How to make a (Christian) physician's day


Today I got to pray with a patient in clinic. It's the first time I've gotten to pray with a patient since I got my MD and left Loma linda. She had mentioned during the visit that she went to church so at the end of our encounter I asked her if she'd like to pray with me. She was very happy to. It made my day.

Just wait until you have a terminally ill patient pray for you in your presence. Very humbling.

If you will be in the area this weekend. The men at HALC will have a breakfast that will be fabulous. The breakfast begins at 8:00 am on Saturday the 16th of July. The fellowship is great.

Hello U.P., I've had very sick patients pray for me in the past which was a very powerful experience.

Jacob, I might be home this weekend. If I am I'll contact you. If you're going to the breakfast I'll go too.

Unless something out of the ordinary happens, I plan to be at the breakfast.

It's wonderful that you were able to pray for a patient, and that patients pray for their doctors! This is something I have not considered in the normal course of events. Thank you for sharing this experience!
