A Prayer for Caregivers

May you see with tender eyes The wounds of those before you. May you hear with well-tuned ears The unspoken needs of those whose voices are muted. May you hold with gentle hands The bodies and the spirits of those you care for.
May the beauty of the soul, The strength of spirit, The wholeness of being Lead you, inspire you And let you know your own Beauty of soul, Strength of spirit, Wholeness of being.
May you know that,
As you care for others,
God cares for you, sees you,
Holds you tenderly.

Amen.
