A Nurse's Prayer

Almighty God, Divine Healer of all,Grant me, your handmaiden strength and courage in my calling.Give to my heart, compassion and understanding.Give to my hands, skill and endurance.Give to my mind knowledge and wisdom.Especially Dear Lord,Help me always to remember the true purpose of my vocation- That selfless service and dedication to the weak and despairing in the body and spirit.In the name of Jesus Amen
