Trump urges nation to pray to God for ‘protection and strength’

President Trump urged Americans Friday to pray to God this weekend for protection “in times like these.”

The president’s request came hours after he declared a national emergency to combat the coronavirus outbreak that has killed at least 41 Americans.

“It is my great honor to declare Sunday, March 15th as a National Day of Prayer,” Mr. Trump tweeted. “We are a Country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these.”

He said, “No matter where you may be, I encourage you to turn towards prayer in an act of faith. Together, we will easily PREVAIL!”
