A Prayer For My Hospice Coworkers


Each morning I open the day at the office with a meditation. Here is a prayer I wrote for my coworkers.

Gracious God,

Creator and Sustainer;

Eternal Three In One;

In humble confidence we ask that you would hear our prayers;

Meet us where we are but don’t leave us there.

We ask that you would make us more like Jesus; drawing us closer to Him,

But we do so hesitantly, knowing we often grow most in times of struggle.

We do not ask for struggle but for the grace to meet it with your grace when it comes.

You spoke and out of nothing came everything;

there is no problem we will face that is too big for you;

and yet you have named every star;

know the grains of sand on the seashore;

the number of hairs upon our heads;

no detail of our life is too small for your care;

As we seek to serve others, we ask that you would fuel us with gratitude;

we ask for the joy of your salvation

that we may walk among the hurting, sowing your healing. 

May we breathe in Your Love and exhale your goodness. 

As it was in the beginning,

is today,

and shall be forever.
