Daily Prayer During the Coronavirus Crisis

Prayer #343: For the Continued Reduction in COVID-19 Cases in North Carolina

In previous Daily Prayers, we have looked at the descending trend of COVID-19 cases nationwide, with a plateau occurring over the last few weeks. Thankfully, North Carolina has experienced this same quick descent in new COVID cases since the middle of January, but without this latest plateau trend seen in the overall nationwide numbers. New cases of COVID-19 continue to plummet in North Carolina. Below are the numbers. These are rolling averages, given by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

We want to thank God for His mercies that the COVID-19 cases in our state are continuing to drop and have not plateaued out, as has happened in other states. Pray that they would continue to decrease through the spring as vaccinations occur.

Ps. 70:4: "May all who seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee. May those who love Thy salvation say evermore, 'God is great!'"
