Prayer #13: For the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as He Battles the Coronavirus
The highest-profile political figure to have contracted the Coronavirus is British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The 55-year-old leader is presently in intensive care at St. Thomas' Hospital in London after experiencing persistent symptoms that have worsened. He has been put on oxygen but has not needed a ventilator at this point. His condition is considered quite serious.
Pray for Prime Minister Johnson as he is now in a critical phase of this sickness. Pray for his body and immune system to continue to be sufficiently strong to fight off the virus. Pray for great wisdom and skill for all who are treating him. Pray also for wisdom for the government of the U.K., since unlike the United States, there is no formal line of succession should the Prime Minister become incapacitated or pass away. Pray too that the Lord would work greatly in Prime Minister Johnson's heart during this personal crisis.
Ps. 34:4, 6 "I sought the Lord, and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. . . . This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles."
