A Prayer for a Sick Child

Father in heaven, be with this child who is sick.
May her angels, who can always see your face in heaven, keep watch over her.
Make your face shine on her and keep her.
When she feels pain, grant her relief.
When she cries, hear her.
When she is afraid, calm her.
When she is tired, give her sleep.
Lay your healing hand upon her.
As long as she must suffer, carry her in your comfortable bosom.
Remember her name, even if she cannot yet say yours.
Sustain her father and mother;
may this little one experience your everlasting love through them.
Bless the doctors and the nurses, the medicine and the treatments.
You are the One who heals all sicknesses, so we plead with you to heal her.
Whatever happens, let no one snatch her from your hand.
Father, do this for the sake of Jesus, her Good Shepherd.

Amen.

Based on Numbers 6; Psalm 103; Matthew18; John 10.

This prayer is for Hadley, recently diagnosed with cancer.
