Enjoy reading and share 1 famous quotes about Praying For Someone In The Hospital with everyone.
“You want to know what Im afraid of? Im afraid of every morning when I wake up that this will be the day when I can no longer move for myself. I know its coming. Its just a matter of time until I have no choice, except to have someone else clothe me, feed me. Change my diaper. And I cant stand it. (Adron) Then why dont you kill yourself? Why are you still here? (Livia) Because every time I think of doing that, I can hear my family praying over me while I was in the hospital. I hear my mother weeping, my father begging me not to die on them. I could never intentionally hurt them that way. It would devastate them both, and while Im a pathetic asshole, Im not that selfish. (Adron)”

Prayers for Hope and Healing is officially spreading its wings to fly this week!
As I’ve talked with people about the experiences that shaped this book, I’m reminded that my life journey has been vastly unique. Many hours have been spent in the hospital, from the time I was four years old watching my sister battle cancer, to the year-and-a-half spent dealing with my own health issues, to the months watching my sister wait for a heart transplant, to the recent medical crisis of my son.
The hospital is such a strange place that brings both fear and peace, angst and hope. If you know someone in the hospital, you may struggle to recognize what they need. You want to help but don’t know how. Maybe you’re planning to visit them, but you don’t want to show up empty-handed.
Each person’s needs are different, but here are some gift ideas that can be especially meaningful for someone in the hospital. Some of these work best for a long-term stay, while others can be helpful for shorter stays too.
Whether you want to cheer up a friend or simply let them know you care, allow these ideas to be a springboard of comfort and hope.
- Eye mask for better sleep
- Comfortable slippers
- Lap pillow with a hard surface for writing or setting a book on top
- Sugar-free gum or mints
- Quality shampoo, conditioner, and body soap in travel-size containers
- Box of ultra-soft Kleenex
- Therapeutic lotion (nothing overly scented!)
- Crossword puzzle book
- Coloring cards and colored pencils (These cards are some of my favorites.)
- iTunes gift card so they can download music or a new game on their phone
- Healthy snacks
- Travel Yahtzee or another game that can be played alone or with someone else
- A novel or collection of short stories
- A copy of Prayers for Hope and Healing
If you want to include a card of encouragement with your gift, I offer two free printable cards at this link.
Thanks for celebrating Release Day with me, and happy gift-giving! 🙂

Lord, Jehovah, God of Healing, we come to you today, to lift up a dear one who needs You.
You knit each of us together in the womb. You know every cell in our bodies and the whole path of our lives.
Nothing comes as a surprise to You, Creator God of all things.
You are not bothered by technology, or our time table. You already know the grace that this dear one needs today, tomorrow, and in the future.
You already know the outcome of this situation, and are prepared to meet every need.
Oh, dear Abba, this dear one needs to know that and feel that today. To know that before this medical problem even came up, that You were already there, preparing the way, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Dear Father, it is so hard not to lean on our own understanding. We try to plot every possible scenario, and fix everything. We are so frail, and so human.
Yet all this time, Lord, You have been carrying this dear one. There is nothing to plan, to fix, to figure out. When you are in the Shepherd’s arms, you do one thing – rest!
Lord Jesus, help us all to “be still and know that you are God.” The God of our cells.
Lord, You confound the wise. Right now, what seems like an undeniable, scientific medical fact, is an opportunity to confound the wisdom of science with a good result on this medical test. We pray for that.
