Caregiver Prayer

A Prayer for the Caregiver

By Bruce McIntyre

Unknown and often unnoticed, you are a hero nonetheless.

For your love, sacrificial, is God at his best.

You walk by faith in the darkness of the great unknown,

And your courage, even in weakness, gives life to your beloved.

You hold shaking hands and provide ultimate care.

Your presence, the knowing, that you are simply there.

You rise to face the giant of disease and despair,

It is your finest hour, though you may be unaware.

You are resilient, amazing, and beauty unexcelled.

You are the caregiver and you have done well.

We may neglect to tell our caregivers how much they are appreciated as often as we should, but it is easy enough to just say a simple “Thank You.” Please share this poem with your caregiver, let them know how much you do care for all of their hard work and devotion.

If you do not have a caregiver per se, you can use this poem to thank someone who acts as a part –time caregiver such as a friend, family member or neighbor who accompanies you to doctor appointments, takes you grocery shopping or is simply there for you when you need them the most.

November is National Family Caregivers Month, proclaimed by President Barack Obama on October 31, 2014 and fully supported by CAN, Caregivers Action Network. The theme for 2014 is “Care Comes Home.”

How do you thank your caregiver for their unconditional love and support?
