I Prayed have prayed
Lord we know this potential vaccine is not luck. We praise You for going before these scientists and aiding them in their research so that they can quickly prepare a coronavirus vaccine.

Israeli scientists are on the cusp of developing the first vaccine against the novel coronavirus, according to Science and Technology Minister Ofir Akunis. If all goes as planned, the vaccine could be ready within a few weeks and available in 90 days, according to a release.

Download PRAYING GOD’S WORD IN TIMES OF CRISIS to pray for your community and for the global communities that are in crisis.

“Congratulations to MIGAL [The Galilee Research Institute] on this exciting breakthrough,” Akunis said. “I am confident there will be further rapid progress, enabling us to provide a needed response to the grave global COVID-19 threat,” Akunis said, referring to the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

For the past four years, a team of MIGAL scientists has been developing a vaccine against infectious bronchitis virus (IBV), which causes a bronchial disease affecting poultry. The effectiveness of the vaccine has been proven in preclinical trials carried out at the Veterinary Institute.

MIGAL is located in the Galilee.

“Our basic concept was to develop the technology and not specifically a vaccine for this kind or that kind of virus,” said Dr. Chen Katz, MIGAL’s biotechnology group leader. “The scientific framework for the vaccine is based on a new protein expression vector, which forms and secretes a chimeric soluble protein that delivers the viral antigen into mucosal tissues by self-activated endocytosis, causing the body to form antibodies against the virus.”

Endocytosis is a cellular process in which substances are brought into a cell by surrounding the material with cell membrane, forming a vesicle containing the ingested material.

In preclinical trials, the team demonstrated that the oral vaccination induces high levels of specific anti-IBV antibodies, Katz said.

“Let’s call it pure luck,” he said. “We decided to choose coronavirus as a model for our system just as a proof of concept for our technology.”

Let’s not call it luck. We call it the grace of God and answered prayer.

But after scientists sequenced the DNA of the novel coronavirus causing the current worldwide outbreak, the MIGAL researchers examined it and found that the poultry coronavirus has high genetic similarity to the human one, and that it uses the same infection mechanism, which increases the likelihood of achieving an effective human vaccine in a very short period of time, Katz said.

“All we need to do is adjust the system to the new sequence,” he said. “We are in the middle of this process, and hopefully in a few weeks we will have the vaccine in our hands. Yes, in a few weeks, if it all works, we would have a vaccine to prevent coronavirus.

PRAYER POINT–Pray for favor and success for these scientists who are working to develop a vaccine for coronavirus. 

MIGAL would be responsible for developing the new vaccine, but it would then have to go through a regulatory process, including clinical trials and large-scale production, Katz said.

Akunis said he has instructed his ministry’s director-general to fast-track all approval processes with the goal of bringing the human vaccine to market as quickly as possible.

“Given the urgent global need for a human coronavirus vaccine, we are doing everything we can to accelerate development,” MIGAL CEO David Zigdon said. The vaccine could “achieve safety approval in 90 days,” he said.

PRAYER POINT–Pray for accelerated development of the coronavirus vaccine.

It will be an oral vaccine, making it particularly accessible to the general public, Zigdon said.

“We are currently in intensive discussions with potential partners that can help accelerate the in-human trials phase and expedite completion of final-product development and regulatory activities,” he said.

Excerpt: The Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota says [a vaccine] isn’t the answer to the current outbreak.

“You can make a vaccine against anything overnight. The challenge is does it work and is it safe,” Dr. Michael Osterholm said.

Osterholm explained there’s several steps to create a vaccine — from understanding how immunity will work to conducting several safety studies before exposing vaccinated people to the virus.

“This is a long laborious process that can sometimes take many years, even under the best of conditions,” Osterholm said.

Instead of having China manufacture and provide 90-95% of the drugs to our country (scary), We should have our greatest ally/Israel manufacture and provide these drugs if we can’t do it within our country.
At least we will know that they are safe. Maybe there would be significantly fewer side effects for drugs that treat diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Maybe we wouldn’t have to worry about side effects for immunizations. Maybe we would have better outcomes for drugs that treat mental illness.

