PRAYER TO SAINT GERARD MAJELLA FOR A SICK CHILD

O 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.
