The organization Women for America First is organizing a nationwide candlelit prayer for President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump on Saturday evening as they battle the coronavirus.

The prayer will take place Saturday, October 3, at 8:45 p.m. Eastern.

“We’re asking people to come together with your family, friends, your Women for Trump groups, Latinos for Trump, whatever group you want, and bring candles and gather together and pray,” said organizer Amy Kremer, chairwoman of Women for America First told SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Saturday.

“This President rallies for us all the time and I want him to know we are rallying out here for him today,” Kremer added.

Kremer said people participating should livestream their vigil or take pictures and post it on social media with the hashtags #Prayfor45 or #PrayforTrump.

“You can do it in your driveway, you can do it at your neighborhood clubhouse…whatever city or town that you’re in, you can do it for five minutes…or just do it by yourself and just pray for the president,” Kremer said.

“Put it on social media so the president knows we’re out here doing this for him,” she added.

An event page on Facebook gave the following description:

Find a location (even if your driveway or your porch)
 Gather friends, family or any group of ppl together
 Lite candles
 Sing Amazing Grace
 Sing God Bless America
 Stream live / take  so POTUS knows we are rallying for him
He rallies for us, now we will rally for him!

The candlelit vigil is one of the ways people are showing their support as the president and first lady recover.

According to video and tweets, there is also a pro-Trump group at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, where the president is receiving treatment.

He is being attended by his personal physician, Cmdr. Sean Conley, MD, and a team of physicians.

Conley said Saturday morning that Trump is doing “extremely well.”
