Prayer #8: That Coronavirus Mutations Would Be Benign
All viruses have a tendency to mutate as over time as they spread. Sometimes such mutations can be more harmful than the original virus, though generally, the likelihood of this is quite low. In fact, most mutations are detrimental to the virus, killing it before it has the opportunity to replicate itself. This is important since any vaccine that is developed would otherwise not be effective over the long term.
So today, we cry out to God in prayer that the mutations of COVID-19 would not create a more harmful virus. We know that our Creator God knows all about this virus. He is the One to whom we must call. We thank Him that He who created our bodies knows how to watch over them and protect them. He is sovereign overall, and that includes the Coronavirus!
Col. 1:16 "For in Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities---all things were created through Him and for Him."
