THE PHYSICIAN'S PRAYER
And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
Loving Lord Jesus,You have said that the sick need physicians and I therefore realise that medical ministry, which is a healing ministry, is acceptable in Your sight. Further, I earnestly believe that it is You who chose me for this ministry of healing. Lord I come to Your presence now to seek Your grace so that I may conduct myself in this ministry and I may be acceptable in Your sight!Lord You have entrusted me with a great responsibility, to show love and safeguard the lives of people who come to me seeking medical assistance. But Lord You are the Creator and nothing is hidden from You. Fill me with Your Divine love and wisdom, which alone will enable me to give the best to the people. Let Your healing hand come upon all the sick who come to me. Grant to me a compassionate heart that would consider their illness as my own and a heart that would treat my colleagues and subordinates with kindness and affection. I commit into Your gracious hands, the medical ministry that I have to perform on this day.Lead me and guide me to be swift in my service and let Your presence be with me in whatever I do. In the matchless name of Jesus, I pray.Amen.
