The Associated Press reports:
As coronavirus continues surging in Oklahoma, nearing 200,000 cases, Gov. Kevin Stitt has declared Thursday a day of prayer and fasting in the state.
“I believe we must continue to ask God to heal those who are sick, comfort those who are hurting and provide renewed strength and wisdom to all who are managing the effects of COVID-19,” Stitt said in a Monday statement.
Stitt, who tested positive for the virus in July and previously donated plasma in an effort to help other virus patients recover, said he will make a second plasma donation.
In April, Stitt appeared on JMG when he asked Trump to designate the pandemic as an “act of God” in order that Oklahoma’s oil and gas producers can maintain their land leases despite halting production. At his January 2019 inauguration, Stitt declared that the primary mission of his administration would be to “bring people to Jesus.”
