God, source of all life and healing,

Who can help us grow in wholeness:

Be with me in this time of physical and emotional need.

Help me rest and cope with the challenges I am facing.

Comfort and encourage those who love and care for me

whose lives have been unsettled and disrupted

by my illness and hospitalization.

Guide and give wisdom to the healthcare personnel

who are committed to my treatment and well-being.

In this special moment of my need,

I pray for healing and for inner peace.

I pray for patience and for understanding.

I pray for a deepening of my faith and belief in you,

my loving God. Amen.

to God, reminded of God’s love and abiding care, and hopeful that God will give

you the necessary strength to cope with life’s challenges and be healed.

Your chaplains offer you the support of the following prayer, which you may use

or modify according to your own circumstances, beliefs and needs.May it serve

as a springboard for your own personal and spontaneous prayer.
