A Caregiver’s Prayer

Give me strength to live another day.

Elderly couple holding hands at a clinic bed

Lord, show me enough strength within me because I am very tired,
Show me patience to care for the one I love,
Show me peace of mind as I struggle through each day and night,
Show me the joy in the little things my loved one does to help me out,
Show me love when anger wants to take over my thoughts,
Show me hope when I can see no hope,
And Lord, show me kindness for those who care about me.

Do you know a caregiver? Share the prayer with them. Offer a prayer for them. Ask about how they are doing today. Volunteer to give them a respite. Perhaps you would like to light a candle for them, extending your prayer, your intercession, your thanksgiving, beyond the words you speak. ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning
