We should also remember those serving us in grocery stores, pharmacies, the bus drivers, postal workers, police and firefighters who are not staying at home, but are serving us.
O Lord our heavenly Creator, who sent your Son not to be served but to serve:
we ask you to bless all who, following in steps of Jesus, give themselves to the service of others;
that with wisdom, patience, and courage,
they may minister in his name to the suffering, the friendless, and the needy;
for the love of him who laid down his life for us, your Son our Savior Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
