Prayer for Nurses

Heavenly Father,

We come to You today lifting up all nurses who are dedicating their lives to serving others. We thank You for the gifts and talents You have given them, and for the compassion and care that they show toward their patients. We ask for Your protection over them as they work in often challenging and stressful environments. We pray for physical strength, emotional resilience, and a deep sense of Your presence with them as they care for the sick and the suffering.

We ask that You would give them wisdom and discernment as they make important medical decisions and that they would be guided by Your truth and Your will. We pray that through their work, they would be a reflection of Your love and grace, bringing healing and hope to those they serve.

We also lift up their families and loved ones, asking that You would provide them with the support they need during this time. May they also feel Your presence and comfort in their own lives.

We trust in You, Lord, as the Great Physician and ask that You would be with all nurses, guiding and protecting them as they continue to serve in Your name.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
