Nepal, by Thandiwe Dale-Ferguson

A prayer for World Health Day – 7 April

For the many children, women, and men whose lives have been saved through global cooperation,

God, we praise You.

For the many who needlessly suffer around the world because of indifference or malice,

God, we beg Your blessing.

For the progress in people’s health made possible by technology and creativity,

God, we praise You.

For ways in which technology is misused or fails to benefit those in most need,

God, we beg Your blessing.

For the continued grace You pour into our world, struggling to do Your will,

God, we praise You.

As we labour to improve the health of those in this world, may our notes of petition always end in a song of praise.

Amen.
