The current pandemic has left us in a state of confusion, feeling as though there’s nowhere to turn.
Some people have resorted to religion to give them a sense of direction and support through this challenging time.
One heartwarming video has gone viral for the best reasons. Check it out for yourself.
This is the worst pandemic our world has faced in decades.
The rapid spread of the virus has caused global panic, and millions have been left living in lockdown.
72,596, to be precise.
A further 1,312,283 people are currently infected with the virus globally, and the United States currently holds the highest number.
And many have been turning to God during these difficult times.
And it has been getting many through these unimaginable times.
And even the power of prayer can make a huge difference to someone’s day…
Even if they aren’t strongly religious.
People who work for local authorities and the emergency services are putting themselves on the line every single day to assist their local communities and help those in need.
And many completely underestimate the risks that these people are putting themselves in every day.
But recently, the department came across a photograph taken in 2018 of Deputy Wedge kneeling down on one knee beside his PD vehicle.
He was praying before his shift started, asking God to keep his partner and community safe. A co-worker happened to witness this moment and moved by the deputy’s faith and dedication to his work, they decided to snap a picture and post it on Twitter.
And are especially touched after seeing it resurface during these difficult times.
“I support his right to pray if he wishes, but I also feel this post is inappropriate for a government agency to be making,” one Facebook user wrote. As you would expect to find on the internet.
Many other professions are turning to religion in this time of need…
Hospitals around the U.S. are becoming overcrowded with patients, and health care workers on the frontlines of the pandemic are working tirelessly in the battle against it.
Many health care workers have shown the world what they’re doing when they’re not working, they’re praying.
Danny Rodriguez, senior ER tech at Jackson South Medical Center, posted the photo, saying: “This is how we started our morning today. Our team said a prayer, asking God for guidance and protection while we are at work, and to keep us and our families safe.”
The video of the line of workers, with their palms outstretched toward the sky, has gone viral after being shared on Twitter.
Most are working long, grueling shifts. A photographer in Seattle captured a group of nurses from the University of Washington system taking a yoga break between drive-thru testing for the virus.
Showing how much strain they are under in their jobs, with their faces bruised and cut from long hours wearing protective clothing.
Alessia Bonari, a nurse from Tuscany, Italy, took to Instagram to voice her concern, saying: “I’m afraid to go to work, I’m afraid because the mask may not adhere well to the face, or I may have accidentally touched myself with dirty gloves, or maybe the lenses do not completely cover my eyes and something may have passed.”
Sydni Lane wrote an emotional post that went viral, saying: “I broke down and cried today. I cried of exhaustion, of defeat. Because after 4 years of being an ER nurse, I suddenly feel like I know nothing.”
Angela Gleaves said: “When you have a few extra minutes at work you take the time to go to the helipad and pray.”
Gleaves wrote: “We prayed over the staff in our unit as well as all of the hospital employees. We also prayed over the patients and their families during this trying time. We also prayed for all of our colleagues around the world taking care of patients. It felt good to do this with some of my amazing co-workers. We could feel God’s presence in the wind. Know that you are all covered in prayer.”
She was one of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center nurses in the photo.
All we can do is hope that all the health care workers stay as safe as possible until things start to get better.
