A prayer written for the nursing professionals for give their all to their patients, so selflessly.

Dedicated, with love, to my Mom




Please grant me the stability
To thrive where illness dwells
With kindness and agility
To care for those unwell
So that I may share my passion
When the patients need my touch
Through everlasting compassion
For the souls who yearn for much.


Please grant me hope and laughter
To uplift an ailing heart
On this day and each one after
So that I can do my part
To assure the burdened loved ones
Of each patient I shall see
That I’ll do all which can be done
To my best ability.


Please grant me reassuring hands
That soften o’er the years
Give me a heart that understands
The happiness and tears
To better aid the ones in need
Whose loads are much to bear
So that wellness can take the lead –
This is my Nurse’s Prayer.

Something should be included about not becoming a mean, old, burned-out nurse. Have run into a few in hospitals as well as kind and caring ones. That's why I stay out of hospitals. Their like a box of chocolates.

A most beautiful prayer--this old medic appreciates all of the hard, often unpaid, unappreciated work nurses do. Kudos to you for celebrating their work in such a fine way!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)

BLESSED BE THE NURSES, The human children of Asclepius.

This is an enrichment of the souls. "A Nurse’s Prayer" sings
with the sounds of wisdom.

May the world pay the dues of respect to the Nurse's
