    11 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

    2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

    3 Give us day by day our daily bread.

    4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

    5 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves;

    6 For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him?

    7 And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.

    8 I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.

    9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

    10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

    Luke 11:1-10

    Pray for Donald Trump and his loved ones.

    Pray for them to be healed in the name of Jesus of Nazareth.

    Jesus the Christ the only begotten Son of God said:

    5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

    6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

    Matthew 6:5-6

    It's more serious than they are letting on since the White House has a fully equipped medical facility.

    Trump looks honestly upset . The problem with a really excellent liar is that you have to just assume they’re always lying.

    Invite all current Canadian employees to come to your city hall at 4pm on October 09 2020 to make a request for a monthly distribution of 500 Canadian dollars. The country’s money is also ours. Many in-service employees’ monthly income is less than 1,800 after tax deduction. After deducting transportation expenses, it is better for people who stay at home and sleep because they are at risk of the epidemic. This is very unfair. Please tell everyone that people who are able to come out and organize. In Canada, the government will pay attention to troubles only

    With such quick, premium antibody treatment he should be fine in about 9 days. He will be fine. It is what it is. And he will survive.
