Hi friends, good morning.
I am not sure what “panalangin sa may sakit” really means, does it mean "prayer for the sick one and hope he can be cured"? If one's son is sick, can one "panalangin sa may sakit"? Could you please tell me? Thank you.

    Panalangin sa may sakit means prayer for a person who is sick.

    If you want to say that you are praying for your son who is sick, it would be nananalangin ako (sa Diyos) upang gumaling ang aking anak, I am praying (to God) that my child will get better.
