Today, I wanted to give you a little prayer guide. This is not an original prayer that I thought up and wrote down but it is actually framed on one of my colleague's desk. It is just a really great, encouraging prayer to think about and actually pray before our work day starts. I hope you find it encouraging!
Heavenly Father, with your tender care and guidance, I pray you fill my heart with your love and help me pass it on to each person I may touch. Use me, through my knowledge and understanding of the injured human body, to help those whom you have given me the ability to heal. May I do this by the strength of you Holy Spirit within me.
Be with me Lord, to direct my patient care and to do no harm to those I serve. Let your will be done to each person in need.
Father, speak through my words and actions as I interact with fellow healthcare workers and my patients to further your kingdom.
Lord, I pray you give me the strength to encourage my patients, a heart to care for them, patience to understand them, knowledge to serve them, and love to extend to them. Help me to do your will only as you wish it to be done.
And Lord, I thank you for the gift of education you have given me. You have carried me through to the end and are now allowing me to use what you've given me toward your glory. I ask only that you guide me in the proper use of this education with love, strength, and compassion.
These things I pray in Jesus Christ's holy name.
