Prayer #282: For the New Strain of COVID-19 Found in California and Colorado
The new strain of the COVID-19, which was first identified in the United Kingdom, has now been found in California and Colorado, and consequently, health experts are stressing the need for careful mitigation efforts. This new strain is believed to be up to 70% more contagious, though not more virulent or resistant to the newly-developed COVID-19 vaccines. As the new year begins, people are receiving renewed cautions to continue to wear masks indoors, or outdoors in closer-contact situations, and to follow social distancing and frequent hand-washing.
Pray that this new strain of COVID-19 could be mitigated through careful COVID protocol precautions. Pray that the vaccinations would overcome any negative effect that this more contagious strain of the virus might have on increasing the cases of COVID-19.
Prov. 3:5-6: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths."