      Bless you Katherine,

      We now have 6 deaths, and kcase load is up to 14. My concern is most are Seniors that were
      being cared for in a nursing home (Life Care), which I had to spend time in after a stroke (not at this facility location, but owned and operated by the same group), I filed a report with the state and they were cited and shut down for some time
      due to neglect, abuse, and nursing malpractice. Please pray that these deaths were not due to any of the reasons in my complaint, in addition to the CORVID 19, and for those families now grieving for the loss. Washington State is a euthanasia law State.

I know too many people that have been harmed by vaccines.

There is too much evidence out there that vaccines are dangerous. Just watch “Vaxed” to get a glimpse.

Also, I heard Bill Gates give a Ted Talk about reducing the carbon footprint. He explained that the easiest part of the equation to reduce is people. And “they plan to use vaccines to reduce the population” among 2 or 3 other things including general health care. They want to reduce the population to about 500 million. You can find it on You Tube if it’s still up.

I have heard a few of the creators of certain vaccines come out and confess that they can’t sleep at night because they know that their creation is more harmful than helpful.

Some things to consider!

Having previously worked in pharmacovigilance (safety) with clinical trials and some post marketing . . . be VERY SKEPTICAL of the rushing to make this vaccine available!! Too little is known about the use of the vaccine in humans and 90 days is NOT long enough for ANY clinical trial to see a “safety” profile. I no longer work in the pharma industry and am educating myself regarding the behind the scenes drive toward one world government. I believe the enemy is using technologies, including vaccines, to deceive even believers. As in previous comments, do research regarding 5G ultra high frequency and the underlying desire by the “enlightened” to reduce the population. . . and the use of fetal matter in the making of vaccines. We need to wake up to the nearness of the hour of our rapture . . . May our passion to reach the lost be stirred more than ever. Don’t be deceived . . . ask the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom to discern.
May the church be the light in these lost days !!

    Those are some things I am concerned about as well, unfortunately it is an evil ideology that doesn’t value human life as God created it. Educating ourselves praying and asking the holy spirit is needed more than ever. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Mathew 7:7. Lord give us eyes to see and ears to hear what you are telling us. Help us navigate through the noise and seek your truth more than ever. Help us to come together in love, earnestly praying in one mind and accord. Amen.

    the parent to opt-out vaccinating their children.
    This virus seems to be a scare tactic.

      A gift of God? Please consider learning more about the history and development of vaccines before you make that call. Stanley Plotkin, the “godfather” of vaccines who has created more vaccines than anyone alive, talks about the heaps of aborted children whom he has used in the development of vaccines. Multiple vaccines being injected into babies and children today contain cells & DNA from aborted babies. Please watch Plotkin’s deposition interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NACBHtFMllA&t=25s. Blessings, Gwen

Currently , I would not trust a vaccine imposed on us in this manner. The swamp is not fully drained. and it would be very easy to deceive and cause harm .. with a vaccine you force people to get in fear. Simply telling people that it is developed in Israel in and of itself does not deem it safe. The very vaccine you are told could help you . might be a way to hurt you .. I will pray for discernment from the Lord. However anything developed in the current system.. makes me skeptical. Please be careful implying that you know this is safe to take and everyone should do so . Pray for the Lord to intervene if it is deception.. and pray for knowledge and truth .

      So true William, that has been my thought. How God would use His chosen people to provide an answer for the world’s crisis. The same people, the world has come against in hatred, Israeli scientists responds in maturity. God allowed them four years prior to work on a similar vaccine cure. God’s timing. As we pray for the nations of our world regarding the Coronavirus,this would be the perfect time for all nations to seek the Lord in prayer, repentance, fasting, and turn from our wicked ways to God. God lovingly sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sin and by Jesus strips we are healed. A global crisis calls for a global fast and global repentance. Remember Ninevah’s warning by the prophet Jonah. It was because the king listened and called a fast for all to repent they were all delivered from death. All of Ninevah cried out to God in fasting and repentance. Their sacrifice of denying fleshly desires and complete humility to God allowed Ninevah to live and not be destroyed. God’s word is the same today.

