Lord God, your Word tell us that those who are
generous to the poor lend to you, and that you will repay them (Proverbs 19:17).
You exhort us to look out not only for our own interests, but also for the
interests of others (Philippians 2:4). With this in mind, we pray that 600,000
doses of the vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University arrived in
Ghana's capital Accra on Wednesday. We pray that the vaccinations beginning
next week for the highest-priority recipients in Ghana will go smoothly, and
that the vaccinations will have a great impact on this nation’s battle against
COVID-19. We consider the words of Director-General of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom
Ghebreyesus, who said, "We will not end the pandemic anywhere
unless we end it everywhere.” Lord, may the vaccines be successfully
distributed around the globe, to both rich and poor nations. May we overcome this
pandemic through your blessing. Amid all of this, may we look to you as our
provider, healer and guide. May we glorify you as we help each other during
this trying time. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
