[Jesus said,] “Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me;
for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Matthew 11:29 (NRSV)
Heavenly Father, at [FACILITY NAME] we are feeling the strain of preparing for the [EHR NAME] implementation. Even those who are not directly involved sense the tension in the atmosphere. Help us to use this new tool, and all of our resources, for the good of those we serve.
Bless our words and actions in this time of stress. Help us find words that shed light, not just heat. Words that show respect and invite conversation. Words that heal instead of tear down. Help us grow in patience when we are in a hurry for an answer or to complete a task.
We are also aware of the many needs outside of our walls. Help us to do what we can to respond to those suffering and to be attentive to any other need that comes before us.
Finally, we ask You to stand by each of us and this ministry as we strive to provide compassionate care and hope. We depend on Your mercy and guidance. We ask for these things in the name of Jesus, who lives and reigns with You in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
CHA is grateful to St. Dominic Health Services/ Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System for sharing this prayer resource.
