Prayer #288: For the Deployment of the National Guard in NC for COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution
North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced on Tuesday that he is mobilizing the NC National Guard to help in the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines in this state. This is in response to the fact that North Carolina is presently ranking among the worst states in effectively getting the vaccines distributed. "Ensuring COVID-19 vaccines are administered quickly is our top priority right now," Cooper said. "We will use all resources and personnel needed. I've mobilized the NC National Guard to provide support to local health providers as we continue to increase the pace of vaccinations." The NC National Guard stated that it will mobilize about 50 personnel to aid in this important task. Six-member "immunization strike teams" are traveling to COVID-19 vaccine sites across the state, "to help North Carolina," Brig. Gen. Jeff Copeland said, "get needles into arms with the immunization for those that are willing to take the vaccines."
Pray today for a quicker pace of the COVID vaccine distribution in North Carolina. Pray that the effort on the part of the National Guard will help significantly in this regard. Pray for wisdom for Governor Roy Cooper and state and local health officials as they look to find ways to increase the vaccine distribution. Pray too for our hospitals, which in some regions of our state lack sufficient staff to devote to vaccination efforts.
Ps. 103:11: "For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him."
