Good News from the Coronavirus taskforce!
“The Trump Administration is leading an ‘all-of-America’ approach, as Vice President Mike Pence calls it, to protect Americans during the global Coronavirus outbreak. Led by Vice President Pence, the task force convened by praying about this issue facing our nation. That is Godly leadership!
“‘Last week, at this table, the President met with pharmaceutical leaders, we met with nursing home leaders, leaders of commercial labs, airline industries,’ Vice President Pence said. ‘We’re bringing all of the businesses of the country to bear to protect the health of the American people.’
“‘I’m pleased to report…that [many] insurance companies have agreed to waive all copays on coronavirus testing and extend coverage for coronavirus treatment in all of their benefit plans,’ the Vice President said.
“Medicare and Medicaid announced recently that beneficiaries will have Coronavirus testing and treatment covered. Now, private insurers have made that commitment, as well.
“Insurers also agreed to cover tele-medicine services, which will allow all patients—particularly among the vulnerable senior population—to be treated without feeling the need to go to a hospital or doctor’s office.
“After sitting down with insurance leaders at the White House, the President traveled to Capitol Hill that afternoon, where he and Vice President Pence met with lawmakers. ‘We just had a meeting on stimulus, and you’ll be hearing about it soon. But it was a great meeting,’ President Trump said.
“He also had one important message for Americans during this time: We’re prepared.
“‘Everybody has to be vigilant and has to be careful. But be calm,’ the President said. Thanks to early preventative measures by the Administration, as well as the strong fundamentals in our economy and job market, America is in great shape to weather any storm.” (One Voice Prayer Movement Team)
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” (Philippians 4:6; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- We do not look first to government for our salvation or protection. We look first to God. However, we do want to thank the Lord for a government that is making positive steps to help our citizens in this time of crisis.
- Look through the article above and thank the Lord specifically for those things the government has done. Pray over each of those measures to be put in place smoothly and without delay.
- Pray for our senators and congressmen to support the executive branch’s plans and efforts. We need unity!
- Keep praying for Vice President Mike Pence and the coronavirus taskforce as they seek solutions for our nation on this issue.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we are thankful for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence’s efforts to get ahead of the Coronavirus that’s hit America. Many people, including many Christians, are fearful and our government’s leaders work on this will be helpful. People need to see that our leaders are working to help protect both our health and our families’ financial well-being. Thank you for the leaders of pharmaceutical companies, nursing homes, laboratories, airlines, etc., agreeing to do what they can to help limit the spread of the virus and hold costs to reasonable levels. Thank you that the insurance companies agreed to waive copays and some other deductibles, so people will seek medical care. Also, that they will allow, even encourage the use of tele-medcine services for those worried about going to doctors’ offices, where they may encounter the virus.
Now, Lord, we need to see both branches of Congress work with the executive branch to ensure these agreements are carried out. We decree that the politicization of this epidemic is wicked and evil and hurts p[eople. Both sides must work together to put reasonable measures in place quickly. This will help quell the fears, especially of those that don’t know Jesus. Drop Your strategies into the hearts and minds of Vice President Pence and the rest of the Task Force until things are stable again. Thank You, Jesus, amen.
We are thankful for Godly governmental leadership in America!
