Strict lockdown measures have been in place since May to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. However, trade unions and health inspectors report that garment manufacturing factories were ordered to remain open. This has resulted in outbreaks in the factories and the boarding houses where many workers live. Job speaks of horses that God has created who recognize the blast of the trumpets, the shouts of the commander and the call to battle. Today, how much more do we hear the call to battle in prayer? We respond by asking God to intervene in our world, struggling under the weight of the pandemic. We pray for the vulnerable, like factory workers, for mercy to abound (The Bible, Job 39:25).
