Brazil's President Calls for National Day of Prayer and Fasting to 'Free Brazil from This Evil' Coronavirus

The president of Brazil called for a national day of prayer and fasting this past Sunday to “free Brazil from this evil” coronavirus pandemic

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro asked for the national day of prayer and fasting after a group of evangelical Christians made the request, CBN News reports. “With the pastors and religious leaders, we will call for a day of fasting by Brazilians so that Brazil can free itself from this evil as soon as possible,” Bolsonaro said to a radio station, Jovem Pan. According to Reuters, polls have shown that Brazilians largely disapprove of Bolsonaro for downplaying the coronavirus outbreak.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
