Abstract

Abstract: Nurses are intimately present with people who are seriously ill, suffering, and dying-giving rise to the need to cry out and give words to personal pain and grief. Practicing a regular rhythm of lament to God as found in the psalms of the Bible can assist nurses in coping with grief and prepare them to continue to care for the hurting with God's strength and hope.
