Assorted Prayers for Nurses

Lord, Help Me

Lord, please help me bring . . .
Comfort where there is pain,
Courage where there is fear,
Hope where there is despair,
Acceptance when the End is near, and
A touch that is
gentle with tenderness, patience
And love.

Being A Nurse
by Melodie Chenevert

Being a nurse means. . .
You will never be bored.
You will always be frustrated.
You will be surrounded by challenges.
So much to do and so little time.
You will carry immense responsibility
and very little authority.
You will step into people's lives
and you will make a difference.
Some will bless you.
Some will curse you.
You will see people at their worst--
and at their best.
You will never cease to be amazed at people's capacity
for love, courage, and endurance.
You will experience resounding triumphs
and devastating failures.
You will cry a lot.
You will laugh a lot.
You will know what it is to be human
and to be humane.

A Nurse's Prayer
by Teri Lynn Thompson

Let me dedicate my life today
To care of those who come my way.
Let me touch each one with healing hands
And the gentle art for which I stand.
And then tonight when the day is done,
Let me rest in peace if I've helped just one.

Nurse's Prayer

As I care for my patients today
Be there with me, Oh Lord, I pray.
Make my words kind—it means so much.
And in my hands place Your healing touch.
Let Your love shine through all that I do.
So those in need may hear and feel You.



Nurses Day in Singapore

In Singapore = August 01
by elsewhere = May 12

Nurses Day ~ by Author, Devin Jeyathurai, 2000

Originally celebrated as Nurses Week from 1965 and changed to Nurses Day in the 1980s, Nurses Day is a day set aside to honour and recognise the contribution of nurses to Singapore. It is usually marked with celebrations for nurses, including graduation ceremonies, blood donation drives, concerts, exhibitions, funfairs and charity events. Since 1990, the President has opened the Istana to nurses on this day, to thank them for the contribution to the health and well-being of the nation.

Unlike other countries, which celebrate Nurses Day on 12 May, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, Singapore celebrates Nurses Day on 1 August. This dates marks the beginning of the development of nursing in Singapore.

Up till 1885, healthcare in Singapore was poor. While there were several hospitals (in the Pearl's Hill, Sepoy Lines and Kandang Kerbau areas), there was a lack of nurses to support the work of the doctors. The call went out for nurses, and was answered by nuns from the local French Convent, who started nursing at the General Hospital at the Sepoy Lines on 1 August 1885.

On 1 August 2000, President Mr S R Nathan inaugurated the President's Award for Nurses, given out every year to up to three outstanding nurses.
