Inspirational Nurses Prayer

  1. 4
    Hey everyone! I just wanted to share this beautiful nurses prayer I found when I was searching for nice quotes on nursing (I'm writing a scholarship essay on how I will use my career to impact society - I'm soon to be in nursing school). I hope it brightens someone's day!

    MY NURSE'S PRAYER

    When I falter, give me courage.
    When I tire, renew my strength.
    When I weaken because I'm human,
    Inspire me on to greater length.
    If doctors and patients become demanding,
    And days are too short for all my duty,
    Help me remember I chose to serve,
    To do so with grace, and spiritual beauty.
    In humility, Lord, I labour long hours,
    And though I sometimes may fret;
    My mission is mercy.
    Abide with me, that I may never forget.

    Thank you all for your kind responses! I can't wait to be a nurse and work alongside such kind souls! I'll look and see if I can find a prayer for the sick, Bubblemist. May God bless you all! :heartbeat :angel2: :heartbeat

    Hi Bubblemist2422! I just wanted to post these two prayers for the sick I found. I hope you and everyone else finds them helpful! :heartbeat

    Prayer for the Sick

    Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight, and give your angels charge over those who sleep.

    Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ.
    Rest your weary ones.
    Bless your dying ones.
    Soothe your suffering ones.
    Pity your afflicted ones.
    Shield your joyous ones.
    And for all your love's sake. Amen.

    -Saint Augustine

    And:

    Prayer for the Sick

    Dear Jesus, Divine Physician and Healer of the sick, we turn to you in this time of illness. O dearest comforter of the troubled, alleviate our worry and sorrow with your gentle love, and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden. Dear God, we place our worries in your hands. We place our sick under your care and humbly ask that you restore your servant to health again. Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge your will and know that whatever you do, you do for the love of us. Amen.

    Thats a really nice idea! I'll keep that idea in mind when I'm a nursing student. I'm going to be in a private religious school for my nursing program, so hopefully they'll be about me doing little nice things like that. Welcome to the allnurses site! :heartbeat

    A Nurse's Prayer

    Be me in the world.
    Be my voice to the deaf.
    Be my faith where there is doubt.
    Be my hope where there is despair.
    Be my light where there is darkness.
    Be my joy where there is sadness.
    Be me in the world.
    Be my eyes to the blind.
    Be my consolation to those who need to be consoled.
    Be my understanding to those who need to be understood.
    Be my healing to those who need to healed.
    Be my love to those who need love.
    Be my forgiveness to those who need to be forgiven.
    Be my death to those who need me.
    Be me in the world.
