A Patient's Prayer

Eternal God, source of healing,
Out of my distress I call upon You.
Help me to sense Your presence
At this difficult time.

You have already sent me gifts of Your goodness:
The skill of my physician,
The concern of others who help me,
The compassion of those I love.

I pray that I may be worthy of all these,
Today and in the days to come.

Help me to banish all bitterness;
Let not despair overcome me.

Grant me patience when the hours are heavy;
Give me courage whenever there is hurt or disappointment.

Keep me trustful in Your love, O God.
Give me strength for today, and hope for tomorrow.

To Your loving hands I commit my spirit -
When asleep and when awake.

You are with me; I shall not fear.
Help me, O God, in my time of need.
