Fearless Friday: Prayer for Cancer Patients

Photobucket

It seems like every time I turn around lately somebody I know and love (or know of) has been recently diagnosed with some form of cancer: lung cancer, colon cancer, throat cancer.

So, I am dedicating today to pray for those with cancer, for their families and caretakers. I pray that the Lord heals them if it be His will, or comfort and strength as they deal with their disease.

Prayer to St. Anthony for Those Suffering with Cancer

Dear St. Anthony, you recognized Our Lord Jesus as the Divine Healer. In your goodness and kindness, please intercede for all those who are suffering from cancer.

If it is God’s will, I ask that this day, the gift of healing be granted to them. Comfort them during times of unbearable pain, and ask our Lord to grant them peace and patience in suffering.

May God give them the fullness of life here on earth, or call them home to eternal glory forever. Amen.

Come join us every week for Fearless Friday where we commit to praying for one another!)

Prayer need for a family member with lung cancer

Yesterday, my cousin (technically my cousin’s wife) found out that she has stage three lung cancer. The doctors are giving her about two-three months. It is heartbreaking for the whole family. She is only 55. My heart is heavy and I am so sorry for her.

She’s a fighter though. She told my mom that she is going to enjoy this weekend with her family before starting chemo. She’s going to do all she can.

Please in your kindness, pray for Michelle, that God give her the peace and courage that she needs. That she be healed if it be His will and that she has acceptance, whatever the outcome. Also, please say a prayer for the family; especially her husband (my actual cousin) and her children.  Thanks.

Prayer to St. Peregrine

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 fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured 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) – For Michelle and all those suffering with any form of cancer. –

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.

Btw, Let me pray for you, too. If you have any prayer requests, leave them in the comments and I’ll add them to the prayer list in my journal. God bless.
