The Praying Nurse
Jayne came to work despite the nagging pain in her hip, back, and neck. Nursing is her job. She loves what she does, even if the physical demands cause chronic pain. We picked up our patient at a nursing home. She was a few days post-operative for abdominal surgery. After spending less than 24 hours at the nursing home, she developed an abscess to her abdominal wall and needed to go back to the hospital.
As we drove, I asked if I could pray with her. She said yes. I told her I just love to pray with people. I laid my hand on her shoulder and commanded inflammation, pain, and spirits to flee. She was grateful I asked. We took her to her room and helped her transfer to the bed then I went looking for her nurse. It didn’t take long. She actually found me.
