OKLAHOMA CITY — Governor Kevin Stitt declared Thursday, Dec. 3 as a statewide day of prayer and fasting for all Oklahomans affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement, Gov. Stitt asked people from all faiths and religious backgrounds to join together with him in prayer.

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.

Gov. Stitt also encourages churches and other religious communities to continue taking precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19.

“I believe our churches and faith communities have an incredible opportunity during this season to provide hope to Oklahomans who are struggling as we close a year that has been mentally, emotionally and physically draining,” said Gov. Stitt. “It’s important that we continue to find safe ways to gather as we all do our part to protect our families, neighbors and communities from this virus.”
