Dear God-

The cry of my heart at this particular moment is “Please let this child stop puking.”

That prayer has its own corollaries, all more or less selfish.

in this moment, though, I am also aware of gratitude for her life and love. I lift up others around the world who are caring for children with more serious struggles. I pray their courage and peace, hope and consolation.

in Christ’s name,


One thought on “Friday Prayer

  1. I believe every parent has prayed the puking prayer. Or the wheezing prayer, the diarrhea prayer. Hope she feels better soon! On behalf of my dear friends who are surfing the rough, unpredictable sea of a child with leukemia, thank you for your prayers.


We hope you'll join the conversation!
