It’s sometimes easy to lose sight of the bravery of America’s heroes in the midst of this pandemic. They’re all around us, but what can we do while we’re stuck at home?
Perhaps you have a child, family member or friend serving on the front lines of the battle against coronavirus. We want to honor their service, and help you find ways to pray for them.
Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. (1 John 4:7)
Hear our prayers. By your healing power, grant them quick minds and skillful hands. Strengthen them in times of trauma. In quiet times, give them rest and assurance of the value of their work. Keep them ever prepared for the work you have called them to do, for your mercy’s sake.
Give us, we pray, grateful hearts for the courageous willingness of our neighbors to enter into danger on our behalf. In your mercy, bind up the injured, and replenish the spirits of those wounded in body or soul. Help us to honor and serve those who have served in our name.
All this we ask in the name of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
