I wrote this blessing primarily for healthcare professionals; however, it can be used for caregivers as well. Adjust the words to fit your circumstances and prayer. What you do is sacred work!

God, bless my hands as I
measure and administer the medicine
change the sheets
complete an assessment
wipe away residue
provide a caring touch
document a visit
hold hands
hold an instrument

Impart your blessing as I
touch
hold
carry
r
elease
point
grasp
massage
drain
c
lasp

May my hands be
love
nurture
peace
prayer
light
grace
gentleness
artistry
shelter
and blessing.

Amen.
