Daily Prayer During the Coronavirus Crisis

Prayer #419: For the Continued Decrease in COVID-19 Cases in the U.S.

Beginning in mid-April, after a two-month plateau, the number of daily new cases of COVID-19 began a steady descent in the United States as vaccination efforts made significant progress. Below are the rolling seven-day averages on given dates, which show the considerable progress being made as more and more people are vaccinated for the virus:

April 14th 71,503
April 15th 70,522
April 16th 70,074
April 17th 68,505
April 18th 67,581
April 19th 67,330 
April 20th 64,941
April 21st 63,090
April 22nd 62,032
April 23rd 59,932
April 24th 59, 481
April 25th 58, 352
April 26th 55,058
April 27th 53,811

May 10th 39,124
May 11th 38,135
May 12th 36,805
May 13th 35,496
May 14th 34,549
May 15th 33,866
May 16th 33,041
May 17th 32,032

During this 34-day period of time, the 7-day average of daily new COVID cases has dropped by 39,471, which calculates to about 1,161 per day. If the new COVID cases continue to fall at this rate, in about a month, or even less, there will be virtually no remaining cases of COVID-19 left in the U.S. Let's pray that indeed this would be so!

Pray that this sure, steady decline in COVID-19 cases would continue in the United States. Pray that as vaccinations continue, the virus would be eliminated.

Ps. 103:1: "Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me bless His holy name."
