On Thursday, the National Day of Prayer, First Lady Melania Trump sent a special message to the nation through this time of healing from the coronavirus pandemic. Her message is below:
“On this year’s National Day of Prayer, we are confronted with the challenges of an invisible enemy — one that can only be defeated through unity and our nation’s strength, love, and devotion to each other. All through history, Americans have unified in challenging moments, and though our greatest times of need, we always turn to prayer.
Today, I want to ask all of you to unite and pray to protect and give strength to those who are serving on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic and provide comfort to those who have lost loved ones.
In these uncertain times I know it is hard not to gather in your places of worship, but we must keep our faith in God and pray for the courage and knowledge that better days are ahead of us. We will soon return to work and send our children back to school again. We will return to our places of worship, reunite with loved ones, attend sporting events, and gather with friends to share some laughter.
Our dear citizens: through prayer and faith, we will get through this together. I am so proud of how all of you have responded to this crisis. When we reach out to our Lord, let us remember, ‘I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.’ God bless you all and God bless the United States of America.”
