A Caregiver’s Prayer for Divine Understanding
Living God, You are aware of every tear my loved one cries and the pain they live with daily. I can only imagine what they are experiencing, but You Lord can feel their pain and suffering. Grant me a divine understanding so I can anticipate all of their needs. A deeper understanding will also help me to love just as they are, just as You love me, unconditionally. Provide me a window into their life, Lord, so that I can serve them in the best possible way.  Amen.
