Are you an Overwhelmed Caregiver? Do you feel like you have no time for yourself, not sure where to start or what to do next? I’ve been there and would love to help. Whether it’s a few minutes of prayer or a consultation by phone.
prayer for overwhelmed caregiver
I know I’m not alone in this. I know that you understand the weight of my burdens and the sheer exhaustion of being a caregiver. I know that you see the way my eyes tear up when I look at my mom and dad, who are both suffering from dementia at once.
I don’t know how to do this anymore. I’m so tired of being strong for everyone else while they’re falling apart around me; I’m so tired of being strong when all I want to do is collapse into a chair and sob until all my tears are gone.
Please help me find strength and courage to keep going in spite of everything that’s happening right now—in spite of my own struggles with anxiety and depression, in spite of my fear that these diseases will kill them before they ever have a chance to live life as it was meant to be lived.
Please help me remember what matters most: that we’re here on this earth together for a reason—and it’s not just for me or for them (though we need each other), but for You. Help me remember Your love for us, even when it’s hard to believe in anything else right now. Please help
I pray that you will comfort my family and me. I am overwhelmed with the caregiving responsibilities I have taken on, and I need your guidance. Please show me how to care for my loved ones without losing myself in the process.
We come before you today with a special prayer request for [name]. As you know, [name] has been very ill and is currently in the hospital. She has been diagnosed with advanced cancer and is having a difficult time recovering from her treatment.
She needs all of our prayers and support at this time, as she is very tired and has not been able to care for herself in almost two months. We ask that you guide us in helping her continue to receive the care she needs during this time of weakness, so that she can regain her strength and return home soon. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen
prayer for caring for others
I am overwhelmed.
I am overwhelmed by the weight of responsibility that I have to care for my loved one, who has been diagnosed with a serious illness.
It is hard to even find time to pray, much less to do anything else. It seems like every day there are new symptoms, new treatments and medications, and new appointments to juggle.
The only thing that gets me through each day is knowing that you are there with me. You are holding me up when I feel like I can’t go on any longer. You give me strength when my own falters. You give me hope when it seems like there is none left in the world for us anymore.
Thank you for being with me during this difficult time in my life and helping me get through it with grace and strength!
Encouragement for caregivers
I’m writing to you because I’m overwhelmed. My life is so big and busy, and there are so many things that need to be done. Please help me find the strength to take care of myself as well as everyone else. I want to be there for my children and my husband, but I also want to be able to take care of myself.
Please help me find ways to take care of my body and mind so that I can be a better person and parent. Thank you for listening!
