Prayer for the sick
Prayer for a sick friend
O Holy Spirit please come like a dove
Shield and protect now the one that I love.
Cover their wounds with Your grace feathered wings,
Shield them from sorrow, breathe hope songs within.
Tend with Your goodness the pain that they bear
Heal now their sickness with miracle care.
Carry them high far above till they see
Your rainbow of promise, real hope lies ahead.
I love them so dearly, so help me to be
All that you, Jesus, would give out through me.

To all those who are in need.
