Pres. Duterte Prays for Philippines’ Healing As COVID-19 Fight Continues
DUTERTE – The fight of the Philippines against COVID-19 continues and President Rodrigo Roa Duterte prayed for the nation’s healing.
It has been more than a year now since the fight against the spread of COVID-19 started. Declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) a pandemic, this disease has already cost millions of lives across the globe.
In the Philippines, community quarantine measures are still up as the fight against the pandemic continues. There is currently the rolling out of vaccines and the healthcare workers, the frontliners, are the top priority in the vaccination program.
The national government recently added the families of the healthcare workers and the outbound overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in the top priority in the vaccination. The senior citizens and those who have co-morbidities are also prioritized.
Undeniably, almost everyone is eager for the COVID-19 pandemic to be over. The situations now are under a “new normal” – students are learning through modules and online classes, there are travel restrictions, not all businesses can operate on a full capacity, etc.
Recently, Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte once again spoke about the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, in a recorded message for a prayer meeting facilitated by the Office of the Presidential Adviser for Religious Affairs (OPARA) and several religious groups, the Chief Executive urged the Filipinos to turn to God for guidance, recovery, and healing from the pandemic.
Pres. Duterte led a prayer for the healing of the Philippines from COVID-19. Based on the report, the Chief Executive asked for blessings for individuals who are at risk daily in the fight against the pandemic like the medical frontliners.
“To the Lord Almighty, we humbly seek your grace and blessing. Please heal our land from the illness caused by COVID-19. You are our only hope and strength amidst these trying times. Bless our medical frontliners and our health workers. Bless our essential workers, bless our workers in government and in the private sector who are helping our people to cope up with this crisis,” the President prayed.
