Great Physician and Healer,
We thank you for the wide variety of gifts and abilities you bestow upon your image bearers. As we look back on this past year full of chaos and sickness, we thank you for those in the healthcare field, who have acted as instruments of hope and healing. We pray for those who have been on the front lines battling, with their bodies and minds, the Covid-19 virus. Guide the minds and hands of our doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, therapists, administrators, and others as they continue to work together to battle this virus. Give them wisdom, give them energy and stamina in the midst of their mentally and physically draining work. We ask you to keep their minds sharp, their morale high, and their reserves of compassion fully fueled. Keep discouragement at bay. For those who do jobs most of us would be happy to avoid, we thank you for their service. They are vital to the proper functioning of our healthcare system. For all involved in this fight over the past year, comfort and care for their families. Thank you, Lord, for the continued willingness of everyone in the healthcare field to prevent, treat, and fight this pandemic. Great Physician, may they all be instruments in your healing hands.
