As an Intake Specialist in the Springfield Mercy ED we see a lot of homeless, displaced, and mentally ill people. By God’s intervention and grace, I’m praying they will find homes, find family and support, and be healed of their illnesses.

Ventilator Patients:

“Do not be afraid…., for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD.

The LORD is our strength and our salvation, whom shall I fear?

The LORD is a strong tower, we run to HIM and we are safe.

Stay strong and be at peace. The battle belongs to the LORD! Be at peace.

Be with us oh LORD, in our hour of need.

In JESUS NAME.

Amen.

Dear heavenly father, please watch over and guide the hands, hearts and families of all the front line staff medical personnel and emergency workers. Please also protect those in maintenance, housekeeping, food service as they do their very best to provide for all of us. Give strength to all of those fighting for their lives. Please father bring peace to all of the families grieving over the loss of loved ones to this terrible pandemic. One last thing father, please replace the fear in everyone’s hearts with knowledge and peace that we are all in your loving hands and grace. There’s not one heart that’s not been altered by this crisis, as there’s also not one heart that is not loved by you…… this I pray in your name AMEN!

I’m praying for all of the Respiratory Therapists here at Mercy Hospital. My daughter is an RT in Illinois and I have learned so much from her . I am aware of how much exposure the RT’s have with the Covid patients. I pray for your hand of protection, Lord, to be on them as they gown up and take care of the very sick on the front lines. I also ask for protection for their families.

Heavenly Father we admit that we need your help. Everyone is doing their best to end the progression and tragic results of the Covid virus, but we confess that we need your intervention and blessing on every hand that is on the frontline of fighting this pandemic. You promised that if we need wisdom we should ask, we are asking now for wisdom for our leaders as they continue to lead us in the battle. You promised comfort in times of distress and confusion, we ask now that we would all be blessed with your comfort. Thank you for opening our eyes to see the answers to our questions, the strength to go one more day and the compassion to extend Jesus healing ministry. Amen

I’m praying for our frontline healthcare workers that they will stay healthy and have peace while enduring many stressful situations while on the job. I’m praying for families that are struggling financially. I’m praying for parents who are now juggling their full time jobs and full time schooling their children. I’m praying for our communities to come together and abide by the social distancing guidelines so we can prevent over crowding in our hospitals. I’m praying that we can get through this and more people will continue to recover from this disease everyday.

You, Lord, are our hope for these times. You love all those who suffer in illness and those caregivers who daily risk their own lives. You are our home. You comfort us who do not understand this new way of life; this new discipline. Lord, we humbly ask for your ever-watchful eye; for your healing of this world.

Amen

Dear Lord,
I come to you on this Good Friday, lifting up my fellow co-workers….tired, worn, feeling beaten, missing their families and their loved ones. Let them know You love them, let them feel Your loving arms around them. I don’t know what they are going through, what they are feeling but You do and you are the one who can calm their anxieties, give them encouragement when needed, but mostly give them assurance that YOU are in control still. There will be a calm soon to this storm. For the patients – Lord, heal their bodies, heal their hearts – if they do not know who You are – please open their hearts to receive You – for we do not know what tomorrow may bring – only YOU do. Please give us all direction and guidance in the way you would have us to go in the days that are coming ahead. Thank you for your many blessings you have given us. Thank you for the sun shining outside. Thank you for the good works of those around us. In your name I pray – Amen.

Strength for our medical professionals on the front line. In the hospitals, ERs, ICU, those dealing with and around this disease. Risking their lives to help and save others is noble, and I will never forget it. People will suffer from PTSD induced by this pandemic, which for many will be worse than working with the epidemic itself. I love you for what you are doing, for what you do, every day. You are soldiers at war, a war justified by an attack on our ill-prepared nation. Like any good soldier, you fight first and ask questions later. God bless you.

I am personal friends with the Great Physician and I am asking Him to guide the doctors and nurses at this difficult time, and give special comfort and refreshment to all the support staff that is working so hard to give exceptional care to all who need it.
