30 Days of Prayer: God… The Ultimate Physician

DAY 1: Monday, April 13

God… The Ultimate Physician

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear.” Psalm 46:1-2

As a physician on the front lines of the battle with COVID-19, it is easy to become overwhelmed, mentally exhausted, and to fall victim to fear and anxiety. I fear I will not be able to help my ill patient, or I may begin to be anxious I will contract this illness and take it home to my family. For many of us, it has become too easy to allow fear and anxiety to grip us and cause us to forget who actually is in control. God is in control and He is the Ultimate Physician. He is ever-present in every hospital room across this nation. If we listen, He is reminding us to “take courage and do not be afraid”. God in His wisdom will help us decide how to best help those who are ill. Maybe He will choose to heal us, or maybe He will bring us home to be with Him. But whatever His will, we know that is the best for us. We shall not fear!


Lord God, be our strength and our healer. Remind the medical workers to trust in you, to never give in to fear and to stay healthy. Amen.

For Reflection:

  • “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.” Ambrose Redmoon
  • When fear and anxiety come upon you, ask yourself this question… “Who is in control?”
