The physician prayer‚ Tefilat Harofeh‚ by Maimonides it is an extraordinary prayer and will make a great gift to a doctor or a medicine student when graduating.
We often speak about giving gifts to professionals and think of people in the medical and healthcare field.
Whenever we'd like to show our appreciation for a physician that helped us or gave us good advice we look for an appropriate gift for physicians. Look no further; we have the ideal gift for the Jewish and non-Jewish doctor. Modern medical practice has raised new concerns and makes conflicting demands on the practicing physician and yet it seems that the ancient physician prayer took all these into consideration a long time ago.
It is believed that the ancient Hebrew oath for the physician was written by Maimonides‚ the Rambam‚ himself a physician‚ and is still in use today. New studies have shown that though the Physician Prayer is attributed to Maimonides it probably written by Marcus Hertz‚ a German physician‚ pupil of Emanuel Kant‚ and physician to Moses Mendelssohn and appeared in print much later than the time of Maimonides in about 1793.
Many Jewish artists have illustrated this important prayer and blessing for doctors and physicians. Every artist has his own interpretation of this physician's prayer‚ Tefilat Harofe‚ traditional text. This makes the physician prayer the perfect gift for everyone in the medical and healthcare field.

In essence physician prayer reads: Almighty G-d‚ Thou Great Physician‚ I kneel before Thee. Since every good and perfect gift must come from Thee I Pray: May I never see in the patient anything but a fellow creature in pain. Please give skill to my hand‚ clear vision to my mind‚ kindness and sympathy to my heart. Give me singleness of purpose‚ strength to lift at least a part of the burden of my suffering fellow men‚ and a true realization of the rare privilege that is mine. Take from my heart all guile and worldliness‚ that with the simple faith of a child I may rely on Thee.
