President Russell M. Nelson Invites All to Join in Fast for Relief from COVID-19

As a physician and
surgeon, I have great admiration for
medical professionals, scientists, and all who are
working around the clock to curb the spread of COVID-19. I am also a man of
faith, and I know that during these
challenging times, we can be strengthened
and lifted as we call upon God and His Son,
Jesus Christ the Master Healer. I invite you to join with me in
a worldwide fast for all whose health permits to pray for relief
from the physical, emotional, and economic effects of
this global pandemic. I invite members of The Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints everywhere, along with
our many friends, to fast and pray this Sunday, March 29. Let us unite our faith to
plead for physical, spiritual, and other healing
throughout the entire world. The Lord understands the
feelings you are experiencing. He loves and cares
for you, as I do, too.

  1. I'm 6 months pregnant and can't fast at this time, but I will sacrifice screen time instead and pray constantly with the rest of the world. Please pray that they will be able to find some kind of cure/treatment that will help heal so we can get back to work without fear!

  2. I prayed harder than I have in a while and ended up here, listening to this message. I know I won't be free from all challenges and obstacles, but I know that if I keep my compass on "true north" and do my best, everything will be ok. Thank you for this message. I don't do well physically without food but will do my best and will focus, ponder and pray at that time.

  3. For those who would like to come with us in fasting for the world next Sunday and would like to know how to do it. It's simple: you start your fast with a prayer, you can say in your personal prayer what you would like (for good) and then when you finish it, say it in the name of Jesus Christ, amem. So you will be without water or drink for 24 hours (if you are able to do it) and when it finished you end your fast with a prayer, personal prayer and say in the name of Jesus Christ, amem.
    Remember that! Heavenly Father loves each of us and see our sacrifice, so if you feel that you can't do it because of healthy, don't worry you can support this cause doing your own prayer for the world. Also, as most of you can be your first time when you feel that's enough you can end your fasting with a prayer. Heavenly Father loves you and look after you! Always remember that!

  12. I don't know about you guys but I'm so excited for Sunday. To be doing this all together here on Earth. It's the coming together part that's going to be so beautiful.

  13. If your health doesn't permit you to fast but you want to participate in some way you can fast from something you normally do every day – like staying off social media, for example. God appreciates every effort we can give. I believe in President Nelson's words and will be offering my prayers and adding my fasting contribution this Sunday.

  21. Thank you for all you do. I hope you are safe and healthy along with everyone else in the world. Keep it up!

  22. I love the energy that radiates and the peace and hope that his words transmit. For me he is the best leader that the church could have at this time. Who could be a better leader than a former physician and surgeon to guide us from science and spirituality during these times of health crisis? I'm an inactive member but my faith revives every time i listen to his words and speeches. I'm joining the fast and praying this Sunday for sure!

  23. Why do they call it herd amunnity

    When god treats people like
    a loving father treats his children

  25. There are only a few things we can do here that are perfect. Pray sincerely and observe the fast with pure intent.

  26. We will embrace fasting and prayer to follow Prophetic counsel with faith that it can be done! My husband is a Firefighter and is attending many medical calls daily for COVID-19. He holds onto faith that he will be protected to do his job as long as possible for as long as Heavenly Father needs him to do so. Thank you for this comfort.

  27. This message brings so much peace, President Nelson! Thank you for bringing peace into our hearts when there is so much chaos doing the opposite! Love you!!

  31. How can there be 88 dislikes for this video? It is a grievous shame and a sign of disrespect for anyone to show some level of disdain and disregard for a physician and highly renowned surgeon as well as the prophet of God to receive such a negative response to his counsel! I highly recommend that before you rate this video, especially with a dislike, that you do some really serious soul searching and resolve to be better and to do better in your own life.

  32. Amado Profeta, haremos el ayuno.
    Ojalá algún día pueda tocar su mano.
    Le amamos mucho y oramos cada día por usted. Perú-trujillo
