What Should We Make of This Picture?

Mike Pence’s Coronavirus Task Force praying in the White House

So what she would we make of this?

  1. Prayer is a natural response to this pandemic.  We need more of it.
  2. Thoughts and prayers are not enough.  Pence and his team need to do something to stop the spread. I am glad to see Anthony Fauci is in the room.
  3. I have no problem with these men and women praying.  But why was it necessary to take a picture?  And why was it necessary to distribute it?  I am sure this photo will help the Trump-Pence campaign appeal to evangelical voters.
  4. If prayer happens and no one notices it, is it still a prayer?  This might be an interesting question for the members of the Trump administration and the court evangelicals who like to pray publicly for the POTUS. (Mt 6:6)
