I found this on one of my daily devional website and thought it was fitting for the events taking place:
Prayer for the swine flu victims
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
~ Luke 18:1
Everyone's talking about the swine flu.
But I don't hear a lot of talk about people praying
Maybe it's time for people of faith to pray for those who have been touched by this virus.
Maybe it's time for people of faith to pray for the future. Pray for God's healing hand to stave off this scourge; pray for the regions affected by the H1N1 swine virus. Pray for the doctors, nurses and others who will help the sick and injured.
Pray that virologists, epidemiologists and other environmental health professionals, the world over, can work together to contain and minimize the effects of this virus.
Pray for the little children who will lose sleep over this; and for the teachers, parents and other care-givers who will help calm their fears.
Pray that panic and disorder won't override common sense.
Prayer changes things. Let's get busy.
