A Medics Prayer
Every day I pray that I have the strength, courage and humility to do my job to the best of my ability. I pray for both the physical and mental strength so that I may accomplish what you ask of me my Lord. I pray for the courage to not walk on by or turn asway but to do the things you ask of me even if afraid. I pray for humility, to do the things I do without though of reward. My Lord I will not always have the strength courage or humility to ask these of you, so I ask them now. Stand by me and guide me when I need you the most. My Lord, help me to defend the rights of those who are unable to defend themselves, help me to give voices to those who are silenced, help me not to judge but to treat those who need me in their darkest hours.
