New York Nurses on Their Knees in Hospital Praying for ‘Divine Healing’ team | 01 April 2020

Coronavirus is sweeping through nations and a third of humanity is currently in lockdown to try and flatten the curve and slow the spread of the virus.

Doctors, nurses and other medical staff are on the front line of the pandemic, treating patients with the virus and still treating others who are seriously ill and need to be in hospital at the same time.

Nurses in New York were on their knees in prayer this week as they prayed for healing and strength as they continued to work to save lives, reports Premier.

As of Monday, New York State has 1,218 deaths, with more than 66,000 cases.

Nurses prayed at work in the hospital for “divine healing” from the virus for their patients. The prayer has been videoed and posted on Twitter.

“Grant us favour as we seek your face oh God, no other face but the name of Jesus”, a nurse prayed.

She went on to pray for people who are “dying alone” because they cannot be with their families.

As of Tuesday, the United States has registered more than 189,000 cases of the coronavirus, with over 4,000 deaths.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
