For each person in my care,

O loving and mysterious God,

Open my heart to their healing need.

Strengthen me.

Give me wisdom as you guide me

In my care for the sick.

Help me to see the presence

Of the suffering and risen Jesus

In each person and to know always

That you look at me, O Lord,

Through the eyes of the sick

And that you love each of us as we

Give and receive care from each other.
