Dear Lord the Great Healer,
We kneel before you, since every perfect gift comes from you.
We pray, give skill to our hands,
clear vision to our minds
and kindness and tenderness to our hearts.
Give us singleness of purpose,
strength to lift up a part of the burden
of our suffering fellow men,
and a true realisation of the privilege that is ours.
Take from us all pride and worldliness,
so that with the simple faith of a child,
we may rely only on you.
