Dearest Lord, it is with a heavy heart that we ask for your mercy on our child who lies in the hospital. With each breath he draws, we grow more afraid of the inevitable outcome. The doctors are honest and kind, but all we can see is our son, lying in that place where so many other parents have cried before us. Whether their children recovered, or their little ones passed on to you, we realize that you were never far away from them either. We must also trust that you will be near to us as well, throughout what seems to be an unbearable situation. Dear God, so many things are changing, as we watch our son change before our eyes. Yet like each breath that keeps him alive, we love and know our son, even as he is not who he once was. In your Name we pray. Amen

One of the most poignant prayers I have ever heard was that of a father for his son in hospital and it went something like this. “Lord, I ask nothing for myself, but please give my son peace, please let him be at peace with himself when he is lying in his bed tonight.” Parent’s pray for their children every day, especially when they have life threatening illnesses. They are worried about the health and well being of there child. Throughout history, parents have been praying for their children who are are seriously ill as seen in the image from St. Rochus church in Krakow, Poland dated 1427 showing a man kneeling and praying while beside him is his daughter on her death bed.

Dear Lord,

We pray for the child in the hospital. Please bless him with a speedy recovery, and give him comfort and peace during this difficult time. We ask that you guide his doctors and nurses as they care for him, and we pray that they will be able to provide the best care possible. We thank you for all you have done thus far, and ask that you continue to watch over our young friend as he recovers. In your name we pray, amen.

Dear God,

I pray for this child who is in the hospital. I pray that you will grant them comfort and peace as they heal. Please help them to feel better and get healthy so they can come home. Help the doctors who are taking care of them to be able to do their job with ease and grace.

I ask this in your name, Jesus Christ, Amen
