Prayer for a Sick Child

Eternal Balance, see what I place before you,
listen to the story I tell:
there is a disturbance here,
something that should not be.
A child is sick. How can this be?
You know that the business of childhood is growing.
Yet sickness prevents growth.
How can it be, then, that this child is sick?
Perhaps you were sleeping and did not notice.
I have brought it to your attention now,
and I know you will do what is right.
Eternal Balance, Continuous Harmony,
I place my child in your arms for healing.
