Prayers reprinted from Talking to God by Rabbi Naomi Levy
I don’t get paid much, thanked much, or noticed much. But I am here, and I know how valuable I am. I am the one who stays when everyone else goes home. I clean things no one else will touch. I watch things no one else can bear to see. I bring comfort and companionship. I listen, I hear.
I pray to You, God, for strength. When I grow weary, renew my spirit. When my patience wears thin, bless me with stamina. When I feel forgotten and alone, show me that You are near. When others treat me poorly, remind me that I am doing Your work.
I thank You, God, for giving me the opportunity to bring light into the lives of the afflicted. Amen.
