Prayer #11: For the Search for a Coronavirus Vaccine
Since the Coronavirus's inception, there has been a diligent search for a vaccine. At present, there is still is no specific medicine that can be used either to treat this virus or to prevent its acquisition in the body. Medical research and pharmaceutical companies, in the United States, Europe and China especially, are hard at work in their investigations. Today, the US Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn stated that the FDA has been working with various vaccine manufacturers for weeks now. There is a candidate vaccine that was put in clinical trial several weeks ago, Hahn indicated. Tests will be done on this vaccine, as any other candidates, to ensure that it is both safe and effective.
We want to pray, on this day, for the rapid development of a vaccine that will safely and effectively prevent people from contracting the COVID-19 virus. Pray for the scores of companies, and for individual virologists and other biological/pharmaceutical scientists that are now laboring long and hard to find such a vaccine. Pray for God's wisdom and leading to these companies and scientific researchers. Pray that once found, it could be employed quickly around the world.
Prov. 3:5-8 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit to Him, and He will direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones."
