My Morning Do . . . Pray for President Trump

~~ by tkbrown

3 October 2020 — As we all probably know by now, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were diagnosed as having Coronavirus early yesterday morning. He has now admitted himself to Walter Reed Medical Center for treatment and monitoring. Now, several of his chief support staff and friends have tested positive for the virus. My prayers are with President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, Vice-President Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, and all close associates–those who have tested positive for Covid-19 and those who have not. My prayers are also with Democratic Presidential Nominee and Former Vice-President, Joe Biden and his wife Jill. I ask that all who believe in the power of prayer and faith join me in prayer for these and for our country.

The myriad reactions in the press to the virus finally reaching the White House has left me slack-jawed! I cannot believe the amount of negativity surrounding this development. When we focus so strongly on what is wrong, are we not increasing the likelihood of further testing by the powers that be? I pray our country can move past the negativity shown across the nation in recent months. If we want healing, our focus must move to those things that are right with an intentional movement to build upon them.

Every family goes through times when it seems everything goes wrong. Right now, our nation is in one of those times. When your family is surrounded by unpleasantness, do you contribute to it by ranting, raving, and assaulting one another? Or do you try to heal the problems . Every person in this nation has a right to his or her beliefs from one side of the political spectrum to the other. I respect this right in others even when I strongly disagree with the belief itself. I do not try to force anyone to believe as I believe or to act as I act. Right now, there is a strong push for everyone to move to the left. Be careful what you wish for! You just might get it!

I believe family is a gift from God and should be treated as such. I love writing with a broad array of intent and purpose. I have written poetry virtually all my life, and much nonfiction in academia. My expanded efforts in all areas have finally taken off in retirement. I have much to accomplish now that I have the time. Other hobbies are painting, researching ancestry and myriad topics for my writing, knitting, crocheting, cooking -- always trying new recipes and always cooking for my health. I have many other hobbies, but these seem to dominate most of my time. Oh, did I mention I am the mother of three grown children and grandmother of seven. I have been blessed immensely and am the happier for it.


  1. Beautiful sentiments here without takig sides which is so hard to do at an unprecidented time in our history! You inspired a short post I think I’ll put out next wed. I personally don’t want to sway too much too the right.. that scars me. No matter, I do appreciate your sentiments and positive outlook we need more than ever before! ❤️ Cindy

    1. Thank You! I agree with what you say! I am an independent; so, I don’t go very far to either side, and I see the value in both views, so long as we don’t go to the extreme with it. It is not mine, however, to point fingers at those who do lean far right or far left. I don’t know what put them there. I have not lived life in their shoes, so I cannot point fingers. I do not, however, condone harming self or others or the property of self or others. There is no call for violence in our personal views. Thank You for the comments! 😊💖

  2. God is almighty. He knows exactly what every human being is missing. Praying means giving strength. To be generous means to be able to share with others. I want to share with those who need it, who feel oppressed, who are left alone with their illness because the system has failed. No one should be persecuted because of their nationality, skin color or religion. That is what I pray for, because this is done by bad people.

    All the best!
