Prayer for Doctors Wisdom
Lord, you are the great Jehovah Rapha, the “God who heals," the Great Physician! We thank you for blessing so many men and women with the gift of healing knowledge and the desire to help all who come to them needing and wanting answers and solutions to their illnesses.
We ask you Father to infuse them with the wisdom and clarity to listen carefully to their patients’ symptoms so they’ll be able to deduce the appropriate medication and treatment for each one. Lord, we also ask for the doctor's awareness that their successes aren’t based on their own greatness for fear that they become prideful and less compassionate. Instead, Jehovah Rapha, we ask that they would acknowledge you as the Creator of our magnificent bodies and the giver of all skills, discernment, and wisdom as they determine how to treat sickness and disease.
We pray that they would seek wise counsel and take the time to do research when they’re not sure of the correct treatment. Please give each doctor the determination and will to arrive at the best possible outcome for their patient's health and wellbeing.
The Bible tells us in James 1:5 that “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” We pray that our doctors would humbly ask you Lord for direction and clarity in the way they should go. Amen
Prayer for Doctors Personal Life
Dear Lord, forgive us when we forget that our doctors have lives outside of their office and remind us to pray for their family and relationships. Difficulties at home cause distractions for everyone, so Father please give us patience when our doctor is less compassionate than we expect. He or she has a heavy responsibility and may have had a bad morning or situation at home. Let us be sensitive and compassionate ourselves.
Lord, we do pray for our doctors’ families who have to share him or her with the demands and emergency needs of patients, sometimes in the middle of the night or on a holiday. Bless these families Father with understanding and love for the difficult profession of their loved one. We pray that those who love and care for our doctors make their home a pleasant retreat to return to at the end of the day for refueling and rest. Let it be a safe place and a change of pace from their stressful day where they can regroup and prepare for the next day’s busy schedule.
