Several doctors and nurses reached out to me to ask if I would compose a prayer for them to recite at the moment they received their COVID-19 vaccinations. It didn’t occur to me to write this prayer, but instantly I realized that it is a holy step, a blessing and a miracle of science. We owe a deep debt of gratitude to all the researchers for this momentous breakthrough, and to the Creator who has blessed us with the vision to heal this world.
A Prayer for Receiving the Covid Vaccine
I have been praying for this day and now it is here!
With great excitement, a touch of trepidation
And with deep gratitude
I give thanks
To all the scientists who toiled day and night
So that I might receive this tiny vaccination
That will protect me and all souls around this world.
With the pandemic still raging
I am blessed to do my part to defeat it.
Let this be the beginning of a new day,
A new time of hope, of joy, of freedom
And most of all, of health.
I thank You, God, for blessing me with life
For sustaining my life
And for enabling me to reach this awe-filled moment.
