Dear Lord, the Great Healer,
I kneel before you, since every
perfect gift must come from you.
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 fellowmen,
and the realization of the privilege
that is mine. Take from my heart
all guile and worldliness, that with the
simple faith of a child, I may rely on you.
Amen.

– Mother Teresa of Calcutta, from the Missionaries of Charity community prayer book; the prayer which is said to begin each day’s work
