Today, the 20th day of Adar is a special day to have our Tefillos answered.

Today is the day that "Choni Hamagel's prayers for rain were answered (Megilas Taanis): “Once most of Adar went by and it didn’t rain. They sent for Choni Hamagel. He prayed and the rains didn’t come. He drew a circle and stood in it, and said, “Master of The World, Your sons have turned to me; I swear in Your great name that I won‘t move from here until You have pity on Your sons”. The rains came down” [Taanis 23a].

The Rebbe in a Sicha (parshas Parah 5744-1984) said that the lesson of the story is that we are like a child in front of Hashem and irregardless of our station or situation  in life we can break though the heavens to receive what we need. We need that everyone should be well and no one should be affected by the virus and to bring the geula ha’amitis v’hashleima.

The greatness of this day should be utilized to its utmost to accomplish what we can to improve the present situation.
