Yesterday we prayed for a continued decrease in deaths from COVID-19, and today, likewise, we pray for the total hospitalizations in the United States due to the virus to keep falling as it has been doing since January 12th. Below are the numbers, taken from the Centers for Disease Control's tracking. See how dramatically the hospitalizations for COVID-19 in our country have consistently descended:

We should really be thanking God for what these numbers show. The total hospitalizations from COVID-19 in the United States are approximately 42% what they were 42 days ago. This means that there are far fewer people fighting for their lives in a hospital ICU unit. There is much less hospital overcrowding. There is less medical staff overwork. Truly, there is much to thank God for. Though it is still probably too soon to say so definitively, we may indeed be seeing the demise of COVID-19.

We want to surely thank God for this wonderful drop-in COVID-related hospitalizations in our nation. Pray indeed that this continues. Pray that as vaccinations proceed across the country, there would be a continued reduction in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. Pray for patience and continued caution for everyone as we pray for COVID-19 to be eradicated.

1 Chr. 29:11: "Thine, O LORD, is the greatness and the power, and the glory and the victory and the majesty; for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is Thine. Thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and Thou are exalted as head above all."
