A Prayer for Caregivers

In their acts of compassion may they know you.

Compassionate God, support and strengthen all those who reach out in love, concern, and prayer for the sick and distressed. In their acts of compassion, may they know that they are your instruments. In their concerns and fears may they know your peace. In their prayer may they know your steadfast love. May they not grow weary or faint-hearted, for your mercy’s sake. Amen.

From Enriching Our Worship 2 (p.93) approved for use in the Episcopal Church in 2000

While many ask about the person who is ill or struggling, it is my experience that those who are providing care usually are equally in need of our prayers day-in and day-out. ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning
