Prayer for Monday 9th June

Today, from our church family, we pray for Anne McGowan.

Loving Father, we pray today for all who now live in a residential care home or nursing home.  We pray particularly for Daisy Bank Annexe, our local respite care home.  May all residents receive the care and support necessary to make them feel secure and happy.  May all carers, managers and health care professionals receive the training and resources they need to deliver the best possible care to those in their charge.  May they fulfil their duties cheerfully, patiently and lovingly.  Bless and support those who are preparing to go into a home, their families, friends and their social workers.  Strengthen those finding it difficult to settle into a new environment with new staff and unfamiliar routines to understand.  Lord, be present with all who are anxious or afraid and help them to trust in your love. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
