Kathy Smith of Northside Baptist Church said the goal is to pray every few minutes for health care workers. Smith added that they gave out 1,000 gift bags to local health care workers.

“It is all about sharing God’s love,” Smith said. “We pray for them daily to have patience, wisdom and knowledge for their patients. Most of all, we want them to know our Lord and Savior, so they can share the love of Jesus to their patients.”
