O my God teach me to receive the sick in Thy name. Give to my efforts success for the glory of Thy holy Name. It is Thy work: without Thee, I cannot succeed. Grant that the sick Thou hast placed in my care may be abundantly blessed, and not one of them be lost because of any neglect on my part. Help me to overcome every temporal weakness,and strengthen in me whatever may enable me to bring joy to the lives of those I serve. Give me grace, for the sake of Thy sick ones and of those live will be influenced by them.
As I continue to prepare for my first ever day of patient care in the hospital setting, this is my prayer to the Lord. As I think about the future profession I have chosen, this is my prayer.
