Prayer #164: For Mexico During COVID-19
Mexico is eighth in the world of nations that have the most recorded COVID-19 cases---610,957---but alarmingly, it has by far the highest mortality rate from the virus, 10.8% currently. The country with the highest mortality rate after that is Iran, with 5.8%. The United States is 9th on the Coronavirus mortality list, at 3.0%. Mexico also has a disproportionately high number of younger people dying from the pandemic, as opposed to other countries. The U.S. State Department and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has thus issued travel warnings for those considering a visit to this country. "COVID-19 risk in Mexico is high," the CDC has recently stated. "CDC recommends travelers avoid all nonessential international travel to Mexico."
Pray for the nation of Mexico during this time of high fatalities due to COVID-19. Pray for wisdom for health officials and medical personnel there as they are working to combat the virus effectively. Pray for the safety of the Mexican citizens and that they would follow safety precautions to prevent COVID infections. Pray for the fatality rate in Mexico especially, but in all countries across the globe, to drastically plummet.
Ps. 34:18: "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted, and saves the crushed in spirit."
