I have said it in the past, and let me paraphrase it again.
God speaks to us through the scriptures in a very timely manner.
A day ago, I read the Bible passage in Philippians 4:6.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
I felt like I had to pray for something or someone. At that time, I had not any clue. Yet, I always believe in the power and importance of praying for one another.
Earlier today, I opened a Bible passage in Joshua 1:9.
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
At that point, I asked myself: “What is God trying to tell me? Why these Bible passages?”
The words keep repeating in my head. “Do not be anxious… be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened. Do not be dismayed. God is with you wherever you go.”
And so, like any other day, while taking my breakfast, I opened my device—this time my iPad to check on some current events.
Watching the video, I realized what the message was. I had to pray for our fellow brothers and sisters in Canada who believe in Jesus Christ (the Christians in Alberta, Canada): https://www.trunews.com/stream/covid-crackdown-rcmp-rings-gracelife-church-with-fencing-and-armed-thugs.

I admit that I find it a bit disturbing when churches are closed while malls packed with people are kept open.
Perhaps, the world does not believe any longer in the soul. Feeding the soul is no longer essential.
Is this what you believe in as well? What man the words: “man does not leave by bread alone.”
Does it ring a bell?
I really don’t know what the future holds, yet I know who holds the future.
Therefore, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let us present our requests to God, knowing that He is with us wherever we go.
