Often our prayers can become pleading for relief, for healing, for comfort, for answers. May our prayers become opportunities to invite the peaceful presence of the Holy Spirit to dwell with us, to ask Jesus, our Great Physician, to provide wisdom and discernment to our medical teams, and to ask God our Father for His will to be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
The Caregiver’s Prayer
-Roy Lessin, Prayers and Promises for Caregivers
Father, help me, by Your grace, to be a caregiver as You care for us—work through my hands with the touch of compassion, see through my eyes with the clarity of understanding, shine through my countenance with the light of kindness, speak through my voice with the words of comfort and encouragement, minister through my spirit with grace and patience, and give through my heart with the never-ending gift of love. Amen!Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say. 2 Thessalonians 2:17 NLT
