Begin by reading Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
‘A time to be born and a time to die…’ Christians often say they’re not afraid of death, rather it’s the process of dying that they are anxious about. As Health care professionals we walk with people through illness, anxiety, fear, death and dying.
For Jesus there was a time to be born and a time to die. He lived fully knowing his death was approaching. Yet he lived his dying, trusting God, caring and giving to others to the end…
- Pray for those who are approaching death, in hospice, hospital and home. Pray for those who care for them medically and spiritually.
- Pray for Prince Charles Hospital, Merthyr
Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil has around 430 beds, and provides acute emergency and elective medical and surgical services, Intensive Care and Coronary Care; consultant-led obstetrics services with Special Care Baby Unit, inpatient consultant-led paediatric medicine and has a busy Accident and Emergency unit. There are seven operating theatres. Pray for all healthcare and management staff, and all who are patients today.
As we pray for health care in North America, pray especially for those whose financial situations leave them anxious about accessing treatment they need.
Pray for the staff and students of HESAS, especially in times of transition and change.
‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid.’ John 14:27
