The Caregivers Prayer by Shelia Gosney

"Father, today I come asking for a fresh wind of grace from You. Lead me and guide me in this role of caregiver for the one I love. Let me gather strength from You hour by hour. Let me graciously take assistance from others when they offer. Grant me wisdom from You for any new issues I may face today. Remind me when I need a break so I can take care of myself as well. May I remember that I will sometimes get tired and the only perfect Caregiver is You. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
