to turn towards prayer in an act of faith. Together, we will easily prevail.”
The 73-year-old president also said he had taken a Coronavirus test and that results were expected in a day or two.
Fifty-one Americans have died from the novel coronavirus, according to a tally by John Hopkins University, as the pandemic has claimed more than 5,700 lives in some 137 countries.
