National Nurses Day Prayer

May 6th begins National Nurses Week. Thanks to nurses everywhere for the professional, compassionate care and everything you do for your patients and their families.

Life-giving God, who alone have power over life and death, over health and sickness: Give power, wisdom, and gentleness to those who follow the lead of your servant Florence Nightingale, that they, bearing with them your presence, may not only heal but bless, and shine as lanterns of hope in the darkest hours of pain and fear; through Jesus Christ, the healer of body and soul, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


A prayer for the Feast of St. Luke the Physician

“Honor physicians for their services, for the Lord created them; for their gift of healing comes from the Most High, and they are rewarded by the king.” Ecclesiasticus 38:1-2.

Almighty God, who called Luke the Physician, whose praise is in the Gospel, to be an Evangelist and Physician of the soul; May it please you that, by the wholesome medicines of the doctrine delivered by him, all the diseases of our souls may be healed. Through the merits of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
