Prayers for the sick are a great way to ask God for His healing and to give you, or your loved ones, comfort and strength to deal with afflictions. Are you undergoing an illness of some sort? Or do you know someone who is? As we all know, while our Lord in His Passion opened up for us the gates of Heaven, He did not create Heaven on Earth. We often travel in this life through a “valley of tears,” as we say in the prayer Hail Holy Queen. Illness is just one of many misfortunes people face in a world steeped in sin.
Among our prayers for the sick we offer this short one below:
Almighty and Everlasting God, the eternal salvation of those who believe in You, hear us on behalf of Your servants who are sick, for whom we humbly beg the help of your mercy, so that, being restored to health, they may render thanks to you in your Church. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
