Prayer #357: For the Progress in COVID-19 Vaccinations

We want to continue to pray for COVID-19 vaccinations here and around the world. Slowly but surely, more people are receiving the vaccinations. There is still a long way to go, however. Below are the percentages of people in the United States that are fully vaccinated since the beginning of this year (the numbers for every day were not available:

Over the past month, the average daily increase in the percentage of the U.S. population vaccinated was 0.26%. This means that in a month's time, about 7.8% are being vaccinated. Thus far, after an increase in the vaccination rate early on in the year, the rate of vaccination has remained quite steady. If this continues to be so, it still will be a number of months before most of the population is vaccinated. Nevertheless, there should be a cumulative benefit as more and more are vaccinated, and at some point, it is believed by many viral experts, a "herd immunity" will be reached---the point at which a sufficient number of people will be vaccinated to prevent the virus from continuing to multiply. What this percentage is, no one knows for certain.

Pray for the COVID-19 vaccinations to continue, and by God's grace, for the pace of the vaccinations to pick up. Pray for continued patience and care as the virus, though considerably subsiding, is still with us.

Ps. 70:4-5: "May all who seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee! May those who love Thy salvation say evermore, 'God is great!' But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! Thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not tarry!"
