Prayer #184: For the Significant Increase of COVID-19 in Some States

As we move into fall, the COVID-19 virus continues to abate in some U.S. states, while others are seeing an increase, possibly representing a renewed outbreak in this season. Graphs of COVID-19 cases in each state can be obtained by googling "COVID-19 in USA Status." Below is the list of states seeing a clear or possible rise in Coronavirus:

Alaska (possibly rising)
Arkansas (rising)
Colorado (rising)
Idaho (rising)
Indiana (possibly rising)
Iowa (possibly rising)
Kansas (rising)
Kentucky (rising)
Maine (possibly rising)
Michigan (possibly rising)
Minnesota (rising)
Missouri (rising)
Montana (rising)
Nebraska (possibly rising)
North Dakota (rising)
Oklahoma (rising)
Oregon (rising)
Rhode Island (possibly rising)
South Carolina (rising)
South Dakota (rising)
Utah (rising)
West Virginia (rising)
Wisconsin (rising)
Wyoming (rising)

In addition to the above states, there are some states where, though the curve is not rising, it is not yet falling, with daily COVID-19 cases still in the thousands. These include Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

Pray for these states where the COVID-19 virus is either rising or maintaining at an elevated level. Pray for the Coronavirus to begin to subside very soon in these states. Pray for wisdom for the governors of these states, and the state health officials there as they make decisions concerning the prevention of transmission of the disease, and pray for caution amongst the population.
