Prayer #213: For New York State's Increase in COVID-19 Hospitalizations
New York State, for the first time in four months, has more than 1,000 people hospitalized with serious cases of the COVID-19 virus. This past Thursday, the state recorded 1,023 patients hospitalized for the Coronavirus, the highest since June 22. New Y0rk State's COVID hospitalizations peaked in April with an astronomically high 18,000. After that, the number steadily decreased through August but then began to climb again, with 410 COVID hospital patients on September 5 and 710 on October 5. Close to half of the hospitalized patients recorded over the last two weeks were in the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens and the upstate counties of Orange and Rockland, plus New York State counties along the Pennsylvania border.
Pray for New York State during this renewed outbreak of COVID-19. Pray for wisdom for Governor Cuomo and state health officials as they seek to combat this spike in the virus. Especially pray for the Lord to protect and heal those who are presently hospitalized with severe cases of the Coronavirus. Pray for this surge of the virus to rapidly decrease.
Ps. 115:1: "Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to Your name give glory, for the sake of Your steadfast love and Your faithfulness."
