It is the Flu Season…

New Jersey is in the thick of flu season. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), New Jersey is among a handful of states getting hit hardest in the country.

Let us pray for those who are ill, hospitalized, missing work, and those caring for those who are infected.

Merciful God, we pray for those who are sick, ill, hospitalized because of the flu and other infectious illnesses. We pray for those who are need of healing. Mend their wounds, soothe fevered brows, and make broken people whole again.  Guide the nurses, doctors, and others who attend those in need. Use their skills to restore them to health and joy for the service of Christ our Savior. Amen.
