3 Prayers For Caregivers

"God of Blessing, I come seeking Your blessing on my responsibility of being a caregiver."

Caregivers are some of the most selfless people you will ever meet. They take one of the hardest jobs in the world and make sure that their patient is at their most comfortable.

Let us pray for these people that they may not get tired of doing a selfless act and that they may be guided in doing so. Here are 5 prayers. (Read: Prayer to Saint Aloysius Gonzaga)

A Prayer for Caregivers

Lord, help me remember I am doing your work.

Help me to clothe myself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forgiveness, and love.

Help me to live out and embody the fruit of the Spirit showing love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Enable me to see them through your eyes.

Help me to have compassion as you did and to follow your example.

Ease my burden and provide times of rest and refreshment.

Give me the energy necessary to fulfill my tasks.

Grant me the strength and extra grace to be able to handle things I might not normally be able to handle.

Help me not to lose my joy and give me moments of laughter.

In moments of frustration help me to be slow to anger and to refrain from letting any anger or frustration give a foothold to the devil or lead to any sin.

Comfort me as I mourn what I have lost.

Fill me up with your love so that I’m so full that your love overflows out of me–I do not have the sufficiency to pour this out of my own supply so I need YOUR supply.

Thank you for supplying all of my needs according to your riches in glory through Christ Jesus.

Help me to just be your conduit and means through which you work and help me to remember that it’s you THROUGH me.

Thank you for trusting me with this role of caring for another.

Christian Prayer for Caregivers

Dear heavenly Father,

Provide the words of comfort I can say.

Provide strength to make it through this day.

I cannot fix things or take control.

I accept this, trust in you, and let it go.

Help me listen and be present through the grief.

When I grow weary, provide me with relief.

May this experience transcend this earthly plain.

Help us find greater meaning beyond just pain.

Heal our wounded places.

Restore us to wholeness.

Provide your peace and loving presence to guide us and to hold us.

In the name of your Son, the Great Physician.

Amen

Prayer for His Blessings on Quality of Care

God of Blessing, I come seeking Your blessing on my responsibility of being a caregiver. Most days are full of important life decisions, and often I am not entirely sure what to do. There are conversations, medicines to administer, and more. Please provide me with discernment, and prompt me if I am about to make a mistake. Honestly, please just help me not to mess up. Another person is dependent upon me for help with almost all aspects of their life, and it can be overwhelming. Lord, I know that I need Your blessings in every responsibility to get me and my loved one through each day unscathed. Amen.
