Set in a grey frame, the eloquent Doctor’s Prayer is delicately inscribed on a beautiful background. The elegant floral motif and two peaceful doves are fitting decorations. Although reputed to originate from the great Rambam, the prayer was probably written about 250 years ago.
An outstanding gift to that special physician to whom you wish to show appreciation.
A free translation of the Doctor’s Prayer:
A-mighty G-d - before I begin my holy work to cure those whom You have created, I entreat You to grant me courage of spirit and diligence to faithfully fulfill my obligations without being blinded by personal ambition for financial gain or other benefits. Grant me to see the suffering of others and to accept each person as a human being without differentiating between rich or poor, friend or foe, good or evil. I desire to be loyal to the medical profession. Strengthen my spirit so that only truth will guide me. I know that in the weakness of a moment, I can be the cause of sickness or death to those whom You have created. Please G-d, have mercy and favor me. Strengthen my body and my soul and plant Your spirit within me.
