Prayer for a sick baby
A healing prayer for a sick baby girl or boy

Cradle our beautiful baby
Jesus, hold them safe in your arms.
Let the breath of your spirit
Bring healing so deep and calm.

Comfort them, and enfold them
Bless their quiet sleep.
Wrap them up in the warmth of renewal
Let your power fall, to restore and keep.

May we be your hands and feet
To this little treasured one.
Bring your healing through our prayers
We need your touch, O Jesus come!
