My Mood: A Caregivers prayer
Default A Caregivers prayer

Dear Heavenly Father
Give me a heart full of love,
Tenderness and gentleness
That come only from above.

Help me to be kind and give me
A heart that's compassionate
Watching what I say that my
Words might not be passionate.

Help me listen with my heart
That I might feel another's pain;
Give me words that comfort and bless
And bring glory to your Name.

Fill me with courage and strength
To do my duties with diligence,
To care for my sick loved one
With longsuffering and patience.

Give me peace and contentment
In a world full of chaos
That I might serve Thee better
As long as I shall last.

Help me to be blind and deaf
To the things that upset me;
Help me to focus instead
On your world full of beauty.

The orchids in the garden,
The brush of butterfly wings
Are Nature's reminders of hope
That help my weary heart to sing.

Help me to see that caregiving
Is not a heavy cross to bear
But a precious opportunity to
Develop Christ's image so fair.

Thank you, God, for your patience
And your love that sustains;
I'll praise you forever and ever
In the name of Jesus. Amen.
