Is It Appropriate for my Doctor to Pray with Me?
My doctor offered to pray with me before my surgery. I was quite taken aback, as I do not pray regularly even though I'm a spiritual person. Honestly it made me slightly uncomfortable that my doctor feels like he needed to ask God to help him with the surgery. He is a board-certified doctor, and a really nice, normal guy, not some wacko. I'm wondering if this is common? Do other doctors offer to pray with their patients?
