Catholic Physician's Daily Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, help me to submit my mind and heart to you in all my actions, personal and professional, to bring Your Holy Spirit to all who are touched by my science and art, and to be available humbly to assist the Vicar of Christ, the Bishops, and the whole Christian community with the particular knowledge, skill and experience I have as a Christian physician.
O Divine Physician, help me to uphold the principles of Catholic faith and morality in the science and practice of medicine, to communicate these principles to the medical profession and to society at large, to uphold Catholic hospitals in the application of Catholic moral principles, to work with my colleagues in charity, truth, and understanding, and to work to bring others to the apostolate.
Mother of God, who at Cana occasioned the entry of your Divine Son upon His public life of compassion, mercy, and healing, intercede for us, asking especially for us the graces of humanity and of fidelity to your Son's Vicar on earth. Amen.
A Physician's Prayer
Lord, Thou Great Physician, I kneel before thee. Since every good and perfect gift must come from Thee, I pray:
Give skill to my hand, clear vision to my mind, kindness and sympathy to my heart. Give me singleness of purpose, strength to lift at least a part of the burden of my suffering fellowmen, and a true realization of the rare privilege that is mine. Take from my heart all guile and worldliness, that with the simple faith of a child I may rely on Thee. Amen.
