Health Care Prayers March 2013

You may like to begin by reading Luke 5:17-25, and reflecting again on the authority of Jesus and on the multi-faceted nature of the healing Christ brings to people.

In the light of that passage we pray:

  • for Christians working in the healthcare field, that they may be aware of their faith as an integral part of their work, and of their work as an integral part of their faith, and that they may have the strength, courage and wisdom they need to be true and good witnesses.
  • for the strengthening of spiritual influence in the work of healthcare and the thinking behind it; praying that there may be a culture of real care for people, and a recognition of the true nature and value of human life
  • acknowledging our belief as Christians that Jesus Christ is Lord of healthcare as of everything else: that the ultimate power is not with scientific knowledge, nor with personal ambition, nor with the economic restraints or the so-called political “realities”, but with Jesus Christ, in whose sight ever human soul is precious, and in whom God came into the world to bring life in all its fullness.

 

We pray:

  • for those directly involved in care…
  • for those who are in training…
  • for those doing scientific research…
  • for those with the responsibility of administration…
  • for those who are caring in situations of great poverty…
  • for those ministering specifically to people’s spiritual needs…

 

This month we pray especially for staff and patients in Ysybty Dewi Sant and Y Bwthyn, Pontypridd, and for local churches and their ministry in hospitals

We pray for the students and staff of the School of Care Sciences, and any of them who are in particular need.

‘May the Lord bless you and take care of you; May the Lord be kind and gracious to you; May the Lord look on you with favour and give you peace.’  (Numbers 6:24-26)
