Prayer #381: For the New Rise in COVID-19 in Pennsylvania
Yesterday, we prayed for Michigan, which is seeing a rise in new COVID-19 cases. Today, we want to pray for Pennsylvania, which is also now experiencing a surge in the virus as well. The ascent of COVID in Pennsylvania is not as dramatic as in Michigan, but state health authorities there are still concerned. Cases have risen steadily since mid-March, and yesterday, daily new cases exceeded 5,000. Hospitalizations have slowly been on the rise as well. The positivity rate for COVID testing in Pennsylvania is at 10.2%, the highest that it has been for some time. Thankfully, though, deaths from COVID in Pennsylvania continue to remain low, since many of the highest-risk people have been vaccinated. Presently, 19.6% of Pennsylvania's population has been fully vaccinated and 36.0% partially vaccinated.
Pray for the state of Pennsylvania during this rise in new Coronavirus cases. Pray for God's guidance for the governor and state health authorities as they consider how to respond to this new surge.
Ps. 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth."
