WASHINGTON, D.C. (KIDK/KIFI) - President Donald Trump declares Sunday, March 15, 2020 as a National Day of Prayer amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

"We are a Country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these...," said President Trump in a Twitter post. "No matter where you may be, I encourage you to turn towards prayer in an act of faith. Together, we will easily PREVAIL!" he continued.

The president's announcement comes after he declared a national emergency concerning the coronavirus pandemic, in addition to partnerships with several large companies in the private sector to expand testing for the illness.

The annual National Day of Prayer is scheduled for May 7.

  1. As an agnostic it would be hyper-hypocritical for ME to ‘pray’. Mind you; I don’t care at ALL if others wish to.
    As with all true faiths’ tenets it is–at the very WORST–harmlessly ineffective.
    However, along the lines of contemplation, might I suggest that perhaps it would be more productive to consider more tangible thoughts. For example; gather all your recently (panic-purchased) toilet paper into the largest room of your residence. Gather your whole family inside that room. Now; FACE your pile(s) of Charmin (et al) and chant “My God, how would our ‘society’ act in a REAL emergency???”
    THAT is food for thought, young ‘ens! 🙁
