Dear Lord, thank You for the great opportunity You have opened up for me to tend those that are sick and to nurse those that are ill. I pray for Your strength and wisdom to deal with the many different kinds of health difficulties and emotional problems that people are facing today.
Lord, I want to be used by You to minister to those that come into my care and pray that You would give me the right words to say to those that are hurting, and the right treatment to those that are suffering.
Help me to be able to give hope to those that are worried and comfort to those that are sorrowing. Help me to lift up those that are weary and be compassionate and tender towards those that are upset.
Help me to be both compassionate and encouraging to all who cross my path and may my life demonstrate the joy of the Lord to all with whom I come in contact. I pray that I may be a real blessing in their lives and draw me ever closer to Your heart of love, as I continue in the work into which You have graciously placed me. In Jesus' name I pray,
