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.

Lord, we pray;

Please protect our coworkers and their families in this time of uncertainty and give them strength, courage and peace.

Please keep our work family’s that are on the front line safe and guide them through their daily trials.

Please take away the pain and sickness and look after us in this unforeseen time.

Please give us opportunities to share the hope that is found in you.

Please offer guidance and health to everyone during this world crisis.

Please protect our healthcare coworkers. Guide their mind and hands as they perform their selfless duties.

We pray constantly that you and your loved ones “be strong and courageous, do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord, our God, is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)

This we ask of you. Amen.

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

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!

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.

Dear Lord,

Please be with those who are spending time away from their families this Easter weekend to care for the seriously ill and dying. Give them strength to make difficult decisions that will need to be made in the days to come, and keep them healthy. Grant comfort to the those who are unable to be with their seriously ill loved ones or who are mourning the passing of family or closed friends. Allow all people to trust in you, so you may see us through this time to more peaceful days ahead. 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.

All healthcare workers and their families that God will comfort and strengthen them. My heart is full of love and respect for you all! While so many, out of fear for themselves, have run the other way from those who suffer, you continue to put yourselves in harms way. And I am praying for this country. I know God is using you every day to show us how we should care for our brothers and sisters no matter the cost. God bless and keep you!

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.

peace and God’s protection for all of us, for wisdom for those providing care.

Lord Jesus, we thank you that in the midst of this storm you walk beside us. You’ve promised to never leave or forsake us and we need you now more than ever. Please be with every person who is infected- those quarantined at home, those hospitalized and especially those in the ICUs. Be with their families- bring hope and encouragement. Help us as healthcare workers to shine your light, your love, your kindness. You’re bigger than a pandemic and we trust you to guide us through as we put our faith in you. Thank for your saving grace each and every day. Amen.

My husband and I have been and will continue to pray for the doctors and nurses at Mercy as well as those around the world. I’ve attached a picture of my irises, which have bloomed for the first time since I planted them 5 years ago. It has been an encouragement to me to know that God cares enough to give me these flowers, at this time. I hope they encourage you as well.
