A prayer for our American healthcare heroes
To our neighbors, friends, and community members who are healthcare workers,
For leaving your home in a time of social distancing. For doing your sacred work of healing. For subduing your inevitable fears to do your job.
For your minds that find treatments. For your hands of healing. For your hearts of service.
For the sacrifices you have made throughout your lives and careers and for those you are making today and tomorrow.
May God grant you strength in your weary hours. May God grant you wisdom for the tough decisions you must make. May God grant you patience for when what you need is not readily available. Most of all, may God grant you and those you love health and long life.
May you be blessed to rejoice in the recuperation of your patients and may we all be able to celebrate together the end of this pandemic (in crowds of the size of our choosing).
We do not need to wait for Time Magazine’s 2020 Person of the Year for we know you are it.
Please let me know how I can help you and your family through this most challenging time.
(Day 3 of social distancing.)
