The last couple days, my boss has had me doing personal prayer along with doing a few deep breaths before I enter each room. At first, I didn’t know what to say, and what I did say felt so superficial. Today though was different. Realizing that what I said didn’t make any noticeable change to how I acted in the room but did change how I viewed my “success rate” (for lack of a better phrase). I also found a prayer today that seems to work for me, as it did led to increased peace and greater feelings of success with my visits. So, in short, not only am I feeling better about my abilities as a chaplain while I’m in the room, but I’m more positive in my reflecting back afterwards. Then again, maybe that’s something we all need to do; to put what needs to he done in God’s hands and trust that He will use us as we are needed to fulfill His purpose. I never thought about this, but a little prayer goes a long way, and all one can do is trust in its power. Anyway, until next time, may God bless you in all you do.
