A Prayer for Caregivers

A Prayer for Caregivers

God of boundless love,
your care for us comes through the hands of others.

Today we pray for all who do the hands-on work of love:
those whose daily labor is in the home,
those who care for young and old,
those who tend bodies, minds, and hearts in need.

We pray in a special way
for all who give care but do not receive pay,
those whose work continues round the clock.
those whose labor can be dirty and demanding.

May they know their work is worthy.
May they feel your presence
as they take up their daily tasks.

May they be supported by this community
and our common call:
to love our neighbor,
to care for the least among us,
and to do unto others as Christ did for us.

In the name of your Son,
who washed feet to show love,
we pray. Amen.
