Prayers for stroke victims
There might have been people in our lives who have succumbed to a stroke in the past. We don’t need to feel helpless anymore because there is something we can do to alleviate their suffering. Prayers!
upon all who have suffered a stroke.
Remove the sudden fear that befalls them.
Endow them with courage in the struggle
to recover what has been lost.
Grant them strength and hope
to envision new days ahead
and a spirit of faith
to take the risk of living fully
once again. Amen.
