Oh Abba Father be their strength,
Their comfort and their guide,
And when they feel that no one cares,
Be right there at their side.
Let them feel Your tender touch,
Because I know You care,
When absent friends are busy Lord,
You are always there.
Let Your tenderness break through
The weariness and pain,
And let them sleep a restful sleep
And feel refreshed again.
May they know that loving arms
Surround them every day
And people they may never meet
Think of them when they pray.
May they feel Your peace and love
Fill every empty part,
So loneliness and despair
Will never take their heart.
Give strength to those who tend them
And patience in their care,
And when the burden and the need
Is great - may friends be there.
Give wisdom to the doctors
So we can find a way
For your child to be well again.
All this, oh Lord, I pray.
