A Nurse's Prayer

Give to my heart, O Lord... Compassion and understanding. Give to my hands, skill and tenderness. Give to my ears, the ability to listen. Give to my lips, words of comfort. 

Give to me, O Lord... Strength for this selfless service. And enable me to give hope to those I am called to serve.
