Prayer to Asklepios Before a Surgery

Bright Asklepios, father of physicians,
provider of health and healing to men,
giver of wisdom and craft to those
who attend the ill and the injured:
Asklepios, as I entrust my life
and my well-being to those who do your will,
make steady the hands of the surgeon,
make keen her eye and her wit, grant to her
all knowledge and skill required for your work.
Asklepios, friend of mankind, grant to me
the strength and resilience to recover
from all wounds and return to full good health.
