3 Prayers For Doctors and Nurses

Here are three short prayers to pray for doctors and nurses.

Pray for All Men

We are actually command to pray at all times and for all men and women. Paul writes to Timothy “I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling” (1st Tim 2:8) and “pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1st Thess 5:18) “praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints” (Eph 6:18). Jesus taught the disciples “a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart” (Luke 18:1) through the Parable of the Persistent Widow (Luke 18:1-8). Taking these verses altogether we can say we are to always pray at all times but in the Spirit; to pray without ceasing or whenever and wherever possible; and to not lose heart, being persistent in prayer. Here are three short prayers that can help you pray for doctors and nurses as well as medical technicians in the hospital, even made more important if you or someone you know and/or love is in the hospital.

The Great Physician

Oh Holy, Mighty, Majesty, my Father, You Who are the Great Physician. If it is Your will, please intervene speedily to help my friend/family member be healed or speed their recovery. The chief goal of my pray is not for my will but to magnify and glorify Your Great Son’s Name, Jesus Christ, because it is through this Great Name that I am praying through. You are sovereign over all sickness, illness, and disease. These are nothing to You and so if it be Your express will Father, please help them supernaturally to the glory of Your Son’s Name. Please guide the doctor’s hands, bless the nurses work, and give them steady and skilled hands to do what needs to be done and for the glory of and in the Name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.

The Blessings of Staff

Righteous God in Heaven, thank You for blessing my friend/family member who is in the hospital with such a good staff and even though it seems we often have to wait, at least here we have better facilities and staff than most of the world does. Please forgive me for so often taking these things for granted. I ask you to bless the staff, the work of their hands, the people who do so much for so many. I would ask to have these blessings be especially poured out on the doctors and the nurses so that they can perform to the best of their abilities for the benefit of my friend/family member and for others. So many depend on them and I know I take them for granted so bless them and I thank You for them and in Jesus’ most holy Name, Amen.

The Blessings of the Patient

Great God in heaven, I pray for my friend/family member who is in the hospital with a serious condition. Give them comfort and strength to endure what they are experiencing right now and to help the family deal with the stresses of being removed from home, their insurance paperwork and acceptance, their employers that they’d be understanding of the missing employee, or anything else that I can’t think of that would help them all endure in this time of crisis for their friend/loved one. Please help the doctors and nurses know exactly what to do in each specific area and to find the proper diagnosis so that they can specifically treat the problem. If this means the laboratory staff, the radiologist, or any of the other staff associated with the care of my friend/family member, I ask for that in the Glorious Name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Conclusion

When I pray for someone in the hospital, whether it’s for surgery or to treat an illness or disease, I ask God to bless the patient of course but also the doctors, nurses, medical technicians, administration, insurance processing and acceptance, cafeteria workers, janitors, and about anyone else I can think of that is involved in this hospital but I don’t forget to pray for their family either because what affects one family member, affects them all.

    “Thy kingdom come thy will be done” Isn’t that a prayer jack? Doesn’t it imply (to a sane rational person not you of course) that your “gods” will supercedes all your pitiful begging? Doesn’t that relegate all your bleating to petty insignificant and contrary requests that YOUR will be done and not the will of your “god”? Doesn’t your “god” know all things including the outcome of a patient in the hospital? Where do you get off interfering with your celestial dictators desire? Maybe he “wants” that little girl to suffer from cancer and all your “prayers” are in direct opposition to his “mysterious ways”? Are you always going to be this irrational and stupid? Can you not ever see even the most obvious contradictions to your ridiculous death cult?

    • Jack Wellman

      Thanks for the page views and for the blessing (Matt 5:10-12). You are generous in that regard.

      • pud

        Not doing you favors. When do we debate? When are you going to answer my questions or will you forever be a coward?

        • Jack Wellman

          You do not debate. You call people names and insult them. Why debate you? Only to be insulted or degraded or name called again? Cowards attack the person, thinkers attack the issue. Learn this: Matt 7:6. Goodbye. and thank you again for the favors (page views & blessings, e.g.Matt 5:10-12).

          • pud

            I would gladly debate but all you have ever offered was the same repetitious nonsense. Debate, or addressing my questions, is not flinging your canned stupid “blessing” reply and scripture verse.

            I have shown you to be contradictory, irrational, delusional, deceitful and ignorant in every single nonsensical bit of rubbish you compose….fight back!

            SHOW that you hold the superior hand…demonstrate that I’m wrong instead of passively rolling over and covering yourself with your bible blanket. Be a man! Pick any topic you wish and debate me on it instead of shrinking because you get a word boo boo. Show everyone that you’re not a psychotic cult leader who makes his living lying to children. Defend yourself!

            Make any claim (of which you have many ridiculous ones) and then take me on point by point. Be a champion to your flock instead of an intellectual coward

          • Jack Wellman

            psychotic cult leader? You prove my point Pud as per your typical “ad hominem” attack. See ya!

          • pud

            You prove my points! Do you or do you not make a living indoctrinating children into you cult? Do you or do you not threaten them with unspeakable pain if they don’t comply? Do you or do you not make ridiculous claims about the nature of reality that you cannot possibly support? Do you or do you not believe in magic, spirits, demons, talking snakes, talking donkeys, unicorns, possession, angels, other worldly realms, zombies and endless other nonsense?

            Well? Are these the actions of a rational person?

            Debate me and stop cowering. Pick the topic and defend yourself. Invite your flock to witness you as their champion!

            Or are you terrified of the truth?

            It’s almost always wise not to debate people who indicate they lack self control by insulting you. Especially on the net where moderation of these ” debates ” isn’t possible. In quite a few cases the debates aren’t debates at all. They are just pretexts for people to lash out at Christians.

            I have even seen lashers offer olive branches to get people to draw near again only to lash out once more. This is especially true on the internet where people can hide their identities.

            Ridiculous ideas deserve ridicule.

            What are you doing riding my posts?

            God loves pud.
