I thank You for my neurons. For my well functioning dendrites and axons.
You created my brain for the purpose of bringing glory to Your name. I do not want my brain to be conformed to the patterns of this world, instead I ask You to enter all areas of my brain that You might give me the ability to process academic and spiritual wisdom from your Holy Spirit.
I believe that you created my inner most being and that my brain is fearfully and wonderfully made by your hand.
Lord I repent of all the times I have not regarded my brain and my learning abilities as a gift from You. I ask you to forgive me for the negative thoughts and words that I have spoken against my own brain and learning abilities.
I repent of trying to solve my learning problems through my own efforts rather than turning to receive your love, grace and healing touch first.
I pray that I will not have a Spirit of fear about learning new things. I accept your gift of the spirit of power, love and self-discipline into my brain.
Give me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation that I might succeed in school and to know You better.
Thank you, Lord, for using me. For choosing me.
Thank you for blessing me with Your bounty. Your favor. Your love.
I feel more peaceful and fulfilled than I ever have in my entire life.
I am learning so much. Growing so much.
You are so good to me, Lord Jesus.
I don’t deserve Your love, Your grace, Your favor nor Your blessing.
Yet, you still love me.
Your little doctor in the making,
One thought on “Thank God for Your neurons”
Hi! I recently started a blog/diary in order to document my life as a medical student (I was accepted merely 3 days ago!) and I’ve been searching around for inspiration and other like-minded bloggers on this site. As a Christian, I found this prayer very touching and relatable and it just gave me hope about my own future in medical school and serving God through this career He has blessed me with. Anyway, I just wanted to say keep up the good work! And God bless you 🙂
