The Student Nurse’s Prayer

Lord, I know we go through this everyday but please give the knowledge as to why I actually wanted to go to nursing school. Give me the strength to make it through those boring lectures without falling asleep.

Please give me the patience to make it through the clinical duties with instructors that can’t just give you the right answer and on the same note, give the nurses the ability to remember what it was like to be a student and give us just a little more respect.

Give me the endurance to read all the assigned readings and be able to remember it when I am taking a test with the right answers. Give my family and friends the ability to realize I really am on the edge of insanity.

Finally, Lord, give me the vision to see that one day I will be a real nurse and I will never have to wear this ugly uniform again.

The Nurse Prayer

Dear Lord,

Please give me strength,

to face the day ahead.

Dear Lord,

Please give me courage,

as I approach each hurting bed.

Dear Lord,

please give me wisdom

with every word I speak.

Dear Lord,

Please give me patience,

as I comfort the sick and weak.

Dear Lord,

Please give me assurance,

as the day slips into night.

That I have done the best I can,

that I have done what is right.

A Prayer for the sick

the sick

Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room.

I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other that we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used.

Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was,

let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
