A Prayer for Caregivers

Today, my heart goes out to the caregivers of the elderly, of the sick. They live in fragile worlds, and yet they go on with strength and love. May the Lord bless them as they continue in their work of bringing care, help and comfort to the people who needs them. 

Jesus said, "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
~ Matthew 11:28-30

Our Father who love us so immeasurably
You are the Healer of souls
You are the Comforter of the weary
We abide in You your presence consoles
Help those who care for others
You are with them in their journey
Ease their anxiety and fears
Show them your grace and mercy
Surround them with love
Engulf them with strength
Uphold them as they uphold the others
Keep them strong yet gentle
For your love is patience
Your love is kind
It bears all things, endures all things
Your love never ends
Your peace you bestow them
Keeps them still at all times and in every way
And there you guard their hearts
And keep their minds in you, Lord Jesus
