Christian Nursing 101: Spiritual Reflection: Inviting God into Our Moments

During my presentation on Reflective Practice at the NCFI Congress last year, I shared how Christian nurses can invite the Holy Spirit into their reflective practice. This can simply done through a brief prayer, “Lord, help me talk with this patient about their cancer.” Or “Lord, how an I help this patient be more comfortable?” In some ways, these burst of prayers may be common place for many Christian nurses. On the other hand, a more deeper, purposeful level of prayer or reflection is found in contemplation.

In this issue of Journal of Christian Nursing, I share some quick hints on how to bring the quietness of the mind, the openness of the spirit, and the softness of the heart experienced during prayer into the moments, the minutes and the hours of our day.

Read the article and share how you bring the richness or communion with the Holy Spirit into your work day.
