Prayer For The Terminally Ill
A Prayer for a sick person, when there appears to have small hope of recovery
O Father of mercies, and God of all comfort, our only help in time of need; We fly unto thee for succor in behalf of this thy servant, here lying under thy hand in great weakness of body. Look graciously upon
him/her, O Lord; and the more the outward person decayeth, strengthen him/her, we beseech thee, so much the more continually with thy grace and holy Spirit in the inner
Give him/her unfeigned repentance for all the errors of his/her life past, and steadfast faith in thy Son Jesus; that his/her sins may be done away by thy mercy, and his/her pardon sealed in heaven, before he/she go hence, and be no more seen.
We know, O Lord, that there is no word impossible with thee; and that, if thou wilt, thou canst even yet raise him/her up, and grant him/her a longer continuance amongst us: Yet, forasmuch as in all appearance the time of his/her dissolution draweth near, so fit and prepare
him/her, we beseech thee, against the hour of death, that after his/her departure hence in peace, and in thy favor, his/her soul may be received into thine everlasting kingdom, through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, thine only Son, our Lord and Savior.
