News reports about MRSA are quite frightening. There is a documented history of the antibiotic-resistant staph infection in Nebraska, our neighbor to the south. Please pray for protection from methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Also, it is flu season. Pray for protection from the flu and for good availability and prudent use of vaccine.
O MOST mighty and merciful God, in this time of grievous sickness, we flee unto thee for succour. Deliver us, we beseech thee, from our peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the sick; prosper the means made use of for their cure; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is, we may apply our hearts unto that heavenly wisdom which leadeth to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
