Pray for these states---for each governor, for the mayors of the larger cities, and for the public health officials in them. Each state has or is preparing to take some kind of action. Pray that these leaders would humble themselves and seek God for the wisdom they need during these trying days and months. Pray for God to watch over the most vulnerable in these states. Pray for hospitals in these states, some of which are near or at capacity.

Eph. 3:20-21: "Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."
