A Doctor's Prayer

#Doctor #medicine #Christian #Prayer Lord this is my prayer as a doctor each and every day... Help me to always help someone in some meaningful way Let me not wounds others already hurting with lackadaisical words today Lace my tongue with mercy I earnestly pray Guide me each moment so that my therapeutic footsteps do not falter Help me so that at least one person's pain I may with your healing power alter Direct my mind to industriously take in every important detail Assist me to stay optimistic and resolute even when I fail Take control of these hands so they may do impressive works Give me the patience of a saint to solve the things that do irk. Aid me to remember that I am human but together we can accomplish much Guide my hands to always provide the most gentle and compassionate touch Remind me every day lest I forget the reason I became a physician Help me remember there are more important things than my commission Guide my lips when I speak to a patient regarding their condition Let me rejoice with a grateful heart when I can say the word remission Lord let me never forget the importance of each of the duties I perform Let me never become so prideful that I overlook the lives we can transform Lord help me to remember how important a smile can be To someone who feels hopeless and afraid and is looking to me
