Prayer #337: For the Very Low Incidence of the Flu This Winter

There are not many positive things that can be said about COVID-19, but one is that the presence of this virus, and all of the precautions taken because of it, has led to an extremely low incidence of the flu this winter. Normally, February is the peak month for the flu, but it has virtually disappeared in the United States and is at the lowest levels seen in decades. With masking and social distancing, and far less traveling, there has been a very minimal opportunity for the flu to spread. For this, even as the fight to eradicate COVID-19 continues, we can indeed be thankful.

We do thank God that we have not seen the "twindemic" of COVID and flu that was feared earlier. We recognize the mercy of God in this. Thank Him today for His mercies in the midst of trials.

Lam. 3:22-23: "The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness."