    Sorry but your view is plain wrong. Ebola and this virus came out of marketplace trade in wild animals for food consumption. There are hosts of viruses that exist in wild mammal populations that are novel to humans when they jump to human bodies that have never interfaced with them. So stop your conspiracy fears and deal with reality. If shadow powers wanted to depopulate there are many more effective ways to do so. This virus has a low mortality rate and most people get mild symptoms if any.

Most gracious Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus and Holy Spirit, we come first humbly before Your throne, seeking You, praising You, worshiping You, and thanking You.

Lord we pray earnestly concerning this “thought to be virus” Only You, Holy Spirit know what this is. So much speculation is that this serious illness might be caused also by “5G and its ultra high frequency that destroys You original perfect design for oxygen in our bodies and all living matter” and other wrongful causes resulting from mankind’s scientific experimentation. Yes, only You know Lord. Lord your Word says in James 1:5-10 KJV, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.”

We come before Your throne of grace seeking Your help in our time of need, Hebrews 4:16 KJV, 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Lord, we are thankful that You have enabled mankind, scientists, to discover helpful vaccines and cures in order to fight disease. However, we are confident that You did not desire us to corrupt Your gifts of wisdom in finding healing solutions. We know categorically that many vaccines today contain “aborted baby matter”, and countless other poisons and wrongful matter that are clearly counter to Your Will.

We earnestly pray that these scientists in Israel, nor any other scientists around the world, are not using any flawed research nor “corrupt matter” that is contrary to Your will nor that would harm Your perfect design. We pray binding up any flawed research that is against Your will, and loosen research consistent with Your will.

Thank You Lord for Your love and care into every detail in our lives.
To God be the glory.
Amen

Thank You for hearing and for answering our prayers; and for doing above and beyond all that we can ever ask, think, or imagine, according to Your Holy Spirit’s power that works within us. Our eyes are on You. In Jesus Name, amen and amen.

Father, we thank You for how You will use this to glorify Your name. We pray that if this is truly of useful need and not proven to be harmful like so many other vaccines, we pray this to highlight the growing anti semitism around the world and especially on our colleges campuses through the BDS push. May You use this according to Your will and may Your name be proclaimed in the use of this research. May we fear God alone. Let us not fear man or the coronavirus man created for what what created for evil God can use it for good and maybe that is to crush the head of the BDS for countries that do not allow products from Isreal may not have access to this potentially life saving research. Lord awaken Your sleeping church for the day of the Lord draws nigh as we pray in Your precious name, Amen

The history of big pharma’s financial corruption, much falsified research, and millions of irreversibly injured or dead people (see National Vaccine Information Center for some of the truth) taught me to question all claims regarding vaccines. I don’t see any cautions or questions in this article — it seems quite biased. The open plans of population control by “philanthropists” like Bill and Melinda Gates who conducted a mass exercise on the Corona Virus last year also make me question whether this has anything to do with luck or prayer — just reading the title of this article made me wonder if you’ve “drunk the cool aid.” I wonder if you might also unintentionally be participating in scare tactics. Apparently those people with strong immune systems or otherwise receiving decent medical care are recovering fine — just like any other extreme sickness.

      Thanks for your comment. As we pray for a solution to this situation, we want to look with God’s perspective to see how His hand is moving. We are not trying to scare people. We feel this situation is worth praying about-not only for the health issue, but also the economic factors to our nation, the potential impact on China (weakening communism?), the impact on elections and talking points, and the politics and economy of it all. Looking for how God is moving.

Please consider that much research and making of vaccines is dependent on the use of aborted fetal cell tissue. The vaccine industry is rife with corruption and the use of this tissue. As a believer, I strongly question the use of vaccines because of this. I would please ask that you do your research or contact me and I can provide plenty of information regarding this issue.
