Prayer for a sick child

Thank you that when your Son graced this earth
He welcomed the children and blessed them.
Thank you that the same power that raised Him from the dead
Is at work within N. now.

Lord, we give you N.
We invite you to come by the power of the Holy Spirit and restore this beautiful child to life.
Come and pulse through his body by your Spirit.
Bring your healing and strengthen his being.
We ask that in the name of Jesus this sickness would leave his body now.
Thank you that you hear our prayer and no matter what happens You cherish N. and hold him in the palm of your hand now and always.

Lord Jesus Christ,
Good Shepherd of the sheep,
you gather the lambs in your arms and carry them in your bosom:
We commend to your loving care this child N. Relieve his pain,
guard him from all danger,
restore to him your gifts of gladness and strength,
and raise him up to a life of service to you.
Hear us, we pray,
for your dear Name’s sake.
