(Bethlehem PA USA)
(This prayer came about after 9/11 when I awoke the morning of Sept 12 and realized all the protection God had given us during the night.)
Thank You for our armed forces who protected our country during the night. Thank You for our allies and the technology we have; may it only be used for peace.
Thank You for our first responders -- 911 dispatchers, firemen and ambulance drivers. Please keep them safe.
Thank You for our police forces: national, state, county and local police.
Thank You for all the doctors, nurses and technicians who worked thru the night to relieve suffering. Every medicine is a miracle from You. Every procedure is Your guidance. May You be praised for all these miracles and please enable us to share with those who do not have them.
Thank You for our missionaries who labored to spread the Gospel. Protect them and provide for them.
Now all of these will be going to bed. Give them the rest and protection they provided for us. And especially protect their families from the problems and pitfalls of working third shift.
We pray this in Jesus' Name. Amen.
