Prayers for HealthCare

This website by the Catholic Health Association of the United States offers an array of prayers for the ill, health care workers, nurses, and others. I also liked the Blessing of the Hands and a Prayer Service dedicated to health care workers and nurses.

Check out the website and be encouraged to join with others who intercede for the sick and for those dedicated to care for them.


Prayers for Nurses

Gentle and Gracious God,

You call me to purpose, sharing your ministry of healing,
to serve with a generosity of spirit,
to encourage, love, and care
to be Your heart, mind, hands and feet
throughout the health system.

You call me into your presence,
to speak words of reassurance and comfort,
to be your loving presence to patients,
colleagues and all I meet, those easy to
love and those who might try my patience.

You call me to the practice of nursing,
to look with gentleness on those who are
broken in body and spirit, to touch with
tenderness those who suffer illness or
injury, to listen with my heart as well as
my ears.

May I always trust Your purpose,
Your presence and Your gift of my practice of the
vocation and art of nursing. Amen!
