Caregivers and family in crisis

Please pray for caregivers who care for their loved ones but who suffer in silence.

Caregivers walk silently around and nobody knows we are there.We pray and hope that our prayers and our loved ones are embraced by God and not forgotten.Caregivers give up their lives to help others and suffer for lack of full time employment,health insurance,life insurance and many financial burdens that can be overwhelming.We suffer physically and emotionally from the demands that we must handle.Many of the caregiver websites are in need of responses from others.I ask that everyone pray for us and our loved one and families so that caregivers can have the support we need to do our jobs with peace of mind and contentment.Please visit some of the caregiver websites where many caregivers are in need of support and love and to have their questions answered.Pray for us so that our financial burdens and isolation disappear. Finally, I'd like to say that everyone at some point will become a patient in need of care or a caregiver in their lifetime so caregiving should be everyone's concern.

Dear santuary99
I am proud of the work you and all caregivers are doing for those who are unable to care for themselves. I pray that your prayers will be answered soon.
Take heart He is listening to your silent cries for help and He will be answering your prayers sooner than expected.

Almighty Father,
Hear the silent cries of your servants who are in dire need of support financially, emotionally and spiritually. Give them a sign that everything is going to turn out alright. I ask this in Jesus name. Amen

Dear Abba Father,
Bless all your children who are ill and are in need of financial support. Please open the hearts of all those who can afford to spare a part of their wages and lead them to those who need financial help. Lay your healing hands on all those who are ill and if it's your will, let them get well soon. I ask this in the Lord's holy name. Amen.

Thank you for your prayers. It has been very tough to be a caregiver for the last 14 years. I have given my money, my health and my life to it. It is very hard.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for all you do. Thank you for the caregivers that you provide.
Please Lord Jesus touch every caregiver; give us the patience, tenacity and sweet spirit that is needed. Support us as we give of ourselves. Help us as we do without time alone, dates, and most importantly those of us who can not be at church to worship with other believers because we are need to be home caring for a loved one. Bless us where we are at. Show us that even though at times we feel "alone" that You are there you know what we are going through.
Help us as we tenderly care for those around us.
And Lord, I pray that you will motivate other loved ones and family members to get more involved in caring for their relative that is in need. All praises to your name. Amen

I'm a caregiver also with Hospice.I pray for everyone that comes in the doors of our Hospice house.If you are having difficulty caring for a loved one or just need a break there are many organizations out there that may help you.Most hospitals have homecare-aides that come to your home to help out and give you the desperatly needed rejuvenation time.Or you may look into Sr.Disabled services,they are another good option.I'm sure there are others but off the top of my head that's it. I pray that the Lord will bless you all and give you the strength you need to continue on blessing your loved one with the best care possible,wether it be by you or someone else.May God bless you all.

Thank you so much for remembering those of us that sacrifice our lives for the love of another. It reminded me that I am not the only one that has had their life turned upside down. It was very humbling. I have been taking care of my son for 2 1/2 years now after a car accident almost took his life at the age of 4 months. He does have some residual problems now, but I thank God that he is alive. The serenity prayer is my foothold along with alot of requests for strength and patience. So that would be my request for all who do what I have been choosen to do. For those of us that are caregivers it was the Lord's choice for us because He believes that we are the strong ones. This isn't something that just anyone can do. And for those of us, especially parents, who tend to the needs of children a very special book that I have found is "Special Kids Need Special Parents" by Judith Loseff Lavin. I am finding it very resourceful.

Dear Lord please continue to give us faith in ourselves to contend with the trials and tribulations that come with this special life that you have choosen for us and our families. Please continue to give us the courage, strength and patience that we need to survive this in a healthy lifestyle. And please continue to provide us with any and all blessings of hope and healing that we've had and have yet to come. Amen

Thank you God for these heroes and heroines of love and faith. I pray that as their sufferings abound your grace would abound. Let their sacrifices to their loved ones affirm to their communities the dignity of the human being as the priest and exemplar of your spirit and personality. Thank you that the blessings you have brought to their families through them as your messengers of love extend far beyond their homes.

As caregivers we find ourselves involved in more than patient care. In silence as we go about our caregiving ministery, we often pray for both the patient and family members
We know that God is th Master Healer and we serve as His vehicle. This is in my opnion a spiritual gift from God.
I would like to add that at one nursing facility, if we as caregivers were having a particular difficult day, we wore a special "angel pin" especially desighned so that other staff members would know that WE nedded a HUG. It was another way tohelp ourselves and our patients.
God bless caregiers and our patients.
