I don’t usually ask other people to pray on my behalf, but I am getting anxious about some people during the COVID-19 pandemic. I am worried about my brother and his wife, who are both doctors in New York City, which is badly affected by the virus, and also my fiancé, who is a police officer in the UK, where it is getting steadily worse. All three of these people have to continue to go to work and come into contact with people (so do I: I am a social worker in San Francisco, where most people are sheltering-in-place). Doctors are at high risk of infection and have a high mortality rate. If the British government introduces tougher measures in the coming days, as seems likely, the police will be on the front line in terms of enforcement.
Thank you. I am sure that your prayers will help me to feel less anxious.
