Caregiver Prayer

In the middle of September of 2010 and in the midst of the last months of my caregiving days I wrote the following prayer. Perhaps you can relate, dear caregiver:

“Lord, help me today to count my blessings and not dwell on the difficult moments. Help me not give into fear about the future, but rather trust that You will guide step by step. I don’t know for certain the turns that this caregiving road will take in the future, but You do, Lord. Grant me the ability to rest in You in peace, and at the same time grant me the ability to make wise decisions. Grant me strength to go on each day. I am tired today, Lord, but you have promised that You are with me and that I can have victory in all circumstances.”
