Physician's Prayer

My doctor, who is a DO, has this on his wall and had to share.  I'm not sure if this is the exact one but it was the closet I could find online - next time I'm there maybe I will write it down - it truly brings tears to my eyes of thankfulness that my doctor looks to God to help him!


O Lord, in Your wisdom and power and love, you heal the sick when all other help has failed and restore men to life after life itself is done.

I pray that You will light my mind with thorough knowledge and remedies for my patients ills and touch my heart with deep compassion for their sufferings.

When I stretch out my hand to minister to the sick, let me heal them with a portion of Your wisdom and Your power.

And when they are not to be healed, let me help them to a deeper faith and resignation in Your love.
