prayer to restore child to health

by Suzuki Anne (Japan)

St. Gerard, who, like the Saviour,

loved children so tenderly
and by your prayers freed many from disease and even death,
listen to us who are pleading for our sick child.

We thank God for the great gift of our son/daughter
and ask Him to restore our child to health
if such be His holy will.
This favour, we beg of you
through your love for all children and mothers.

Amen
