A PRAYER FOR PHARMACY COUNCIL

Our father which art in heaven  we pray that you give The Pharmacy Council insight to lead with integrity that our decisions may reflect what

is right and good.  Keep us from shortsightedness and selfish ambitions. Help us to make decisions that strive

to be for the good of all and guard us from blind self interest.

May decency, integrity and honesty prevail..

Finally, dear Lord, grant us the humility to always
seek your will in all that we do and say.
All Glory be to you, now and forever.
Amen.
