Prayer for the Sick
God our Father, your Son accepted our sufferings to
teach us the virtue of patience in human illness. Hear
the prayers we offer for our sick brothers and sisters.
May all who suffer pain, illness, or disease realize that
they have been chosen to be saints and know that
they are joined to Christ in his suffering for the
salvation of the world. We ask this through Christ our
Lord. Amen.

Father in heaven, grant them comfort in their
suffering. Give them courage when afraid, patience
when afflicted, hope when dejected, and when alone
assure them of the prayerful support of your holy
people. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
