We often take for granted there is someone to help us in our time of need. When things are going well, they go unnoticed. Only when we need them do we think of them. Let us pray for those people now.
you chose to become
a servant to all,
taking on the weight of our sin,
braving ridicule, pain, and death,
so you might rescue us
and bring us to life again.
Be with those who face danger
for the sake of others,
guide and protect them this day,
and give me a heart full of gratitude for them.
Today, offer a simple gesture of gratitude to a first responder and let them know you have prayed for them.
