Prayer for a sick child in hospital
(a prayer for a parent or guardian to say with their child)

You're with us.
Though you are not seen,
We know that you stay by our side.

You love us,
More than we could know,
And you feel each tear that we cry.

We trust you,
To take hold of our hands,
Until we're recovered and well.

You promise to,
Comfort and care,
Until we are laughing and playing again.

Thank you Jesus.
