Scott Morrison prays for nation in Christian video


Scott Morrison has revealed he is praying for the state and territory leaders during the coronavirus pandemic, describing the crisis as a time of “great need and suffering” in an online video.

In a clip published on the Eternity News website, but later removed, the Australian prime minister offers a prayer for his fellow national cabinet members to stay “strong and united”, and says he is taking the best advice to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Mr Morrison, an evangelical Christian who attends the Horizon Church in his local Shire electorate, says in the message his faith gives him “enormous encouragement” in how to respond to the global pandemic.

“I pray that we will be a restorer of streets, with people in them, businesses open again, Australians going about their lives again, returning to their jobs, returning to their livelihoods, returning to normal times in our schools so children can learn and that we can get to the other side of this,” Mr Morrison said in the video, which appeared to be filmed in his parliamentary office.
