From USA Today-

Ruth Link, 92, lies in a hospital bed clutching the hand of longtime chaplain Jim Ivey as he kneels beside her in prayer.

Calling on the name of the Lord Jesus, Ivey prays that Link, who has been plagued with swelling from a kidney problem, will be able to go home as quickly as possible.

"I love praying for people because I believe that prayer works," said Ivey, who has been ministering to Link for more than a week. "Any time I can spend praying or talking or just comforting, that's a wonderful thing."

More than 60 years after the establishment of an annual National Day of Prayer in the United States, prayer remains an important source of solace and strength for some people who are going through crises, such as sickness.
