Caregiver's Prayer


The prayer at the beginning of this post and the reading below are from my book, 100 Days to Freedom: Release From the Self-Condemnation of Overweight, published in 2016.  This was near the end of my time as primary caregiver for my mother, who had Alzheimer's.  It is entitled Doesn't He Leave the Ninety-Nine:  

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
  1 Corinthians 15:58

In every stress we face, God is with us, He is sovereign, and we can trust Him.  I am reminding myself of these truths day by day as we wait for our Covid vaccinations.  Thanking the Lord for His abiding presence with us, for His provision, and praying to stay calm and trust Him.
