The National Day of Prayer is celebrated on the first Thursday in May to pray for the nation as a whole and during these uncertain times, prayers are needed now more than ever.
This year prayer service comes amid an ongoing pandemic of the novel coronavirus that has as of May 7th resulted in the death of more than 75,000 Americans and 1.25 million confirmed cases. The remarks focused on offering prayers to the victims who passed away tragically from the coronavirus, their families, and our health care heroes on the frontlines daily fighting against this terrible disease.
Melania delivered the introductory prayer offering sympathy to the family of those who lost someone to the coronavirus.
“Let us pray for the ill, the ones who are suffering, and those who are serving on the front lines,” Melania said in the Rose Garden of the White House. “When evil darkens our world, give us light. When despair numbs our souls, give us hope. When we stumble and fall, lift us up. When doubts assail us, give us faith.”
She added, “when nothing seems sure, give us trust. When ideas fade, give us vision. When we lose our way, be our guide that we may find serenity in your presence and purpose in doing your will. Amen.”
Earlier, the First Lady shared a video message asking all Americans to “unite and pray to protect and give strength” to frontline workers and “to comfort those who have lost loved ones.”
“All through history, Americans have unified in challenging moments, and in our greatest times of need, we always turn to prayer,” Melania said. “Today, I want to ask all of you to unite and pray to protect and give strength to those who are serving on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, and to comfort those who have lost loved ones.”
“Our dear citizens, through prayer and faith, we will get through this together. I am so proud of the way all of you have responded to this crisis,” she continued. “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.”
After Melania spoke, President Trump called on all Americans to continue to pray for those who passed away, frontline workers, healthcare workers and first responders “waging war against the invisible enemy,” as well as for scientists to find a vaccine soon.
“On this National Day of Prayer, America is engaged in a fierce battle against a very terrible disease,” Trump said. “I ask all Americans to join their voices and their hearts in a spiritual union as we ask our Lord in Heaven for strength and solace, for courage and comfort, for hope and healing, for recovery and for renewal.”
“In recent days and weeks, our country has endured a grave hardship. We pray for every family stricken with grief and devastated with a tragic loss. We pray for the doctors, the nurses, and first responders waging war against the invisible enemy. We pray for the scientists and researchers, who pioneer treatments, that they find therapies and vaccines and that they find them soon. We pray for the frontline workers keeping our nation fed, nourished, and safe and secure. May God watch over them all,” the president continued.
President Trump quoted Scripture, Zephaniah 3:17 before honoring welcomed guests of many faiths that included a nurse from North Carolina who also is a Pastor, Brittany Akinsola, who volunteered to work in the intensive care unit for weeks at the Samaritan’s Purse field hospital in Central Park and Sister Debbie Marriott Harrison, Mario Salerno, a Brooklyn landlord who waived all 200 of his tenants’ April rent, Sister Anida Martinez, an Indian Priest Pujari Harish Brahmbhatt, U.S. Army Chaplain Ibraheem A. Raheem Bishop Dwight Green, Rabbi Ariel Sadwin, and White House Spiritual Advisor Pastor Paula White.
“As Scripture assures us, ‘The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save.’ I think it’s so true,” Trump said. “I think it’s so true. We are being reminded once again that God has blessed our land with heroes of faith.”
Christians, Jews, Hindus, Muslims, and Mormons Clergy members all shared prayers from their respective faith. The service concluded with a stirring rendition of “God Bless America” performed by Maryland’s Spirit of Faith Christian Center Choir.
