Hope is the thing with feathers -

Emily Dickinson

God of our weary years,
We give thanks for the healthcare workers
who have made immense sacrifices to care
for their patients. Grant comfort to those
caring for the sick and vulnerable, strengthen
them as they endure long hours, separation
from their families, and surging case loads.
Help us to sustain and fortify those on the
frontlines by remaining vigilant, staying home
when we can, washing our hands, and
wearing masks. Amen.

Where have you seen courage in the face of weariness
during this time?

Share this reflection with a healthcare worker in your life.
