Every third Sunday of October, churches around the world celebrate St Luke’s Day or Healthcare Sunday. This is a day when Christian communities celebrate, support and pray for the healthcare workers in their midst.

Health is not just physical, it’s spiritual, emotional environmental, social, financial, intellectual and occupational too. All of society needs to be involved in keeping us all healthy and supporting healthcare workers in all that they do. Churches have an important role to play in healing society’s ills, exemplified by the ministry of Jesus, who said,

“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.”Matthew 10:8


Join us as we give thanks to God for the healthcare workers who have seen us safely through COVID 19 and who continue to give hope to millions through their tireless and selfless service. Like we are called to discipleship with Christ, so too are healthcare workers called to this noble path. Let’s join hands with them in helping our society achieve holistic health.

Participate in Healthcare Sunday by:
• Reaching out to healthcare workers in your community and inviting them to your Healthcare Sunday service
• Crafting sermons to include a health and healthcare related theme
• Providing space for testimonies from healthcare workers about their work and calling
• Making special prayers for healthcare workers
• Making special prayers for the sick and infirm
• Inviting a healthcare worker to share about their prayer needs and challenges in the work environment

Let us Pray:
• That God will strengthen healthcare workers in their work with the frail, sick and dying.
• That God will help Christian healthcare workers realize their Kingdom calling, as they live out their faith in the context of their professions
• That God will grant them wisdom to share their faith wisely and appropriately, in their spheres of influence
• That He will under-gird their advocacy efforts in the workplace, e.g. against corruption and unethical practices
• That He will grant churches the wisdom needed to develop a theology that is appropriate to serve marketplace leaders, such as those in the health sector
• That God will create collaboration opportunities between community workers and healthcare workers
