Prayer for my loved neighbor

(Willoughby, Ohio, United States of America)

Dear God,

I’m not very good at showing my emotions let alone making a prayer out of them. But I really need you to help me. My neighbor, who is an older married man with children from his previous marriage, is in the hospital and is very ill. He is also a veteran. He is so kind and caring, and is the kind of person people look up to. He is like the grandfather I have never had. I don’t ask for a lot, but please father, help this man. Shed your light on him in his time of need. He has done so much for me and for his country. With your love and tender care, I ask that he makes a quick, full recovery and continues to live a wonderful life.
