On his social media accounts, Church President Russell M. Nelson shares his deep gratitude to all who participated in the recent fasts for global relief from the effects of COVID-19. Many participants joined in the petition to God regardless of belief or faith tradition. President Nelson also shared that brighter days are ahead, emphasizing that this is made possible through the Master Healer, Jesus Christ.
I wish to express my deep gratitude to all who participated in the recent fasts—both on Good Friday, April 10, and on Sunday, March 29—as we joined together to petition our Heavenly Father for relief from the effects of COVID-19. I was humbled to learn of friends from many faiths all over the world who joined with us to appeal for relief.
Fasting reminds me of the supreme sacrifice that our Savior, Jesus Christ, made for each of us. As we look forward to a recovery from this worldwide pandemic, I pray that we will find a stronger relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ. He is our Master Healer. He will heal our broken hearts. He will bestow upon us personal peace and comfort.
Thanks to Jesus Christ, no condition is hopeless. Thanks to Him, brighter days are ahead, both here and hereafter.
