Hands in heart shape

By Dori Gorman, YMCA Chaplain

Dear Lord, 

We thank you for each person who has chosen a medical career that involves caring for the health of others. You are the Great Physician, and when anyone steps into a healing profession to offer care to others, they are mimicking you and your care.  

We pray for all who are putting their health on the line for the sake of others. We pray for the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, first responders, hospital workers and nursing home personnel. We ask for you to protect them and their families. We ask for your wisdom and clarity of thought as they make moment-by-moment decisions. We ask for your rest when it is needed.   

Please bring unity among staff on the ground and decision makers from afar. We ask, Lord, that they would extend grace, patience and forgiveness to one another.   

As each of these workers strives to give care, peace and healing to others, may they receive your care, your peace and your healing touch today.  

Amen.
