Nurse's Prayer(s)
Here is a collection of different "Nurse's Prayers" that I have come across over the years. I hope you enjoy them.

Nurse's Prayer

O my God, teach me to receive the sick in your name.
Give to my efforts success for the glory of your holy name.

It is your work: without you, I cannot succeed.

Grant that the sick you have placed in my care may be abundantly blessed, and not one of them be lost because of any neglect on my part.

Help me to overcome, every temporal weakness, and strengthen in me whatever may enable me to bring joy to the lives of those I serve.

Give me grace, for the sake of your sick ones and of those lives that will be influenced by them.


A Nurse's Prayer

Let me dedicate my life today
to the care of those
who come my way.

Let me touch each one
with healing hands
and the gentle art
for which I stand.

And when tonight
when the day is done.
Oh, let me rest in peace
if I have helped just one...

Teri Lynn Thompson, RN

A Nurse's Prayer

Give me the intelligence, intuition, and knowledge to Assess.
Give me the reason, rationality, and understanding so I may Plan.
Give me energy, agility, and tenderness during Implementation.
Give me the wisdom, perception, and fairness to Evaluate.
Most of all Lord, give me Patience, Compassion, and Kindness for all people.

by April, GMU Nurse

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.
