Today I want us to come together to pray for our healthcare professionals. Doctors and nurses and all support staff. Anyone working in a hospital at this point. They are placing their lives on the line every single day and are true heroes. My words fail me and I have a hard time expressing my gratitude because my mind cannot comprehend what they are facing. The stories from them on social media sound like they are in a warzone and you know what, they certainly are. This virus becomes scarier the more we learn about it and yet they are still there on the frontlines risking being exposed.
If you are in the medical field I just want to thank you. But gosh, my thank you doesn’t even seem like enough right now.
So I’ll do all I can do right now and that is pray and ask others to join me in prayer for you and your families.
Dear Jesus we come together in your precious name to ask you for our heroes. The ones on the frontline of this virus, our medical workers. From doctors to nurses to janitors to office staff to anyone that’s in that field, we pray and ask you for your holy protection over their lives. Father we pray a hedge of protection over their lives and ask you to send your angels to protect them during this unbelievable crisis. Jesus in your name we pray that this virus will not enter their body. Jesus in your name we pray that they will not bring this virus home to their families. In your name Jesus we pray that you will give them a supernatural strength to get through each of their shifts. Jesus we don’t know what to say in times like this and all we can do is say your name. Jesus. But your word tells us that your name has power, your word tells us that your name is above all names. And we call onto your name Jesus and we beg you to stand with all of our medical staff. Lord give them wisdom, knowledge and strength every single day. Jesus in your name I pray that you will bless them and keep them. That you will shine your face upon them and be gracious to them. I pray that you will turn your face toward them and give them peace. And that the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard their hearts and their minds in Christ Jesus. It’s in your name we pray, Amen.
Today I am reading and claiming Psalm 23 for the lives of our medical staff and for every single one of us. Read it and claim it over your life. I am especially praying verse four over all of our healthcare professionals.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
