Sickness Is Next to Godliness?

Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayim 101:4:

Some say that [one one must pray only in the Holy Tongue (Hebrew)] when one is asking for one’s needs, such as praying for a sick person…

Mishnhah Berurah, ad loc:

That is, when [the one praying] is not in the presence of the sick person, but in the presence of the sick person it is permitted [to pray] in any language one desires, for the Holy One Blessed is He is present [in the place of a sick person].
