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 HAND, CLEAR VISION TO MY MIND,

KIDNESS AND SYMPATHY TO MY HEART.

 

GIVE ME SINGLENESS OF PURPOSE,

STRENGTH TO LIFT AT LEAST A PART OF THE BURDEN

OF MY SUFFERING FELLOW MEN

AND A TRUE REALIZATION OF THE RARE PRIVILEGE THAT IS MINE.

 

TAKE FROM MY HEART ALL GUILE AND WORDLINESS,

 THAT WITH THE SIMPLE FAITH OF A CHILD I MAY RELY ON THEE.
