COVID - Prayer for Front Line Volunteers

MK 10:43:
But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant.

A Prayer for the Front liners

Heavenly Father, thank you for the front-liners caring for, protecting, and serving our communities, our families, and us. Thank you for these servant leaders, from our own community and those from others, called to this work, trained for such a time as this, daily risking their own health and safety for others. 

Lord, we thank you for the many people who have generously come forward to assist our front liners with personnel, materials and finance. Bless them, Lord and their families with your abundant graces.

Please protect our front liners and their workers from harm. Give them courage and strength. Draw them close to you, Lord, and let them feel your presence throughout the long hours they are working. 

Father, please provide everything they need, both for the people they are serving and for their loved ones. Surround them with people who will help and support them and their families, even as they selflessly care for others. 

You said we would face troubles in this world, but also that you had overcome it. We know your grace and strength go to work together with our front-liners, Lord, to ultimately bring about the best outcome possible. 

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
