On my recent vacation in India, I spent a few days volunteering at Mother Theresa’s mission in Calcutta. A certain framed prayer hanging on the wall caught my eye. It is a wonderful way to clear your head and focus on bringing healing to the treatment room. It is a Christian prayer, but I am reprinting below the most universal parts so that people of all faiths can enjoy it:
I pray give skill to my hands,
Clear vision to my mind,
Kindness and meekness to my heart.
Give me singleness of purpose,
Strength to lift up a part of the burden of my suffering fellow men,
and a true realization of the privelage that is mine.
Take from my heart all guile and worldliness,
that with the simple faith of a child,
I may rely on you
