Because caregiving duties require immense resources of energy, organization, perseverance, patience and faith, prayer is essential to caregivers. These prayers for caregivers are "intended as tinder to light the fire of your own prayer. They are meant to enable you to use the heat and energy of your anger and frustration in positive, healing ways. They are prayers to prime the pump of the wellspring of praise and thanksgiving within you. They are prayers to gather around you in a quiet corner of your life, to fortify you in the most difficult moments of your day, to help you to rejoice in the good that is present in any circumstance," writes Normile. "I hope this book will make your work a bit easier, more graced with praise and peace, more healing to patient and caregiver alike."
