Today, we want to pray especially for those states where the Coronavirus has made the most serious inroads. By far the worst of these is New York. Pray for the spread of the virus to begin now to slow dramatically in this state, as well as New Jersey, Michigan, and California. Pray for residents of these states, and all other states, to follow carefully and completely all governmental regulations as to remaining home as much as possible and to maintain social distancing. Closer to home, we want to pray that North Carolina would also see a significant slow-down in Coronavirus cases, even as we do thank the Lord that our number of cases is small, relative to states like New York.

Ps. 119:114 "You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word."
