Yesterday, during his press conference on the coronavirus, President Trump announced that in addition to declaring a national emergency, he would make Sunday, March 15th, a “National Day of Prayer.” Trump called on Americans to pray for everyone during this serious health crisis.
President Trump also tweeted about the National Day of Prayer:
It is my great honor to declare Sunday, March 15th, as a National Day of Prayer. We are a Country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these…No matter where you may be, I encourage you to turn towards prayer in an act of faith. Together, we will easily PREVAIL!
During President Trump’s press conference today, on COVID-19, Dr. Ben Carson spoke briefly about the importance of turning to God and prayer. The brilliant pediatric neurosurgeon turned HUD director, spoke about the president’s decision to make Sunday a National Day of Prayer.
“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,” Dr. Carson told the members of the media. “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. 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,” the humble world-class neurosurgeon said as he quietly exited from the podium.

The media and leftists immediately responded to Dr. Ben Carson’s plea for turning to God and pray by bullying and mocking him for coughing into his hand while speaking, and for daring to bring up God and praying during his comments.
Bloomberg reporter Steven Dennis ignored Carson’s call to prayer, and instead mocked him for coughing into his hand.

Tiffany Cross, a resident fellow at Harvard at the Institute of Politics, tweeted to Dr. Carson, telling him not to talk about God, saying, “You did NOT make us feel better. Let ME worry about my prayers.” she told him.
Oh. My. God. Ben Carson- THIS is your wheelhouse. Please talk about the science of all this. You did NOT make us feel better. Let ME worry about my prayers. Gah.
