customer service complaint

To whom it may concern, I like to think I've always had an eye for a bargain, so naturally I was excited to come across the three-for-one Trinity, 'The best a man can get. Choose Godhead three-in-one for a closer save'. However, early this month I placed an order for healing...

thank God for. nurses & midwives

When we first thought of the idea of encouraging prayer for all of those in nursing and midwifery, we hardly expected the response we got. Our initial idea was simply to encourage as wide an audience of believers as we could to pray for those in the caring professions and...

Testimonies

where will your prayers take you next?

I remember when I was a young student reading about Mother Theresa; she was asked how she kept going doing the work that she did in Kolkata amongst the beggars and homeless. She said that she saw Jesus in the children deserted by their families, Jesus in the sick and...

colleagues forever changed by Jesus

My friend Jenny and I felt God call us to pray for our workplace back in 2006, so we began to pray together in our lunchtimes once a week. We were open with our team about what we were doing. Some of our colleagues even asked for prayer! After a...

the Lord's Prayer in action

I've recited it countless times, and I can probably reel it off half-asleep post-nights, but as I travel into work today, I slow my pace a little and reflect on the gift of the Lord's Prayer [1 ] in my own words. Heavenly, holy, Dad! I need you close and...

It's the 14th century before Christ A man cautiously pulls back a curtain Steadies his nerves Breathes deep and steps in. Friends who aren't allowed to come in Wait outside They crane their necks Hoping to catch the jingle of the bells he wears The jingle that tells them 'He still moves' That the priest has...

our eyes are on you

As winter has progressed, has it sometimes felt like you are part of an under-staffed and under-resourced team of nurses sent to face a vast army? Well, if you have felt that pressure, you are not alone. I have been encouraged recently by the account of Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah...

time to lay on hands

What's the first thing you do when you start your shift? When I started working in ITU, I quickly learned the routine: handover, bed-space check, patient assessment. Your day can't begin in earnest until those three things are done. So much to check - the ventilator settings, the parameters on...

found sleeping

I love Jesus' disciples and their raw humanity. With their flaws and failings. I love that they are chosen by Jesus; hand-picked by him, in spite of their wonderfully relatable lack of vision and focus. I can hear Jesus' exasperation as he finds them sleeping for the third time and...

moving into research

If you feel that hospital clinical work no longer suits you, why not consider shifting roles, instead of leaving nursing or midwifery altogether? It was a few years ago now when having dinner with a few close nurse friends from university that I realised I was the last one of...

Editorial

editorial: prayer

We don't need to look further than Jesus himself to realise that prayer is all about relationship with our Heavenly Dad. It's us turning to him in our need, with all our hopes, for direction and strength. This is not a technique, a duty, or a religious exercise. Rather what...
