Prayer #59: For a Continued Decline in Coronavirus Cases
Yesterday, Dr. Deborah Birx, the coordinator for the Coronavirus response at the White House and also the U.S. Global Aids Coordinator under Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, announced that there has been a dramatic decline in COVID-19 deaths and hospitalizations across the country, with testing increasing in all 50 states. An important measure of Coronavirus activity is the positivity rate, which is the percentage of tests that come back positive for COVID-19. It is this value that is in decline. It is believed by many that as the percentage of population tests continues to increase, the positivity rate will be seen as significantly lower than it's thought to be now.
We thank God for this very encouraging news. Let's indeed pray today for a continued decrease in the number of confirmed active cases of COVID-19 across our nation. Pray that more testing would continue to become available in every state. Pray that the Coronavirus would soon go into a significant decline and then disappear.
Ps. 121:1-5: "I lift up my eyes to the hills. From whence does my help come? My helps come from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved, He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand.'"
