“As a physician and surgeon, I have great admiration for medical professionals, scientists, and all who are working around the clock to curb the spread of COVID-19. I am also a man of faith and I know that during these challenging times, we can be strengthened and lifted as we call upon God, and his son Jesus Christ, the master healer.
“I invite you to join with me in a worldwide fast, for all whose health permits, to pray for relief from the physical, emotional and economic effects of this global pandemic.
“I invite members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints everywhere, along with our many friends, to fast and pray this Sunday, March 29. Let us unite our faith to pray for physical, spiritual and other healing throughout the entire world.
“The Lord understands the feelings you are experiencing, he loves and cares for you, as I do too.”
