A Nurse Prayer

Dear Lord,

I come before You today seeking Your guidance and protection as I carry out my duties as a nurse. I ask that You grant me wisdom, compassion, and patience as I care for Your precious children.

Help me to have the strength to endure the physical and emotional demands of my job. Be with me every step of the way.

Grant me the ability to see the value and worth of each person I care for. Give me the courage to speak Your truth in love to those who are suffering.

Be with my colleagues, grant us unity and respect for one another as we work together to serve our patients. Be with my patients and their families, and grant them comfort, healing, and peace.

I also pray for all those who are suffering from illness and pain. Please bring them hope and healing.

Thank You, Lord, for the privilege of being a nurse and for the opportunity to serve others in Your name. I trust in Your goodness and faithfulness. May You be glorified in all that I do.

This is my prayer in the name of Jesus, my Lord and savior. Amen.
