Prayer #191: For the President and First Lady As They Quarantine with COVID-19
For months now, President Trump and First Lady Trump have been tested each day for COVID-19. Early this morning, they both tested positive for the virus. They are now in quarantine. A White House aide, Hope Hicks, has also tested positive.
President Trump joins a growing list of at least seven world leaders who have been infected by COVID-19. These include 55-year-old Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 65-year-old Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, 51-year-old Honduras President Juan Orlando Hernandez, 64-year-old Guatemala President Alejandro Giammattei, 53-year-old interim Bolivia President Jeanine Anez, and 53-year-old President-Elect of the Dominican Republic, Luis Abinader.
At age 74, President Trump is in the high-risk category for COVID-19 complications. President Trump's personal physician, Dr. Sean P. Conley, stated in a memo today that both he and the White House medical team will "maintain a vigilant watch" over the president. The president, who is asymptomatic at this point, is continuing to carry out his duties during the quarantine.
Pray for President Trump and First Lady Trump as they remain in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19. Pray that no symptoms or complications would develop and the President's affairs of state could continue to be attended to without interruption. Pray for God's protection for White House personnel and staff.
Ps. 46:1: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
