Prayer: For People Critically Ill, or Facing Great Uncertainty

God of the present moment,

God who in Jesus stills the storm

and soothes the frantic heart;

bring hope and courage to us

as we

wait in uncertainty. 

Bring hope that you will make us the equal

of whatever lies ahead. 

Bring us courage to endure what cannot be avoided,

for your will is health and wholeness;

you are God, and we need you.
