Much to Liberals' Horror, Trump Declares Nat'l Day of Prayer as We Look 'to God for Protection & Strength'

On the same day that President Donald Trump declared coronavirus a national emergency, the commander in chief also declared a national day of prayer for this weekend.
The day of supplication will be this Sunday.
“It is my great honor to declare Sunday, March 15th as a National Day of Prayer,” Trump tweeted Friday.
“We are a Country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these.”

The move came after his declaration of coronavirus as a national emergency.
“The action I am taking will open up access to up to $50 billion of very important and a large amount of money for states and territories and localities,” Trump said.
He added that he’d partnered with private companies in order to “vastly increase and accelerate our capacity to test for the coronavirus.”
This was the big news of the day, as it rightly should have been.
However, the national day of prayer didn’t get nearly as much coverage as it should have. 
As Fox News reported, the annual National Day of Prayer is scheduled for May 7. That’s quite a ways away, particularly when you consider the fact that we’re facing a generational health crisis.
And, as Trump noted in his State of the Union speech, there’s nothing more American than humbling ourselves before the Lord.
“In America we celebrate faith. We cherish religion,” Trump said.
“We lift our voices in prayer and we raise our sights to the glory of God.” 
This sort of thing annoys some people, which is why you got more than a few responses like these which showed liberals’ horror at the idea of prayer — particularly from Trump.

However, there were a lot more messages like these:

This is why I voted for you. Thank you sir. Hope to one day get to shake your hand.

At difficult moments like these for the nation, this is the meliorative power of prayer.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God,” Philippians 4:6 says.

In trying times like these, it helps to remember that things aren’t in our hands and that we have a heavenly father to call upon for protection.
