Dear Lord, today we pray for the grocery industry and the people that work in it. This global crisis has made it clear how foundational this sector is to our existence. We ask that you would protect and uphold those who work in this industry and bring us our food. Help the producers to keep on growing and raising crops and livestock. Help the workers to not grow weary of practising proper safety protocols. Protect them from both becoming ill and spreading infections. We also ask that you would encourage them and maintain their mental health. May they sense the important role that they play at this critical point in history. Amen.
