Prayer for an Afflicted Child

    “Prayer for an Afflicted Child,” Ensign, Apr. 1976, 13

    Prayer for an Afflicted Child

    And now that I have fully

    Informed you of his needs—

    Have written out the remedy,

    As doctor to pharmacist—

    I have remembered.

    I am an apprentice

    Instructing the master.

    Forgive me.

    I will take the prescription

    That you sign.

    He was your child,

    I have remembered,

    Before he was mine.
