Prayer #209: For Canada During the COVID-19 Outbreak
Canada recently closed its borders with the United States to non-essential travel until further notice due to the recent increase in COVID-19 in the States. Canada itself is seeing an uptick in the virus, recording its highest daily number of cases within the last week. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated: "We have committed to keeping Canadians safe and we keep extending the border closures because the United States is not in a place where we feel comfortable reopening those borders. We see the cases in the United States and elsewhere around the world, and we need to continue to keep these border controls in place." Canada has extended its border closure a number of times since the first one in March.
Pray today for Canada as it navigates its second wave of COVID-19. Ask God to give wisdom to those in civic and public health leaders as they seek to take the necessary steps to minimize the COVID impact in this geographically large nation. Pray especially for Canada's largest cities, including Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Vancouver.
Prov. 8:10: "The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe."
