Story Behind the Art
A doctor commissioned this verse for his office. I added the verses around the outside and "In Jesus' name". Truly, Jesus is the Great Physician and we need to bring our needs to Him first. He is the source of all healing, including using skilled doctors to be involved in the process. This is a great prayer for doctors!
Lord, I pray You light my mind to know the remedies for my patients' ills, and touch my heart to feel compassion for their suffering. When I reach out my hand to treat the sick, let me heal them with a portion of Your wisdom and Your mercy. And when I cannot heal them, let me lead on to a deeper faith and understanding in Your love, In Jesus' name, Amen.
And Jesus answering said unto them, "They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Luke 5:31, 32
