Prayer for miners

you that 11 workers have been rescued from the mine that collapsed in the eastern province of Shandong, China. We pray for the 18
workers who remain trapped. Give rescuers efficiency, perseverance and success
as they continue their efforts. Hold back the continued hail of rocks in the
destroyed mine shaft, so those at risk can be rescued soon and without injury.
Lord, we pray for miners around the world. With the ever-present threat of
cave-ins, gas explosions, fires, chemical leakage, electrocution and more, miners
face danger daily as they seek to provide for their families and bring natural
resources to the surface. Regularly convict their employers of the need for
safety and conscientiousness. Help the miners to stay alert and exercise
diligence. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
