Catholic Healing Prayer for a Loved One

Lord, You walked on the earth, understood the broken world, yet also rose from death into resurrected life.
I pray for my loved one that they would be held at this time in your loving arms.
Bless the work of the doctors, surgeons and hospital staff, and bring the power of your resurrection life into their body.
Come fill my loved one from top to toe with your restorative Spirit.
May your resurrection life bring healing and wellness into their being.
May your grace carry them through this hard time into a new season filled with hope and joy. Amen.

O Holy Spirit, please come like a dove
Shield and protect now the one that I love.
Cover their wounds with Your grace feathered wings,
Shield them from sorrow, breathe hope songs within.

Tend with Your goodness the pain that they bear
Heal now their sickness with miracle care.
Carry them high far above till they see
Your rainbow of promise, real hope lies ahead.

I love them so dearly, so help me to be
All that you, would give out through me. Amen.

Think, O’ God, of our friend who is ill, whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard.

Comfort him/her upon his/her sickbed, and ease his/her suffering. We beg for deliverance, and submit
that no healing is too hard if it be Your will.

We therefore pray that You bless our friend with Your loving care, renew his/her strength,
and heal what ails him/her in Your loving name. Amen.



Disclaimer: Prayer is not magic. God indeed answers prayers but sometimes His answer is either No or Not Now. Don't be discouraged when your prayers are not met immediately or even later. Keep trusting God who is good all the time. Thank you.
