11 Powerful Prayers for Nurses During A Global Health Crisis


Nursing is one of the hardest jobs in the world. Being exposed to a lot of things, most nurses struggle to keep up with the stress and anxiety they experience at work. This leads to burnout and nurses leaving their jobs.

For some nurses, saying a prayer helps. It gives them hope and allows them to keep a positive attitude not just about work but their lives, too.

Here’s a collection of wonderful prayers for nurses.

Dear Lord,

The world is in crisis today and nurses are being strongly challenged. Help them to be the best nurses they can be despite the situation.

Bless them with courage so that they can face the challenges head-on. Bless them with a kind bedside manner so that they can care for their patients with respect and understanding. Guide them in providing expert care while ensuring the comfort of their patients.

Lord, let nurses be the source of strength for their patients and families. Let them be each other’s light in this difficult time. Fill them with energy so that they can power through their shifts. Shower them with love which they can give to every person under their care.


As nurses care for their patients today, Oh Lord, be there with them. Let their words be kind and fill their hands with Your healing touch. Allow everything they do be filled with love so that through them, people will feel and hear You.


Lord, keep our nurses strong and healthy in every area of their lives. Give them the physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort they need during this challenging time. Protect them, their families, children, and everyone under their care.

Lord, help them to not grow weary in doing good. Do not let them doubt themselves and their purpose in life. And when they start breaking down, lift them up oh Lord.

Bless their hearts and fill them whenever they start coming close to being empty.


Dear God,

Today, there are a lot of nurses who are in dire need of support. They are tired and exhausted in performing their duties. They are underappreciated, overworked, and not being protected enough.

Help nurses endure long hours. You know the sacrifices they make for everyone else and so please, we pray, bless them. Fill them with hope, give them the strength to carry on, and sustain their health. Allow them to refresh themselves and rely on You. We ask that you give them good health as they care for the health of others.

We pray for this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Almighty God,

We lift up our nurses as they go through difficult times. Guide their hands and minds in caring for their patients. Bless them with the understanding and knowledge they need in this situation.

We also ask that you bless them with courage. Give them a sound mind as they make decisions. Bless them with the grace and wisdom they need to provide the best care possible.

We pray for all nurses, physicians, and healthcare providers working hard to support their patients.


Dear Lord,

As I care for my patients today, be with me.

Fill me with courage and understanding as I approach each one of them. Let me be a source of strength for everyone under my care and their families.

Bless me with knowledge, skills, and understanding so that I can provide the best care possible to my patients. Oh Lord, help me comfort them. Allow me to be a reflection of Your love.

And when I am starting to feel weary, be there for me. Help me remember the purpose of my vocation so that I may continue serving others.


My God and my Father, I thank you for giving me the courage and the resilience to help people in their time of need. To contribute to my community and to my country, to help overcome this challenge, to be in the frontlines, with your grace. Bless me with your wisdom and strength as I continue to care for the sick, despite fear, despite fatigue. My faith is resolute as I fulfill my duty each day with your guidance and your love. Amen.

Dear Lord,

As the threat of this crisis challenges our way of life, I pray that I can bring comfort to those who are ill and help them battle this terrible disease. Show me how to instill hope while providing my patients with the best care to the best of my ability. Give me strength and energy, so I can continue to serve those who need me. I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.

Dear Almighty Father, help me to perform my duty as a nurse with bravery and compassion. During this period of uncertainty, allow me to possess an unbreakable spirit to do my job with proficiency so I can help save lives.

Now more than ever, I need your light to guide me in this ordeal, light which I will pass to those losing hope. Let me have the vigor to work more so that I can do more for others. Strengthen my body, mind, and soul so that my patients can lean on me for healing and support.

That we ask in the name of our savior, Jesus Christ.

God, please keep me and everyone in the frontlines safe as we offer everything that we are to overcome this crisis. We all need to be strong and fearless for our patients, our friends, and our family. Shower us with your unwavering love so that we are lifted whenever we are on the verge of exhaustion and despair. Help us see it through so that we remain strong for those who need us, in your name, our Almighty God. Amen.

As I care for those afflicted, I pray that my actions will create a difference to foster healing, my words to encourage and soothe the sick’s delicate body and weary mind.

In my hands, grant me your healing grace, dear Lord. Let your immeasurable love shine through everything I do. So those who are suffering may feel your divine grace.
