Lord, today we rejoice that all 955 entrapped miners were freed without incident in Welkom, South Africa. We pray the incidences of high blood pressure and dehydration will be quickly remedied and all workers will quickly be restored to full health. Again, we are thankful for the good news that these workers were unharmed and restored to their loved ones after their two-day entrapment. Now, Lord, we pray for necessary maintenance in the Sibanye-Stillwater's Beatrix gold mine. We pray that the publicity from this incident will compel leaders to get everything in order, so that future incidents will not take place. We pray for protection for all miners working for the operating firm Sibanye-Stillwater. We humbly ask in Jesus’ name, amen.
