I went to Walmart last week. I was cautious and quick, but I felt covered in germs when I left. I was struck by the people stocking shelves and wiping self-checkout lanes – just doing their jobs in the middle of all the nervous shoppers.
Let’s pray today for the essential workers in our area. For our factory workers, grocery story employees, and others who are keeping us supplied with essentials. Jesus, I pray for your protection for these people who may not have an option to go to work – despite the risk. I pray that you would give them strength. I pray that our leaders and business owners would do their best to keep these workers safe. And I pray that we would be kind and cautious when we go into their space.
1 Corinthians 10:30 – “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
