It’s emphasized that frequent washing of hands will bolster our protection.
A friend said that while she does so, she makes the Lord’s prayer her focus and reflection.
“Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name,” begins the prayer.
“Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven”–there’s no virus there.
Then, the prayer continues regarding daily bread and our sins that He’d forgive. It includes forgiving others, guarding against temptation, and being delivered from the evil of the world in which we live.
“For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.”
It doesn’t take too long to say this prayer with every hand-washing endeavor.
If rushed for time, even a portion of the Lord’s prayer can be one’s thought.
As you wash your hands, think of His peace and use the prayer that Jesus taught.
