Our Lady of Lourdes Prayer for healing
O ever-Immaculate Virgin, Mother of Mercy,
health of the sick, refuge of sinners,
comforter of the afflicted,
you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings;
look with mercy on me.
By appearing in the Grotto of Lourdes,
you were pleased to make it a privileged sanctuary,
whence you dispense your favours;
and already many sufferers have obtained
the cure of their infirmities, both spiritual and corporal.
I come, therefore, with complete confidence
to implore your maternal intercession.
Obtain, O loving Mother, the grant of my requests.
(mention your petition)
Through gratitude for your favours,
I will endeavour to imitate your virtues,
that I may one day share your glory.
To Heal a Friend
Think, O God, of our friend who is ill,
whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard.
Comfort him upon his sickbed, and ease his suffering.
We beg for deliverance,
and submit that no healing is too hard for the Lord, if it be His will.
We therefore pray that You bless our friend with Your loving care,
renew his strength, and heal what ails him in Your loving name.
Prayer for Healing I
Lord, look upon me with eyes of mercy,
may your healing hand rest upon me,
may your lifegiving powers flow into every cell of my body
and into the depths of my soul,
cleansing, purifying, restoring me to wholeness
and strength for service in your Kingdom.
Prayer for Healing II
O God who are the only source of health and healing,
the spirit of calm and the central peace of this universe,
grant to me such a consciousness of your indwelling and surrounding presence
that I may permit you to give me health and strength and peace,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Prayer for Healing III
Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to you.
Allow Your healing Hand to heal me.
Touch my soul with Your compassion for others;
touch my heart with Your courage and infinite Love for all;
touch my mind with Your Wisdom,
and may my mouth always proclaim Your praise.
Teach me to reach out to You in all my needs,
and help me to lead others to You by my example.
Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit
that I may serve You with all my strength.
Touch gently this life which you have created, now and forever.
