Prayer for Healthcare Workers

Father,

The state of our daily lives is unparalleled, yet You remain the same. We scramble to react and prepare for an unprecedented situation in the medical field. Healthcare workers are facing unimaginable circumstances at this critical moment in history. While many of us have been inconvenienced in both minor and devastating ways, the brave individuals who continue to go to work to fight the pandemic on the front lines face a difficult and scary daily reality.

For those facing COVID-19 head on, their family and friends wait in the wings as prayer warriors, lingering each day for promises of hope and healing for our nation and our world. When we picture them, let us know unequivocally they are a child of the one True God, created with purpose to bring glory and honor to Your name. We lift our healthcare workers up to You, today, God. Psalm 91 reminds us you will rescue us from deadly plagues.

The apostle James wrote, “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven” (James 5:14-15). Father, we pray over the sick people our healthcare workers are tending to. We know You are our Healer, and You are a miracle worker, God. You can heal COVID-19, and we pray as a church, Your people, and followers of Jesus Christ, for this pandemic to take a miraculous turn towards healing, and a cure. We pray for the cease of its contagious spread and the protection of those caring for the sick and infected.

“So do not fear, for I am with you;” says Isaiah 41:10, “do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” God, You are our Protector and Sustainer. Increase our trust in Your providence, Father. Renew the strength of our healthcare workers and first responders moment by moment. Shield them from the pandemic virus, Father. Calm their anxieties and replace them with the truth of Your word. Increase their courage, and confidence in Your protective hand, amidst the very real fear of this pandemic.

Provide them with wisdom and swiftness, Father, as they treat patients and take careful precautions for their own safety. In the battleground of their minds, and the worried and anxious hearts of their relatives, bring to mind the divinely inspired words of the apostle Paul: “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:4-7 ESV) We have Your peace, Christ. Let us grip it firmly in these scary moments.

We lift up those serving on the front line in this COVID-19 Epidemic from our own Church Family; specifically we lift up:

Shiloh Banning

Howard Mattingly

Lindsey Mays

Charlie McGinley

Tori Peracki

Abby Proteau

Dawn Sharp

Erica Somers

To each of you, we pray that “God, like a bird protecting its young, will cover you with His feathers, will protect you under His great wings; His faithfulness will form a shield around you, a rock-solid wall to protect you” (Psalm 91:4 VOICE paraphrase).

In Christ’s Name, we pray.

Amen.

Revelation Bible Study Course

Have you ever been intrigued by the symbolism contained in the Book of Revelation? Have thoughts about what happens at the end of time ever crossed your mind? With the way our culture seems to be going, have you ever wondered if we are living in the final days? Does it seem like the Apocalypse is inching ever closer to becoming a reality?
 
Now’s the time to learn and, just maybe, have some of your questions answered.
Beginning on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, (what a unique timing of the date being September 11 and all!), at T.O.W.N. Square Adult Bible Study, we will be starting a Bible Study on the Book of Revelation. We invite you to come and be a part of this engaging Bible Study. T.O.W.N. Square begins with a family meal for everyone at 5:30 p.m. every Wednesday. At 6:00 p.m., everyone convenes in the sanctuary for a brief time of worship (1 song & prayer); then the various age groups are dismissed to go to their respective classes.
 
From the online Bible Study Courses… The Book of Revelation Bible Study is designed as an expository study of the Book of Revelation, taking the student through the entire book with cross references to other portions of Scripture. The purpose is to assist the student in gaining a greater comprehension of the biblical teaching contained in the Book of Revelation with an emphasis on practical application.
This study presents introductory information about the Book of Revelation followed by twenty-six lessons devoted to an in-depth study of the biblical text.
 
The student will begin by exploring a portion of Revelation with the help of a series of exploratory questions. There will then follow an in-depth study of the passage, guided by an expositional commentary on the text. The student should prepare for his study by asking the Holy Spirit to enlighten his mind and open his heart to receive not only the teaching of Scripture but Christ Himself as He is presented in the Scriptures.
 
To prepare in advance for the first class, we also invite you to visit the Bible Study Course on Revelation by clicking this link. Each week, we will be advancing through the courses set out in this website.
 
We look forward to seeing you at this engaging Bible Study next Wednesday. Please call me at the church number (219.759.1108) if you have any questions.
