A Prayer for those being admitted to hospital
God of love,Make yourself known to me as I enter this hospital.Help me to adjust to this new manner of life.Give me gratitude for those who care for me, compassion for those in the ward with me, love for all who I may meet here, and your presence - that I may know your healing touch. Amen.
