Thursday, May 4 is National Day of Prayer

Thursday, May 4 is recognized as a National Day of Prayer.

CHI St. Vincent and CommonSpirit Health were founded by people of courage and faith. While prayer and reflection has been a key part of our culture from the start, it remains just as important today.

Praying for our communities and leaders, our patients and families, and every colleague and caregiver is vital. So we invite you to pray for our health care ministry and beyond.

In recognition of this day, we lift up the many needs of CommonSpirit using this prayer:

Holy God, we pray for CommonSpirit Health. Pour out your grace that we may make your presence and goodness known. Sustain us and make us resilient, so our mission to improve health may flourish. Bring comfort and healing to our communities, to those who are vulnerable and to all whom we serve. For every caregiver, administrator and leader, we give you thanks: Provide us with the gifts, the resources and the perseverance to live out our calling and embody the values of Compassion, Inclusion, Integrity, Excellence and Collaboration. Amen.
