( - On her telephone press briefing today, a reporter asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi what her “message to Americans” was now that they are dealing with the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.

“Well, I am always advocating for prayer,” Pelosi responded.


“I am a big believer in prayer,” she said, “especially as we come up on Holy Week that we will not be able to come together in this most glorious feast of my Catholic faith and the Christian world.

Pelosi said some members of the House have suggested to her that they call for a National Day of Prayer as Palm Sunday and Easter approach.

“But we can be prayerful and maybe have a National Day of Payer or something specifically to this,” she said. “Some of my members are suggesting that.”

When President Donald Trump declared a National Day of Prayer last month to pray for victims of the COVID-19 pandemic and the efforts underway to combat that epidemic, Rep. Rashida Tlaib retweeted a tweet by liberal activist David Hogg that said: “F**k a National day of prayer.”
