Life and Breath So Precious

There are so many coincidences in life!

While going through my files today to search for an old letter,  I had come across a Nurses Prayer that had been given to me twenty five years ago.

It was after I took this page out of my filing cabinet and had brought it upstairs to be framed that I read today’s Daily Word Prompt;  Breath!  I knew immediately what I was going to write in my Blog today!



When I falter, give me courage

When I tire, renew my strength

When I weaken because I’m human

Inspire me on to greater length


If doctors and patients become demanding

and days are too short for all my duty

Help me remember I chose to serve

to do so with grace, and spiritual beauty

In humility Lord, I labour long hours

and though I sometimes may fret;nurse-article-20150926

My mission is mercy – abide with me

That I may never forget

    Nurses are the back bone of every facility and often go unappreciated. May I borrow this and share with the nurses I work with. Its a lovely prayer. Thank you for sharing.
