Daily Prayer During the Coronavirus Crisis

Prayer #263: For the Operation Warp Speed Distribution of COVID-19 Vaccines in 2021

Dr. Moncef Slaoui, the chief medical officer for Operation Warp Speed, the White House's aggressive program for the development and delivery of vaccines for the COVID-19 virus, put to rest today concerns that there would not be enough of the vaccines for rapid distribution to the U.S. population. In addition to the two vaccines already at or very near approval for use, those of Pfizer and Moderna, there are four others in the development pipeline that will soon be ready for use as well, including vaccines from Johnson and Johnson and AstraZeneca. These last two, Slaoui said, should be ready by late January or early February (Johnson and Johnson) and late February (AstraZeneca). Two others will follow after that. Slaoui stated that 100 million doses of vaccine will be ready in the first quarter of 2021 and 100 million in the second quarter.

Pray for the quick and safe implementation of the distribution of these COVID-19 virus vaccines. The rapid development and delivery timetable of these vaccines exceed anything in world history. Pray indeed that God, through His mercies, would use this to stem the progress of this deleterious contagion and to then eliminate it completely.

Ps. 36:5: "Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness to the clouds."
