Almighty God, we join in prayer with Canadians as they seek to halt a second wave of coronavirus cases in their country, particularly within their two most populous provinces. With most of the new cases among those aged 40 and younger, we know the people are concerned. We pray for those who have been asked to honor the special measures over the next 28 days to do so whenever and however possible. We pray for people who need medical attention to be able to secure it safely and efficiently. We pray against any tensions that may flare up as people are asked to limit their activities again. Finally, we pray that the government’s significant efforts to secure vaccines for its people will ultimately benefit the entire nation. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
