We thank you, O Lord, for all who dedicate themselves
to the study and practice of healing.
Bless physicians, nurses, technicians, pharmacists,
and all others who minister to the sick and suffering.
Grant them wisdom and skill, sympathy, and patience.
Give them strength when they are weary, hope when they despair,
faith when they doubt, and light when they stand in darkness.
Keep them and their families safe and healthy.
Send your holy angels to stand guard and keep watch over them.
May their names be always on the lips of your saints in prayer.
Bless them and keep them, let your face shine upon them,
be gracious to them, lift up your countenance upon them,
and give them peace.
All this we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
