We come to You this day with a longing that You heal our newborn baby.
We ask that you protect him during his time in surgery and for a speedy recovery thereafter.
We thank you for all those who You have put in our path to assist us in trying to heal him, doctors, surgeons and nurses.
We know that through Your name miracles happen every day.
We have faith in Your word and will never give up believing that he will be healed of all his complications.
In God we trust.

Irish prayers for a new child
May strong arms hold you
Caring hearts tend you
And may love await you at every step.
May you bring light to the home,
warmth to the heart
Joy to the soul
And love to the lives you touch.
May God surround this child
And bless this day.
May you have a sunbeam to warm you
Good luck to charm you
An angel to protect you
Laughter to cheer you
And faithful friends near you.
May God hold you
in the hollow of his hand
Forever and ever.
