As you finish this email, please join me in praying for those serving on the front lines of COVID-19 in a healthcare capacity! 

 
Father of grace and love, we thank you for your great mercy towards us. We thank you this day for those who serve our communities, loved ones and neighbors through professional healthcare, we pray that you would keep them safe as they serve.  We pray that you would also give us mindfulness in our actions, knowing that our actions affect our vulnerable neighbors and loved ones in addition to our healthcare workers. Lord more than any blessing you have bestowed upon us, we thank you for sharing your very presents with us and drawing us each into right relationship with you Father, through the atonement of the Son and the indwelling of the Spirit.
