I Prayed have prayed
Lord God, we pray for our healthcare system, our doctors. Protect their lives and may they be brave and speak of the medicines that can help us with Covid and against the vaccine.

Some made their fortunes developing new vaccines and promising antibody treatments, while others sell much-needed diagnostic tests and personal protective equipment.

Shortly after the World Health Organization declared Covid-19 a global pandemic on March 11, 2020, markets collapsed and economies around the world plunged into recession. At the same time, hundreds of billionaires fell from the ranks of Forbes’ World’s Billionaires list, capturing a snapshot of the pandemic’s impact on the fortunes of the world’s wealthiest people.

One year later, things couldn’t be more different: a record 493 new billionaires joined the list this year, propelled by a red-hot stock market and unprecedented economic stimulus. Among those newcomers are at least 40 new entrants who draw their fortunes from companies involved in fighting Covid-19. Some, such as Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel and BioNTech cofounder Uğur Şahin, have become household names thanks to the vaccines they helped develop. Others got rich making everything from personal protective equipment and diagnostic tests to antibody treatments and software that helps authorities schedule vaccination campaigns, which will be essential in reopening economies and returning to normal life…

Some vaccine companies have been so successful that their rise over the last year has minted several new billionaires from the same company, including four apiece from Moderna and Tianjin-based CanSino Biologics, which saw its one-shot vaccine approved by Chinese regulators in February. And it’s not just the vaccine discoverers: companies that mass produce the vaccines and contract research firms that help firms run clinical trials have both reaped the rewards, creating new fortunes for people like Juan López-Belmonte López of Spanish pharma outfit Rovi and Karin Sartorius-Herbst and Ulrike Baro of German biopharma firm Sartorius AG.

So sad that the only sure thing the vaccines are good for is making money for the greedy! The tests that don’t half work; but is making people rich! The vaccines that do not stop anyone from catching, spreading, or dying from covid; but is still making greedy men and women rich! The booster that does absolutely nothing! Lots of money spent brainwashing people with the lies about covid and the vaccines/ booster! FATHER GOD please let the truth come out! All liars will find their place in the lake of fire! FATHER GOD please send laborers to the pharmaceutical company heads, doctors, Fauci, media, and the other deceivers about this pandemic; and let them repent and receive JESUS as LORD! Also, FATHER GOD please send laborers to every other person involved in the business of prospering from this covid disease to tell them about JESUS in the MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS! Amen!

Father, forgive us for holding money as our idol. Free us from the love of money and deliver us from those who invent and process and provide simply for money. It isn’t bad at be rich, but preserve us from the evils of the love of money
