Prayer #290: For Samaritan Purse's COVID Emergency Field Hospital in North Carolina
Samaritan's Purse, a Christian disaster relief ministry based in Boone, North Carolina, has opened an emergency field hospital in Lenoir, NC, adjacent to Caldwell Memorial Hospital. The hospital has 30 beds and is specialized as a respiratory care unit, with 46 disaster response specialists, including 24 medical professionals. The field hospital has been established in cooperation with five western North Carolina health care systems that are being overwhelmed with COVID patients. It opened on Thursday and has begun to receive patients.
Pray for Samaritan's Purse and for this field hospital in Lenoir. Pray that it could help to take the pressure of an overwhelming number of COVID patients off of the western North Carolina hospitals. Pray that God would use the medical ministry of Samaritan's Purse to bring God's love and encouragement to those ill with COVID-19, and that He would bring many to Himself at this field hospital.
1 Cor. 16:14: "Let all that you do be done in love."
