A young Medical student's suplication

Hello Lord
Its me again. Seems like a long time since we last spoke
Friends should not be so long silent, but so much has happened Lord.
Good and bad, trouble and joy, so much Lord, but if I am not a better man, I am different.
Different for all that has transpired
I'm tired Lord, my body , my mind-
My soul cries out and I reach out but nothing-
Nothing but silence and the sight of a thousand expressionless faces do I behold-
All in a day Lord I run , I breath and I think-
O Lord give me strength to learn , to do and not to judge  least I too be judged b some higher court.
Help me my friend to find beauty where there is filth, charity were there is deprivation and love were there is emptiness

But more important Lord help me to understand my fellow man, to feel as he feels, and to make him whole.
To this end Lord shall we not go hand in hand , for you know me so very well and we have traveled this path once before
 Not as strangers but as old friends
