Prayer #223: For North Dakota's New Outbreak of COVID-19
Geographically, North Dakota is one of our more isolated states. Nevertheless, it is currently experiencing a surge in COVID-19 that began to build gradually in August and gained speed in September and October. This is really the state's first wave of the virus since there were very few cases statewide in the spring through mid-summer. As of yesterday, the state reported 8,440 active cases, the highest number thus far. The state's positivity rate currently stands at 12.62%. There have been, overall, about 46,000 cases of COVID-19 in North Dakota, and 540 deaths.
Pray for the state of North Dakota during this outbreak of COVID-19. Pray for God to protect those who are at a higher risk and that this trend of COVID cases would soon be reversed. And pray for wisdom for health officials, local civic leaders, and Governor Doug Burgum as they take steps to combat this rise in the virus.
Is. 26:4: "Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.'"
