Loving God, we ask that your presence be felt by those who are still working so hard to fight the pandemic. The medical professionals that have given so much and dealt with so much pressure deserve our gratitude. May their families that have dealt with the anxiety and fear of watching their loved ones going into harms way know how thankful we are for their sacrifice. Be with the teachers who have dealt with the challenges of educating children in so many different ways. May they know how thankful we are for the hard work they have put into the changing ways we have educated our children. We ask that you help us as we continue to fight this disease and find ways for the most vulnerable among us to be vaccinated and made safe from this pandemic. Help us to continue through to the finish line in our actions to keep others safe. All this we ask in the name of a healing God. Amen.
