Almighty God, today we rejoice that the World Health Organization has officially declared the continent of Africa to be polio-free! With the COVID-19 pandemic discouraging the world throughout this year, it is uplifting to hear that polio has finally been eradicated in Africa. We are thankful for the diligent, 30-year effort to eliminate this disease that kills and maims primarily children. We celebrate this tremendous milestone for the continent. May the same be declared regarding COVID-19 in coming years. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
