Prayer for a Sick Noahide

Q: What prayer can be recited for the health of a Noahide who is sick?

Q: What prayer can be recited for the health of a Noahide who is sick? Is the Mi Shebeirach prayer that is recited in public for a sick Jew appropriate?

A: Yes, in my opinion this prayer can be recited just as it is for a Jew. Proof of this can be seen in the verse, “Abraham prayed to G-d” (Genesis 20,17), referring to Abimelech, and also when Elijah prayed for Naaman (II Kings 5).
