Gracious Provider of Care and Protection, we remember and stand with health care providers who furnish health care for women. We give thanks for their commitment to protect the privacy of their patients and to treat them with the dignity and respect they deserve. We give thanks especially for the doctors and nurses and other health care workers who serve the reproductive health care needs of women.
We pray for an end to the rhetoric and violent acts that target health care providers, and pray for the day when health care providers, women and their families, can exercise their rights to reproductive choice in security and peace.
Help us, Gracious God, to stand together with these courageous and caring people who continue to do your holy work.
