April 7th, 2020

Health care staff around the globe is currently at the forefronts of the battle against the coronavirus pandemic. As doctors and nurses work night and day in crowded hospitals to save lives, thousands of people take to balconies to applaud the medical staff for the tireless efforts.

While the battle against the coronavirus is raging on, a group of nurses in Nashville has taken time out of their day to pray together on the helipad atop the hospital to bring new hope to their patients.

“When you have a few extra minutes at work you take the time to go to the Helipad and pray. We prayed over the staff in our unit as well as all of the hospital employees. We also prayed over the patients and their families during this trying time. We also prayed for all of our colleagues around the world taking care of patients. It felt good to do this with some of my amazing co-workers. We could feel God’s presence in the wind,” wrote Angela Gleaves, a nurse at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Angela shared the images of her and four of her fellow nurses praying over patients and their families on the helipad and her Facebook post has already garnered more than 1,000 likes.

“It’s just a really hard time for families as well as patients right now”

Angela and her four colleagues, Sarah Kremer, Beth Tiesler, Tanya Dixon and McKenzie Gibson wanted to bring back hope to their patients and their families amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s just a really hard time for families as well as patients right now because a lot of hospitals aren’t allowing visitors. There was a little bit of wind, and I felt like it was God pushing us to care for these patients and do what we’re trained to do.”

Their inspiring act has attracted a lot of attention and now people are asking Angela and her colleagues to pray once a week. Vanderbilt University Medical Center is treating patients with the coronavirus and Angela and her fellow nurses have a heavy workload so it’s not easy to find time to get away.

“All the outpouring of love and support of companies donating masks and people sending these donations has just been beautiful,” Gleaves said. “We see it as God working through others and wanting to bless others,” Angela said.

The photo of nurses praying on the hospital helipad has helped put back a smile on the faces of patients and people around the world gripped by the coronavirus pandemic.

“We were praying not only for our hospital, but all the patients and the families”

Doctors, nurses, and staff in hospitals across the US and the whole world work overtime to provide the best possible care to coronavirus patients and they are out biggest hope for defeating the virus which has killed thousands and plunged the world into a crisis.
