Prayers for Healthcare Professionals

We are grateful for the many healthcare professionals at St. John’s who are serving our community during the Covid-19 pandemic. Below is a list of some of those names. If you know of others, please send their names to Fr. Scott This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You may also find a collect below that you are welcome to use as you hold them up in prayer. We are setting aside Fridays at noon to say this prayer corporately (an additional prayer for Fridays is below). You may, of course, use this at any time, when you are moved by the Spirit.

Blessed Savior, at this hour you hung upon the hard wood of the cross, stretching out your loving arms that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace: So clothe us in your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may serve all those in need of your healing and wholeness; for the honor of your Name. Amen.

Heavenly Father, giver of life and health: Give your power of healing to all doctors and nurses; protect all healthcare professionals against infection; comfort them when discouraged or sorrowful; and strengthen them by your life-giving Spirit, that by their ministries the health of the community may be promoted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
