Our heavenly Father, as we begin this day, we bring your holy presence into this workplace. Grant us your peace, your grace, and your mercy as we prepare for our work today. Be with us as we practice dentistry and care for all of those who will place their trust in us.
Lord, we thank you for our many talents, skills, and opportunities you have entrusted each of us with to do this work. May we use these gifts to fulfill your will, that each of us be gracious, compassionate, and joyful servants to each other, and to all those we will care for.
Lord, grant in us the power of the Holy Spirit to be our guide as we listen, diagnose, council, and treat, so that our hearts and minds may always see and speak the truth, and that our hands may always be instruments of your love.
Also Lord, we ask that you bless our families and watch over them, each day, as we do all of this in the name of Jesus, we pray.
