I feel that to function in nursing we all need to have belief in higher, It helps protect us. from what I dont know. I also feel that prayer can only help never hurt. Now i would never specify which higher source, but any will do per your own belief system.
Prayer still hasnt helped my golf game though. I keep praying and swinging.

But now, I have been present at a number of patients' last moments on earth, and always feel a sense of awe. I always have the feeling that something more is going on than I am able to see, and many of the dying have made comments such as "My husband is here. Do you see him?" etc. I guess I now have a non-dogmatic belief that something comes next.:angel2:
