A Prayer for Blessing the Sick

Pray so that God may deliver you from affliction.

Prayers for the sick are a great way to ask God for healing. It also gives you and your loved ones comfort and strength to deal with the stress of the affliction. If you are sick or you know someone who is, call on the Lord that you may surpass this burden.

Pray that He grant you the grace to deal with whatever you’re suffering from with patience and strength. It might not heal our sickness quickly or miraculously, but knowing that He is offering the blessing of deliverance from it is enough relief already. (Read: Is it Helpful?

A Prayer for Blessing the Sick

Lord Jesus, when you were on earth, they brought the sick to you and you
healed them all. Today I ask you to bless all those in sickness, in weakness
and in pain.

For those who are blind and who cannot see the light of the sun;
the beauty of the world, or the faces of their friends:
Bless your people, O Lord.

For those who are deaf and cannot hear the voices which speak to them:
Bless your people, O Lord.

For those who are helpless and who must lie in bed while others go out and in:
Bless your people, O Lord.

For those whose minds have lost their reason and those who are so nervous that
they cannot cope with life:
Bless your people, O Lord.

For those who must face life under some handicap; those whose weakness
means that they must always be careful:
Bless your people, O Lord.

For those suffering from debilitating or terminal illness and for their caregivers:
Bless your people, O Lord.

For those who are near the hour of death and in their final struggle:
Bless your people, O Lord.

Father, your only Son took upon himself the sufferings and weakness of the
whole human race; through his passion and cross he taught us how good can
be brought out of suffering. Look upon our brothers and sisters who are ill, whom
we now remember in a special way. In the midst of illness and pain, may they be
united with Christ, who heals both body and soul. We ask this through Christ our
Lord. Amen.

Almighty God, as we ask your help for our brothers and sisters who are ill, we
ask you to help us to be healing people in our time and place. May your love
touch others through us, and may I help all people to live in peace. We ask this
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
