Prayer for those who work for healing

God of compassion,
who in Jesus Christ healed the sick,
Bless all who continue your work of healing.
Enhance their skills, and deepen their understanding,
that through their ministry
those who suffer may be restored to fullness of health.
Strengthen those who work among the sick:
give them courage and confidence in everything they do.
Encourage them when their efforts seem futile
or when death prevails.

We give thanks for those who are caring for those are ill.
Grant them strength, rest, compassion and wisdom.

In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
