ss spotlight - Summer 2020,  end of shift prayer

end of shift prayer

a template for spiritual self-care at the end of the working day
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)
A prayer at the end of a shift, for those in healthcare, over the COVID-19 crisis. Read the words from 2 Corinthians Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
Become aware of God's loving presence.
Give thanks for this time to be in the presence of God who loves you. Review the shift and notice your thoughts and feelings about it
  • What has been the best thing about the shift?
  • Where did you notice God's presence? - give thanks
  • What has been the most challenging thing about the shift? how did God help you get through it and give thanks
  • What pain are you holding from the shift? Lament and tell God about it - with or without words let him hold you in the pain
  • What is God's invitation to you now?
  • Bring to God your prayer for your sleep and your needs for the day.
