Nurse’s prayer

Give me strength and wisdom

When others need my touch 

A soothing word to speak to them 

Their hearts yearn for so much 

Give me joy and laughter 

To lift a weary soul 

Pour in me compassion 

To make the broken whole 

Give me gentle, healing hand 

For those left in my care 

A blessing to those who need me 

This is a Nurse’s prayer
