Prayer For Our Nurses - Poem by Willem VanVoorthuysen

Lord, be with all those women
who, in Your name, freely chose
their noble lives of daily sacrifice,
dispensing, in the name of Christ,
Your grace and mercy, caring for
their helpless, ill or dying fellow
human beings, while counting not
their own discomfort, pain or care.
Dear Lord, please bless them all...
