Last night it was announced on the News that the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has now been declared a Pandemic.
I am asking everyone to pray for those who are infected and sick, including now the famous, and greatly respected star, Tom Hanks and his wife, who now put a human face on this virus. Now everyone knows of someone who has it. Pray for all the overworked medical staff, who are struggling to cope in some countries where this has hit the hospital systems like a tsunami. The keep turning up for work every day in spite of the risk to themselves of contracting the disease. The Media is full of complaints about travel restricitions, in spite of the FACT that these are being put in place to PROTECT people and halt the spread of this deadly virus. So today I am putting up prayers and readings for the sick, pray along with me for them, start with those in your own family, then the local community, then the country and then the world, because the Coronavirus is now in just about every country. In many countries schools and community/public gatherings have been stopped, television programs are being recorded without studio audiences present, and even the NBA has stopped when a player was diagnosed with the virus, this is having a huge impact worldwide. Pray!!
