PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

The World Health Organization (WHO) created a document called the “Values Framework” to help nations identify who should be prioritized for COVID-19 vaccination. It is incredibly difficult for nations like India to manage this framework well, with vulnerable populations not able to access what vaccinations there are. India is said to be undertaking the world’s largest COVID-19 vaccination drive. Today we speak victory over this virus over India. May we shout for joy over Your victory in India, Jesus, and lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the Lord grant our requests (The Bible, Psalm 20:5).
