Day of Prayer for Frontline Workers
Two weeks ago, our small denomination dedicated a day of prayer for healthcare professionals who are serving on the frontlines in caring for the sick during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Because there are other men and women working daily on the frontline to serve us, even at their own risk, we wanted to dedicate this Friday, April 17 as a Day of Prayer for Frontline Workers.
We want to pray for men and women who transport food, stock grocery shelves, and work at checkout counters that make it possible for us to purchase food. Men and women who provide public transportation, and men and women who work in police and fire departments around the world providing essential emergency services. This is not an exhaustive list, so when you pray, add anyone you know who is serving on the frontlines.
As Thessalonians 5:17 exhorts us, let us “pray without ceasing” for them. Here are a few ways you can pray:
- Ask God to protect these frontline workers from being infected with the COVID-19 virus.
- Ask God to heal those frontline workers who do contract the COVID-19 virus.
- Ask God to give them strength and endurance for the long hours they need to work.
- Ask God to comfort them when they need to spend time separated from their families or need to self-quarantine because of risk of exposure.
- Ask God to give them wisdom for any difficult situations they may face.
- Ask God to use Christian frontline workers as a voice of gospel hope for the hopeless.
Thank you for praying without ceasing!
