The Good Shepherd

by Christiane Dopplinger

It was my first time in the PICU and the first time to meet Rafif. All alone, without any family, abandoned – a tiny, little creature, very poorly, barely surviving. A hospital bed far too big for him.


But when I started to pray I saw a picture of this little baby being held by Jesus, our Good Shepherd who was cuddling him and carrying him like a little lamb. So let’s pray that the Good Shepherd will cradle him in His arms, surround him with His love and take him wherever he needs to be taken. Let’s pray for God’s angels to come and fill this hospital room. Let’s pray for Rafif’s family in Gaza too.
