Polio in Syria

From the BBC: Destroyed sewage treatment plants, no clean drinking water, limited vaccinations. Polio, which was once eradicated from Syria, has now returned.

2 Samuel 4:4 (NKJV)
Jonathan, Saul’s son, had a son who was lame in his feet. He was five years old when the news about Saul and Jonathan came from Jezreel; and his nurse took him up and fled. And it happened, as she made haste to flee, that he fell and became lame. His name was Mephibosheth.

O Father,
Did not King David treat Mephibosheth, the heir of King Saul, with mercy? Did not Jesus die for all mankind? Have mercy, Lord! Have mercy.
The children in Syria have fallen because the fighting forces have killed their families and destroyed their homes, sanitation, and food. Have mercy, Lord! Have mercy.
Come with a strong hand for the children of Syria. Feed them like a shepherd feeds his flock. Gather the lambs with Your arm and carry them in Your bosom. Spare the children from this dread disease. Amen.
Isaiah 40:10-11
