The first time I heard someone call upon God to save the world from covid-19 , I looked at the person and my thought was, come on, it hasn’t gotten to that! Do not take the name of the Lord in vain.
I said this because I trusted it had not gone beyond man to provide solutions. After all it just arrived.
Well, now I pray more than anyone else.
I pray because Science has no cure yet.
Science has been trying it’s best to keep us safe and make life better but Science knows only what it knows – Science is only aware of what it has been able to discover in our vast universe.
What to discover about our universe is infinite and science has been able to disclose a number out of infinity of the discoverables. So, it’s clear that the World can’t enthrust its life a hundred percent in the hands of Science.
Covid-19 for now remains a mystery. It’s a mystery because we’re yet to solve the puzzle surrounding it.
We only know about the protective measures and not the cure. The vaccines are being tried in animals and yet to be tried with human.
It means that Science is trying hard but the solution is yet to come.
Our world needs our prayers for that which is more than the cricket has moved into its dwelling.
Now schools are closed down in most effected areas, public areas are restricted, bans have been placed upon certain countries entering another – there are reinforcements of the national and State boundaries against immigrants.
Listen now to the cry of the dying around the world and tell me if they have not been taking precautions since the first person got infected.
People live their lives in fear and are doing all they can to stay safe. Yet, it’s like wildfire spreading far and wide.
Do we stay calm since Science is doing all in its power to solve the puzzle?
Yes we should.
No need to panic. Panic is more dangerous than the virus.
We should always stay calm and take necessary precaustions.
One more thing, we shouldn’t look at another person’s corpse as a log of wood. We should feel what is happening around the world and we shouldn’t crack jokes with it- I understand joking about something is a way of taking it lightly but don’t. Don’t make jokes with it.
Covid-19 might appear less fatal than past epidemics but as long as life is being lost, we should not joke about it even as we try to remain calm and take precautions, we should pray in our little way for its cure.
Let’s pray for our world.
Let’s join hands and call on God – The Creator of this Universe to provide the cure to this pandemic disease, covid-19.
I know it will pass just like the past epidemics. It will pass.
May the eyes of science be opened to the solution.

Back in 2013, my love for teaching young learners propelled me into picking teaching as a career. I taught English, Maths and Science in the United Arab Emirates where I lived for ten years. Right now, I live in Coal City, a beautiful hilly area of my country Nigeria.
