    God of compassion and grace,
    we pray for all those who
    find themselves imprisoned
    by chronic illness
    within the loneliness of home,
    watching a world outside
    that once had their
    full involvement
    increasingly pass them by.
    Be with and bless them, Lord,
    along with family and carers
    calling through the week to help.
    May they know that they are loved,
    still precious in your sight,
    and feel your arms support them
    in the day and through the night.

    Thank you so much @Andrew- that is a really lovely prayer. I try to pray everyday for all those who are having a difficult day with illness. We often feel ourselves to be so alone....but we are actually all united by our struggles.
