Words from Psalm 139 for Countries with no or limited access to Covid-19 vaccine

Where can I go from God’s spirit?
Or where can I flee from God’s presence?
If I ascend to heaven, God is there;
if I make my bed in Sheol, God is there.
If I take the wings of the morning
and settle at the farthest limits of the sea,
even there God’s hand shall lead me,
and God’s right hand shall hold me fast,

but my global neighbors do not hold me fast,
do not open the hand that holds vaccine,
if I live in one hundred thirty countries
that have received none,
and many others who have received
such limited doses.

For any rise of generosity
in rich countries and manufacturers
to fight vaccine nationalism,
we give thanks.

For a new task force in the UN
and COVAX attempts,
we give thanks.

For anyone receiving an injection
with gratitude,
who cries out that health-justice
should travel on the wings
of everybody’s morning,

we give thanks. Amen
