A Doctor's Prayer
we thank you today that
through your Son, our Saviour,
we receive new life and hope.
Lead us by your Spirit in our work today.
Enable us to fulfill our medical calling
in love, wisdom and integrity.
Give us knowledge and diligence
in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.
Help us to bring comfort to the anxious and sorrowing.
Free us from selfish ambition.
Grant us sincerity in all that we say and do.
Strengthen us to persevere in the face of fatigue.
Keep us always mindful of your redeeming purpose
and maintain our confidence that death will finally be overcome
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
