Have you ever wanted to visit a person in a nursing home or hospital but were uneasy or scared that you wouldn't know what to say, how to act, or even how long to stay? When you do visit, do you hesitate to pray, not because you don't want to or think it's unimportant, but because you aren't sure how to pray for the sick?

This one-session study provides some guidance. Through engaging Bible passages, role-playing hospital visitation scenarios, creating prayers to use when praying with and for the sick and his or her family, and receiving helpful tips for what one should do or say when visiting an ill loved one, participants will look at the practice of hospital visitation as well as home or nursing home visitation, and learn ways for sharing their burdens thoughtfully, sensitively, and faithfully.

Allan Hugh Cole Jr is Academic Dean and Nancy Taylor Williamson Professor of Pastoral Care at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Austin, Texas. He is the author of several books including The Life of Prayer: Mind, Body, and Soul and Good Mourning: Getting through Your Grief

Camille LeBron Powell is Associate Pastor for Young Adult Ministry at Second Presbyterian Church in Little Rock, Arkansas.
