Let us pray for the pharmaceuticals industry, in this country and around the world. We give thanks for the wonders of modern medicine, and the skills of the scientists and researchers who work to develop new drugs to treat and cure ever more complex diseases. We pray for your continued blessing on all involved with securing funding and directing projects, that funds may be used wisely, and attention given to the most urgent needs. In particular, we pray for government organizations and health charities in developing countries, who struggle to afford basic medicines for their people. Help them to find new ways to subsidize affordable drugs for those who need them most, and may international companies be generous and creative in seeking to provide the most cost-effective options possible. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
