Coronavirus is a family of viruses, which may cause the common cold or more severe diseases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), and the new coronavirus disease, called COVID-19, which first appeared in late 2019 in Wuhan, China,
This deadly disease is spreading rapidly across the world and till now over 182,000 people have been infected and the death toll is over 7,100. It has been officially declared a pandemic (a disease epidemic that has spread across a large region, for instance, multiple continents or worldwide) by the World Health Organization. Many people feel powerless in the face of this pandemic. The disease seems to crop up in many more places, and it is devastating to see how this virus spreads from person to person.
As a follower of Christ, we need to turn to our Almighty God in these times of fear, despair, and hopelessness. Let us pray together to ask God to show us His abundant love, mercy, and truth in these times of distress through our redeemer Jesus Christ.
