It is customary to say Tehillim for sick people. Recently someone told me of a special way to daven for a sick person.
Perek 119 in Tehillim is divided into paragraphs according to the Alef Bet. Write down the Hebrew name of the person you are praying for: example Moshe ben Sarah: משה בן שרה
Then say the paragraphs of Psalm 119 according to that name. Fox example, the first paragraph you would say is the one beginning with the letter ''Mem'' then ''Shin'' then ''Hei'' then move on to the letters of the rest of the name in the same way, ending with the ''Hei'' of Sarah.
Why do we use the name of the mother rather than the father? The answer, as well as some other interesting facts, can be found here.
Wishing everyone who needs it a Refuah Shelaimah.
