Blessing Prayer in a Time of Sickness
Lately some of my friends are getting sick. One is stricken with cancer and a handful are hospitalized due to stress related issues. As I browse my Catholic Digest an article by Edward Hayes caught my attention. I decide to share an excerpt of his book specifically the "Blessing Prayer in a Time of Sickness".
If you or your love ones suffer from any illness say this prayer:
Lord of health and wholeness,
now lies sick
and desires to be restored
to the balance of good health.
Hear, O Lord, our prayers
For the healing of him/her
whom we love so much.
Remove from him/her this illness
so that, fully recovered
and restored to health,
he/she may return
with renewed zeal
to the daily life that we share.
