Daily Prayer During the Coronavirus Crisis

Prayer #261: For Detroit Health Care Workers

A few days ago, it was reported that 576 of the 33,000 health care workers with the Henry Ford Health Care System in Detroit are temporarily out of work after having either contracted the COVID-19 virus or having been exposed to it. Executives of the health care system there are very concerned with the resulting staff shortage since two of the system's six hospitals are more than 90% full. Presently, at least 4,141 people have been hospitalized and 855 people are in intensive care units in the state of Michigan. The positivity rate for testing is estimated to be at about 12.8%.

Pray for the city of Detroit, and in particular, workers at the Henry Ford Health Care System, where there has been an outbreak of COVID-19. Pray that this surge of the virus would subside and that the number of hospitalizations would go down.

Heb. 4:16: "Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."
