I can't tell you how happy I am that this forum has been created. I'm still learning my way around since the upgrade.
I was hoping the Christian nurses on this site could post some of the scriptures they read that has helped them in the hospital, school, clinicals ect. The power of prayer and reading certain scriptures have empowered me through nursing school
& in my new career. I also encourage us to pray not only for one another, but for our patients, managers, administrators, and those that try to do us harm as this is my new commitment this year.
So I will start.........
Mark 11:24- "Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, & ye shall have them." (KJV)
I read this scripture everyday & wrote it on my white board while preparing for the NCLEX
Matthew 5:44 " But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully persecute you." (KJV)
Matthew 5:46- " For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? (" (KJV)
I'm guilty of praying mostly for those I love, but my new mission is to devote more prayer to those I don't know very well & even people that mean me harm. Its easy to pray for those I love. This is great when dealing with a difficult co-worker/ patient
Galatians 6:17 "From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus." (KJV)
Another member of allnurses.com referred me to this scripture, this is my new favorite scripture
I hope these scriptures empower someone else as they have done in my life. I look forward to reading some that encourage other nurses and being encouraged

I love Psalm 139 and I think it is wonderful to add to your everyday prayers. I always had Matthew 25:40- I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me. In my mind while trying to get through nursing school and just remember that every person I was caring for was like caring for Jesus
God bless you all!!
