Via St. Martin’s Church Walsall in the UK, a very good prayer focused on the health care workers, the charities / NGOs and the military personnel involved in battling the Ebola outbreak:
Compassionate and Loving Lord, we want to give thanks and praise for all the amazing doctors, nurses and volunteers who are helping to bring the Ebola crises in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone [and Mali] under control. These are the unsung heroes and heroines who are working tirelessly, in enormously difficult circumstances, to help the citizens of these countries. Thank you for our soldiers who are now helping in Sierra Leone and for the charities, especially Medicine San Frontiers and Red Cross, who have been there since the outbreak. We pray for all the families who have experienced the loss of loved ones and especially for the children who have been orphaned. We pray that they will get the help and support they need to rebuild their lives. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
