RJR asked: “Praying for one in excruciating pain to die has some halachic underpinning. Others suggest one simply pray for HKB"H to do what's best for the individual. Why isn't this what we should pray for in any situation?”

Many years ago I asked a wise rabbi what one should pray for in such a situation (or, similarly, what yo say to family members). His answer was to ask God to show mercy to the sick individual.
