I plead the shed blood of Jesus on our healthcare workers to watch over them & protect them and I thank you Lord for their loving help & kindness. Be with them and sustain them, Lord; bless them for doing unto the least of these as your word says in Matthew 25:40 (see pic). We thank you & praise you, Lord. Amen!🙏🏻📖🕊💞

all the health care providers and staff who serve so selflessly each day. May the Lord protect them as they minister to their patients and families. May they be strengthened in knowing that many people are praying for them. May they know how much they are appreciated. Lord, give us all hope, the hope that can only be found in You.
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.

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.

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

Bless Our Coats, Our Scrubs, Our Suit Jackets

“But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture.” Malachi 4:2

“And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and though she had spent all her living on physicians, she could not be healed by anyone. She came up behind [Jesus] and touched the fringe of his garment, and immediately her discharge of blood ceased.” Luke 8:43-44

In Jewish culture, the “wings” of a rabbi’s garment is the fringe of his prayer shawl, called a tallit. This is what scholars believe the woman in Luke’s story who sought healing was touching when she was miraculously healed, the wings of his garment.

There are schools of thought saying this woman was intentionally reaching for the fringe of this rabbi’s prayer shawl, his “wings”, because she believed in faith what the Lord of Hosts spoke to the prophet Micah … that those who revered the Lord would see the Sun of Righteousness rise with healing in his wings. She BELIEVED there was HEALING in Jesus’ garment, because she knew the word of God, and believed him to be the Messiah.

May this same knowledge of the goodness of God’s word penetrate our hearts in this time. May we know that there is healing, freedom, and joy in store when we find ourselves at the feet of Rabbi Jesus. May we all turn to prayer and find healing in His wings, for our hearts, for our spirits, for our bodies, and for our communities.

May we be a neighbor to every person, and believe faithfully with our whole hearts in God’s goodness and mercy. May MERCY be poured out over every patient, every loved one, every technician, every nurse, every physician, and all hospital support staff.

May every garment we wear to work be our own “tallit” – our own prayer shawl – our own covering that we faithfully pray in as we go about the work we have been called forth to do.

Bless our coats – may there be great healing in this place when we wear them with faith.
Bless our scrubs – may there be freedom in this place when we wear them with faith.
Bless our suit jackets – may there be joy in this place when we wear them with faith.

Bless our garments.
May we remember your gracious covering,
Your healing nature,
And your joy in our faithfulness,
as we wear these garments each day.
