Daily Prayer During the Coronavirus Crisis

Prayer #44: For the Possibility of a Second Wave of Coronavirus This Fall

The head of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Robert Redfield, recently stated that a second wave of the COVID-19 virus is possible this fall, with the onset of the traditional flu season. Redfield suggested that this second wave could be more difficult to handle than the present one since there would be flu and the Coronavirus outbreaks at the same time. Some public health officials disagree, believing that the virus will have played itself out by that time. One possible thing to consider, however, is the fact that, for the first time perhaps in the history of diseases, a worldwide attempt was made to quarantine people who were well, versus what has been done historically, which is to quarantine those who are sick. The isolation of the mass of the population from the COVID-19 virus may have prevented the buildup of large-scale immunity. So it is at least possible that there could be a comeback of the virus later this year or early next year. No one really knows for sure, though---only time will tell. It is truly in God's hands.

Pray today that the COVID-19 would dissipate and die out completely. Pray that the virus would not return after summer. Pray also for any preparations that will need to be made in advance of a possible second outbreak. 

Is. 46:9-10: "I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, 'My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose."
