Prayers in Time of Illness

For the Sick
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. In the midst of illness and pain, may they be united with Christ, who heals both body and soul; may they know the consolation promised to those who suffer and be fully restored to health. Through Christ our Lord. 
The Pope's Family Prayer Book
 
Raise Me Up, Lord
 
Raise me up, Lord do not abandon your servant. I want health that I may sing to you and help your people lead holy lives. I plead with you are my strength, do not desert me. I have grown weak amid the storm but I long to return to you.  St. Gregory of Nazianzus (329-389)
 
Lord Jesus, Healer
 
Lord, Jesus, healer of our souls and bodies, during your life on earth, 
you went about doing good, healing every manner of sickness and disease, strengthening, curing, comforting and consoling. You want nothing more than to see us healthy and happy. You are the enemy of death and disease, and in and through you they are overcome and conquered. Lay your healing hands upon us now, so that we may live in your praise untiringly. 

Prayers Near Journey's End

 
For the Aged
 
Eternal Father, unchanged down the changing years, be near to those who are aged. Even though their bodies weaken, grant that their spirit may be strong. May they bear witness and affliction with patience, and at the end, meet death with serenity. Through Christ our Lord.
The Pope’s Family Prayer Book

 

For the Dying
 
Lord, this night some will be gathered to the Father. Grant that they may go forth surrounded by their loved ones, without pain of body, with clarity of mind, and joyful expectancy of soul.
 J. M. Ford From Lord Hear Our Prayer Ave Maria Press
