Merciful God, we come lifting up our healthcare providers, first responders, essential workers, and all the people that are putting their lives at risk to care for others.
We have faith that you will give them strength, courage and stamina to stay the course. We are confident that you will shield their bodies from disease. If any are fatigued, you will give them the energy they need to carry-on.
We pray you will give them wisdom and understanding of how to treat the patients that come to them. Bless the facilities in which they work, O God. We pray that you will provide them with the equipment they need to do their job well. Give them wisdom about new technologies for treatment.
We know that you will replenish them in all the ways they need to be restored. You will pour back into them what they have poured out for others. We know that you will renew them each day, by your grace.
We pray that you will strengthen them emotionally, O God. If any are scared, take away their fear. If they are overwhelmed, you will reassure them. We know that you will touch them in all the ways they need to be touched. You will heal them in all the ways they need to be healed—mind, body, spirit, in the name of Jesus.
We thank you for the way you’ve moved in the situation so far. And we trust that you will help them complete the journey. We thank you for your grace. And in all things, we give you the glory. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
