Are you suffering from cancer? Do you know someone who is? I believe in the power of prayer and in miracles. Here are seven powerful prayers for all who suffer from cancer.
PRAYER FOR HEALING OF CANCER THROUGH ST. JUDE
God of healing mercy, in Jesus your Son you stretch out your hand in compassion, restoring the sinner, healing the sick, and lifting up those bowed down. Embrace us now in your loving care, particularly those afflicted with cancer, for whom this intention is offered. May the Spirit of Jesus bring us all health in soul and body, that with joy and thanksgiving we may praise you for your goodness, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
PRAYER TO SAINT PADRE PIO FOR HEALING OF CANCER
You Gave Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina,
the great privilege of participating in a unique way
in the passion of your son, Jesus Christ,
grant me through his intercession
the grace of physical healing from cancer….(name intention here)
which I ardently desire for those that are in dire need of your physical healing;
and above all, grant them the grace of living in conformity with the death of Jesus,
to arrive at the glory of the resurrection. Amen!
Our Lady Mary Mediatrix of All Grace, Pray for us!
Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, Pray for us!
Our Lady of Grace and the Eucharist, Pray for us!
PRAYER TO SAINT PEREGRINE FOR THOSE WITH CANCER
O great St. Peregrine, you have been called “The Mighty,” “The Wonder-Worker,” because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you. For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favored with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you. (Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying) Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy. Amen.
PRAYER FOR HEALING OF CANCER THROUGH SAINT AGATHA
Oh St. Agatha, who withstood the unwelcome advances from unwanted suitors, and suffered pain and torture for her devotion to Our Lord, we celebrate your faith, dignity, and martyrdom. Protect us against rape and other violations, guard us against breast cancer and other afflictions of women, and inspire us to overcome adversity. Oh St. Agatha, virgin and martyr, mercifully grant that we who venerate your sacrifice, may receive your intercession. Amen.
CANCER PRAYER FOR PHYSICIANS AND NURSES
Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon your blessed name and we pray for your merciful heart to surround these with love, strength, and courage and we ask Your hands to touch them with the power of healing. May they be directed to the right treatment in Your blessed name as we ask You Lord to represent the physicians, nurses, and medical care aids and administer them in Your spirits. May every cancerous cell be cast out and replaced with good ones. May every spot of this deadly cell be wiped out by Your powerful hands.
CANCER: PRAYER FOR STRENGTH
Lord, at the moment nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel.
My heart is broken and my spirit mourns.
All I know is that Your grace is sufficient.
This day, this hour
Moment by moment
I choose to lean on You,
For when I am at my weakest Your strength is strongest.
I pour out my grief to You
And praise You that on one glorious day
When all suffering is extinguished and love has conquered
We shall walk together again.
PRAYER TO MOTHER MARY FOR THOSE SUFFERING WITH CANCER
Mary, health of the sick, you brought forth into our world Jesus Christ, our Divine Healer. In your caring goodness, intercede for (mention name), who is truly in need of miraculous assistance.
If it be God’s will, I ask this day that the gift of healing from all forms of cancer be granted to (name). Comfort him/her during times of anguish, pain, confusion and despair. Ask our gracious Savior to grant him/her physical health, inner peace and patience in suffering.
May God’s healing graces grant (name) a life of happiness, health and fulfillment here on earth, and one day the joy of eternal glory in His loving embrace. Amen.
