I pray for the health and healing of you. May God heal any sickness you have physical, mental or spiritual. May he give you health, energy and joy today. Swipe for my full message 🙏🏼❤️. Molitva sa Ostroga: Da bismo dobili nešto što nikada nismo imali, moramo učiniti nešto što nikada nismo učinili. Kada nam Bog uzima nešto što ne možemo shvatiti, on nas ne kažnjava, već nam otvara ruke da primimo nešto još bolje. Božja Volja nas nikada neće odvesti negde gde nas Božja Milost neće zaštiti. Bože, uđi u moju kuću i oduzmi sve moje brige i bolesti, leči i bdij nadamnom i mojom porodicom, u božje ime. Amin 🙏🏼❤
He posted a photo of himself along with his family with a caption:
“I pray for the health and healing of you. May God heal any sickness you have physical, mental or spiritual. May he give you health, energy and joy today.”
Attached alongside the photo, was his long and open letter to the public advising people to stay indoors.

He also ended his note with a little positivity saying that the tough times would pass and that everyone will bounce back even stronger.
“We are all one. We all live in the same world. Please treat people and nature like you would treat yourself. God bless you all. We will be stronger and more united, I am sure.”
