PRAYER AND RELFECTION
A PRAYER FOR SELF CARE
by Janice Dames
“When you are compassionate with yourself, you trust in your soul, which you let guide your life. Your soul knows the geography of your destiny better than you do.” John O’Donohue
Our prayer for this week is for everyone to give themselves permission to be compassionate with themselves and practice SELF CARE. Self-care is not selfish, it is necessary to keep your body and soul healthy and whole. It is critical to take time out to nurture yourself, for you, your family, your loved ones and the AdZU SHS community. We offer this scripture and PRAYER FOR SELF CARE.
He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat.
Let us pray:
Loving and caring God, we lift up this prayer to you for all who are at the point of exhaustion. You Lord, who knitted us in our mother’s womb who gives rest to the weary we ask now to bless us with the ability to come away with you and rest. Lord in gratitude, thank you for all of their gifts and abilities that are keeping us safe. We pray they find peace of mind and soul. Lord we know that death comes and that too is a heavy burden to carry, we ask that they lay that burden on you, oh Holy one. We ask that you, great Physician, be a natural part of self-care. Guide us to meditate on and spend time with you. As you counseled Moses in Exodus 18 that “he would wear himself out because the task was too heavy to care for the people of Israel on his own”. Lord, we cannot do this work alone. As some struggle in isolation allow them to feel your presence.
Lord Jesus, help us all to be gentle with ourselves. To monitor the trauma that we take on during this time. Help them, help us to be and stay healthy in mind, body and soul. Lord Jesus, you rose victorious over death, you came that we might have abundant life, we thank you for abundant life, we thank you for abundance rest, we thank you for compassionate self-care, we thank you for in you we experience resurrection. Thanks be to God. Amen”
