Prayer for Sick Children

I don’t know about your homes, but out here we are all in some unfortunate phase of a nasty virus, smack in the middle of such a fun Christmas season. Of course we are most worried for the little one, and so this morning I’m offering up a prayer I found in a little prayer book given at my baby shower…

For the Health of a Child

Holy Mother, health of the sick and constant aide of those who pray to you, please speak with me to your divine Son. He showed himself loving and merciful in healing the afflictions of the body, as well as those of the soul. Pray with me, then, that my child may regain full health and bodily vigor; and, with strength restored through your assistance, may she become more deeply aware of the goodness of God and understand better your all-embracing motherhood — and so glorify God and honor you by holiness of life and service of others.

Mary, sorrowing Mother of all Christians, pray for us!
