ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Thursday is the national day of prayer and it's also nurses day. The two coincided at Phoebe Putney hospital with a blessing of the hands.

The nursing staff at Phoebe was blessed by members of the clergy from around Albany.

RN Tracey Jones said, "I think it's a great opportunity to come down and just take a moment and realize that God is still in charge."

Pastor Daniel Simmons said, "For them to come here today to be blessed restores what was lost and I believe it encourages them to go back and do even greater work."

Dozens of nurses will have their hands blessed by community clergy and Phoebe Pastoral Associates this week.
