Apparently, the Police Officers of the Municipality of Binalonan knelt and prayed for the country, as well as some local government personnel and staff. Kimberly added that this was done “to heal as one nation regarding this pandemic that we’re facing.”
According to her, Pastor Roberto Geron headed the initiative. She also commended the members of the church who participated in the event.
Then she urged, “I hope and pray that you guys can help me spread this good news. So that we can reach other Municipalities and Provinces to have a unity to act and heal as one nation.”
Kimberly also wrote her salute and respect for the men in uniforms. And she ended her post with hashtags “#WeHealasOneAct” and “#LORDHealOurNation.”
Moreover, a lot of fellow Filipino countrymen expressed their support for such a Godly response.
Cleofe Jacob-Martinez commented, “O what a beautiful sight in the eyes of God when people humble themselves and ask Him for forgiveness, mercy, and protection.”
As of August 24, the Philippines has already almost 200,000 positive cases of COVID-19, according to Wikipedia. Of these, the highest counted is from the country’s capital, Metro Manila, with more than 100,000 cases; 132,000 recovered and 3,010 succumbed to the virus.
Let’s continue to contend in prayer for God’s protection and healing to the Philippines, and to every nation in the whole world. May this Coronavirus pandemic soon end in Jesus’ Name!
