Sign a Letter to God, Praying for Him to End to the COVID-19 Pandemic
People all over the world are invited to sign a letter to God, praying for Him to end the COVID-19 pandemic. The letter recognizes God’s dominion over us human beings and our world and prays that He ends the COVID-19 Pandemic. The symbolic letter is unique because it enables people of all faiths to join a universal submission to God, collectively express their faith in His compassion toward humanity, and share a hope that He will answer our prayers.
The letter is at https://www.change.org/DearGod-COVID19 on Change.org, the world’s largest petition platform with more than 450 million people from 196 countries. The letter is NOT a petition, but a supplication, in which signatories humbly submit to God, and pray that He ends the COVID-19 pandemic. The letter is in the six United Nations official languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Spanish, and Russian), and Portuguese. People are kindly requested to sign the letter, encourage their friends to do the same, and share it with their networks.
The COVID-19 letter to God was prepared by Katim S. Touray, Ph.D. a soil scientist and international development consultant.
ABOUT COVID-19 PANDEMIC
On November 26, 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) named a newly identified variant of the COVID-19 virus as Omicron, and designated it as a variant of Concern. One month later, the Omicron variant quickly spread from 7 to 115 countries. Clearly, the huge global response to the COVID-19 pandemic in terms of public health policies (shutdowns, lockdowns, quarantines, and vaccines) has not been enough to stop the virus.
As a result, many people around the world are turning to religion to cope with the pandemic. In the same vein, inter-faith initiatives have been launched at the global and national levels to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic is raging at a time when 4.32 billion people (59.5 percent of the global population) are on the Internet; 92.6 percent of them using mobile devices. The Internet thus provides a global platform to bring people of varied faiths together to express, through this letter, their sentiments about the COVID-19 pandemic, and pray to God for its end.
