Saturday, August 12

Today concludes National Health Center week. President Joe Biden issued a proclamation regarding federally funded community health centers to “celebrate their dedicated staff and recommit to providing the resources these vital centers need to continue protecting the well-being of the American people.“

“Time and again, evidence reveals that health centers make a powerful difference in the communities they serve,“ the president stated. “They help bridge a critical gap in access to lifesaving prevention and treatment.“

He continued, “This week, we thank the heroic health center staff on the front lines of improving lives.  We acknowledge your sacrifice and courage, especially at the height of the pandemic.  We are grateful for your daily work that saves lives and protects the future of our country.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his healthcare advisors as they devise programs to support community health centers.
  • For wisdom for U.S. officials as they serve in the various federal health departments.
  • For healthcare professionals at all levels of patient care and interaction to be discerning in their treatments.
