Nursing Project – Tanzania Sundays

The Northern Illinois Synod Council has approved the following Sundays as “Nursing Project – Tanzania” Sundays:

  • May 21
  • June 19
  • July 16
  • August 20
  • September 17
  • October 22

Congregations are asked to use one or more of the Sundays for prayer for the project and for our partners in Tanzania, and to ask for a special offering for building the nursing school. The prayer and bulletin insert below can be used for the day(s) of special emphasis.

Merciful God, your healing power is everywhere about us. Strengthen those who work among the sick, disabled, injured, and dying; give them courage and confidence in all they do. Raise up among us here, and among our partners in Tanzania educated and trained health care workers, especially nurses, that health, healing, and hope may abound among your people. Increase the ability of the Arusha Lutheran Medical Center Nursing School to meet the needs of our partners for health care workers in hospitals, clinics, and village health stations. May we share health, healing, and hope through our generosity toward you and toward others. May your people be thankful for healing grace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
