A Physician's Prayer

By Rabbi Eric Weiss

God, uniquely created in Your image, I have used my gifts and talents, my training and experience, to bring my skills to support healing. As I begin this procedure/examination, may I fully appreciate that the work of my hands reflects the work of Yours. May my attentiveness reflect the trust placed in me by each patient, my colleagues, and You. May my work reflect the best I have to offer from the depth of my mind and soul. May the blessing of life and love be ever-present to my patients and myself. Amen.
