Health Care Givers
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and God of all encouragement, who encourages us in our every affliction, so that we may be able to encourage those who are in any affliction with the encouragement with which we ourselves are encourage by God. For as Christ’s sufferings overflow to us, so through Christ does our encouragement also overflow.
2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-5
GRACIOUS GOD, HEAR OUR PRAYER FOR ALL WHO HAVE GIVEN THEMSELVES TO THE CARE OF THOSE AFFLICTED BY ILLNESS, INFIRMITY AND OLD AGE.
Sensitize their hearts with the compassion and benevolent spirit of the Good Samaritan that they might see and respond generously to the needs of those in their care. Strengthen them with your encouraging presence and love that they might be constant in their service even in times of fatigue and distress. Lift their spirits, bolster their resolve, grant them resilience, keep them well and guide them to wisely keep themselves well. We ask this through the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes and in the name of your Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. AMEN.
