Prayer #276: For Vitamin D and Fighting COVID-19
Dozens of recent studies have indicated that having adequate Vitamin D levels in the body is an excellent way to prevent infection from the COVID-19 virus, and even to fight off the virus if contracted. Doctors and hospitals in many places are using Vitamin D as a treatment for the disease. The vitamin, which is available at drug stores and health food stores, is inexpensive. Vitamin D is absorbed from sunlight via the cholesterol in skin cells, but for those who are in the sunless, and for everyone in the winter months, levels of the vitamin can become depleted. Levels of 2000 IU per day are needed for most healthy adults. The COVID studies are showing that people with low vitamin D levels have a greater tendency toward fatality from the virus. Some of these studies have revealed that nine out of ten deaths from COVID-19 could have been prevented if Vitamin D levels had been adequate.
Pray today for wisdom on the part of physicians and hospitals regarding the use of Vitamin D for treating COVID-19. Pray that this vitamin could be effective in preventing infections from the virus, especially in high-risk people with respiratory, cardiovascular, and diabetic conditions.
