Prayer #177: For the United Kingdom
Since the beginning of September, the United Kingdom has seen a spike in the number of daily COVID-19 cases. Presently, the number of people being hospitalized due to the virus is doubling every eight days. 4000 positive tests were recorded last week. Most of Europe is also seeing this upward trend. Leaders of the United Kingdom are considering a second lockdown, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who himself contracted and recovered from COVID-19 this past spring, stated last week that such a renewed lockdown would be disastrous for the economy.
Pray today for the United Kingdom during this renewed intensity of COVID-19 cases. Pray for the virus to subside again, and pray for the civic and health leaders there as they decide whether another lockdown will be needed.
Ps. 143:8: "Let me hear in the morning of Your steadfast love, for in You I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul."
