A Prayer for our Nurses

Many Catholic Health Services employees are nurses…In honor of Nurses Week let’s pray for the nurses who serve in our ministry…

God of healing and hope, you sanctify the call of the nurse as one who offers themselves in the service of others.

Just as you willingly took on the lowliness of human nature and in doing so elevated it, the nurse willingly takes on often thankless and commonplace tasks. In doing so she sanctifies and makes them holy.

Remain with the nurses of Catholic health care. Strengthen them as they serve with faithful devotion. Be a strength to them that they may be strong for others. Be a comfort to them that they may comfort others, and as their shifts come to an end, be a resting place for them that they may know your love, grace, and joy.

Amen.

-Sr. Jill Bond
