Justin Bieber leans on religion during coronavirus pandemic, asks god for answers: 'We’re in this together'
"I was going to say a quick prayer, and if you guys agree with me, cool,” the 26-year-old singer said. “If you don’t, it’s also cool, you don’t have to believe anything I believe, we have far more in common than we don’t”
The Coronavirus pandemic has left the entire world shook. In these moments of panic and stress, Justin Bieber is leaning on his faith and prayers. During an Instagram Live on Thursday, he decided to end the session with a prayer.
The 26-year-old singer said, "I was going to say a quick prayer, and if you guys agree with me, cool.”
“If you don’t, it’s also cool, you don’t have to believe anything I believe, we have far more in common than we don’t.” Bieber continued: “We’re all people who are in this together and we’re all just trying to figure this whole thing out. I’m going to say a prayer for the world, and, again, this doesn’t make me any better because I’m praying, I just think prayer makes people come together."
Thanking the almighty lord, he said, "God, we thank you so much for this day. I thank you so much that you have everything in control. You know the beginning from the end and you're not surprised by this whole thing that's happening," and continued, "God, we know that these things don’t come from you, that these things are unexplainable, but God, we trust you in these times, and we just ask God that you would make this go away as soon as possible, God."
"We just thank you so much for who you are and we just ask that you would give us more answers. In your name, we pray. Amen." The singer and his wife Hailey Baldwin have left for Canada to practice self-isolation amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.
A while back, Bieber shared a clip of people playing music while under quarantine. He captioned the post, "#BeatTheVirus You may have it and not know it... Don't spread the disease. Stay home as much as you can. Do not go out in groups. No bars, no clubs, no restaurants. Wash your hands often. Keep 6 feet apart. Isolate yourself if you feel sick."
It further read, "Now is the time to engage online and not in person. It is not just about you, it is about is... All of us... Love you guys. But if you care about your parents or your grandparents or any friend who could be compromised please stay in and be safe. Thanks."
His fans also lent all their support. "This is the time to look after your family in isolation and if you are sick get a test of symptoms and try to self isolate as much as you can on your own," one posted and another wrote, "This music makes me awkwardly upset. I am sad by the outbreak and how humanity is under threat. These are serious times and we need to stand together to beat this virus! More power to doctors, police and vendors who are working every day to keep us safe."
The number of Coronavirus-infected cases seems to be increasing all across the world and citizens are being told to practice social distancing to combat the virus.
