Physician’s Prayer

DEAR LORD,

THOU GREAT PHYSICIAN

I KNEEL BEFORE THEE

SINCE EVERY GOOD AND PERFECT GIFT

MUST COME FROM THEE. I PRAY

GIVE SKILL TO MY HANDS,

CLEAR VISION TO MY MIND,

KIDNESS AND SYMPATHY

TO MY HEART

GIVE SINGLENESS OF PURPOSE,

STRENGTH TO LIFT ATLEAST

A PART OF THE BURDEN

OF MY SUFFERING FELLOW – MEN

AND A TRUE REALIZATION OF THE

PRIVILEGE THAT IS MINE

TAKE FROM MY HEART ALL GUILE AND

WORKDLINESS THAT WITH THE SIMPLE

FAITH OF A CHILD I RELY ON THEE
