Prayer For Critically Ill Child

It's hard to imagine a love that trumps a mother's for her child, especially when they are sick. When they miss out on fun things or are in pain, our hearts ache for them. We would do almost anything, sacrifice what we could, to heal them, make them smile again, see them well. The love of God surpasses what we can comprehend. The Father that gave His own Son, can be trusted to heal our littles. Father, bless and heal our children of their sicknesses. Restore their laughter, and let them play. Stir us to trust You more, and seek You harder. For just as You know us, You know our children. We are entrusted with them as mothers, but they are Yours. And You love them with the same extravagant love. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Lord I come to You today to present (child's name) to You. This very deadly sickness that is upon him/her is very sad to all who know and love him/her. I know that in times like this his/her Mommy and Daddy are in despair. Please keep them strong in You so that they can be a comfort to this dear little child. Please keep (child's name) from being scared of what is happening all around him/her. I ask Your mercy so that pain would be minimal or nonexistence. I love this small and fragile little child. Bestow Your grace and peace to them and all who love them. I pray this in Jesus name, Amen.

Dear God, I pray for (child's name) as he/she deals with this (specific illness) so often. I know You are the Master Healer and that You also provide times that are symptom-free for this dear little one. Please comfort and protect this dear child during this hard time. Help them to know that they can come to You for the peace and health that only You can provide. Please be with the doctors as they continually study to find medicines and treatments that will comfort those that suffer from chronic illnesses. I leave this in Your precious hands oh God my Father. Amen

Heavenly Father, watch over our child, and grant that he may be restored to that perfect health which it is yours alone to give; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
