Prayer #350: For the Descending Number of Deaths Related to COVID-19

We have not prayed concerning deaths related to COVID-19 in a while. It is indeed encouraging to see that these are continuing to descend nationally. Here are how the number of deaths due to the virus have declined since the middle of February (these are 7-day rolling averages) :

February 13 3,134 deaths
February 14 3,105 deaths
February 15 3,045 deaths
February 16 2,840 deaths
February 17 2,687 deaths
February 18 2,524 deaths
February 19 2,098 deaths
February 20 1,921 deaths
February 21 1,919 deaths
February 22 1,974 deaths
February 23 2,149 deaths
February 24 2,059 deaths
February 25 2,021 deaths
February 26 2,115 deaths
February 27 2,075 deaths
February 28 2,041 deaths
March 1 1,996 deaths
March 2 1,989 deaths
March 3 1,921 deaths
March 4 1,725 deaths
March 5 1,745 deaths
March 6 1,726 deaths
March 7 1,706 deaths
March 8 1,645 deaths

Following a leveling-off period in the latter part of February, the deaths from COVID-19 have again continued to drop as more people get vaccinated, especially those in the higher-risk categories. We want to thank the Lord for this very encouraging trend.

Today we thank God for His mercies as the deaths from COVID-19 continue to descend. Pray for the complete disappearance of this pandemic virus, both here and around the world, soon.

Ps. 21:13: "Be exalted, O LORD, in Thy strength! We will sing and praise Thy power."
