Unite in Faith on Good Friday

For the second time in as many weeks, Latter-day Saints and all others are being called to join in a worldwide fast.

“During times of deep distress, as when illness reaches pandemic proportions, the most natural thing for us to do is to call upon our Heavenly Father and His Son—the Master Healer—to show forth Their marvelous power to bless the people of the earth. …

“As part of our April 2020 general conference, I am calling for another worldwide fast. For all whose health may permit, let us fast, pray, and unite our faith once again. Let us prayerfully plead for relief from this global pandemic.

“I invite all, including those not of our faith, to fast and pray on Good Friday, April 10, that the present pandemic may be controlled, caregivers protected, the economy strengthened, and life normalized. …

“Good Friday would be the perfect day to have our Heavenly Father and His Son hear us!” —President Russell M. Nelson

On Saturday evening, President Nelson taught that a customary fast is two meals, or a period of 24 hours. ” But you decide what would constitute a sacrifice for you, as you remember the supreme sacrifice the Savior made for you,” he said. “Let us unite in pleading for healing throughout the world.”
