Prayer about children's deaths at Gorakhpur hospital
Lord, today we pray for the people of Gorakhpur, India, and the surrounding area, as they mourn the deaths of 68 children at their local hospital in a matter of days. Lord, there are so many things to pray about. We ask that the truth come out about what has been happening at Baba Raghav Das (BRD) Medical College. Were these children deprived of life-giving oxygen? Was someone’s negligence to blame? Were the deaths actually “normal”? We also pray for comfort. The death of a child is every parent’s worst nightmare. Please be with these grieving families in this dark hour. And, Lord, we pray for the families of children still receiving care at BRD, who are now concerned about their children’s safety. Give them wisdom regarding next steps, whether it is best to move their children or have them remain. Lord, please make your presence known in Gorakhpur as its people face this trial. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
