Dafna Meir’s Prayer
As I posted yesterday, Dafna Meir, victim of a brutal terror attack that claimed her life, was a beautiful soul. A nurse and mother to 6 – including 2 foster kids – she cared so much about others, regardless of their nationality or religion.
This is evident from her own blog (translation provided by Moshe).
that you entitle me to distribute medication to those of Israel, thy nation, who need to be rescued,
and also to those of the other nations who are receiving the treatment of your faithful messengers,
that keep up the holy work, day and night, on the Sabbath days and on holidays, tirelessly,
Please grant me the privilege to understand, to know and to always remember that the medicines are your gift, and act under your vocation,
Please grant me the privilege to observe and rejoice in the beneficial effects that these medicines, which I will distribute with mercy to the ill patients, will have,
Please grant me the privilege to distribute the medication while being aware and fully concentrated, and while understanding the underlying therapeutic mechanisms by which the medicine affects the disease,
Please grant me the privilege to notice any and every mistake and error, of my own and those of my friends in the line of medication distribution, and to act rapidly to correct it, before the medicine reaches the body of the ill patient,
Please grant me the privilege to always act humbly, to learn and teach others of the successes and failures in medication dispensing,
Please grant me the privilege to distribute medicine to ill patients from the state of my own robust and excellent health, and to give thanks for the fact that I, myself, am not taking those medications.
Please grant me the privilege to sympathize, from the standing point of my own health, with the ill patients and their suffering,
and to help them, in the very best way I can, with the tools that you give me, day after day and hour by hour
