At a press briefing on Saturday, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson emphasized the importance of prayer amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“I hope that we as a nation can use this as an opportunity to pull together for good,” Dr. Carson said during a Coronavirus Task Force briefing on Saturday.
“President Trump is going to be recommending a National Day of Prayer. And you know, we’ve gotten away from prayer and faith a lot in this country,” Carson said, according to The Christian Post.
But “There’s nothing wrong with godly principles, no matter what your faith is: loving your neighbor, caring about the people around you, developing your God-given talents to the utmost, so you become valuable to the people around you,” he continued.
“Having values and principles that guide your life. Those are things that made America zoom to the top of the world in record time — and those are the things that will keep us there too,” Dr. Carson concluded.
Also at the briefing, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams encouraged the media to “lean into and prioritize the health and safety of the American people.”
He urged, “No more bickering, no more partisanship, no more criticism or finger-pointing; they’ll be plenty of time for that. But we all need to hit the reset button and lean forward, the health and safety of the American people are top priority.”. . .
