Prayer For A Cancer Patient
Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Living God, You breathe in us, / On all that is inadequate and fragile, /
You make living water spring even from our hurts themselves. And through You, the valley of tears becomes a place of wellsprings. / So, in an inner life / With neither beginning nor end,
Your continual presence / Makes new freshness break through.
O Lord, Your mercies are new to me every day! I give You thanks for the renewing of my health, for the relief from pain and worry. Continue Your healing within me, that I may return to the work You have given me to do for You. Through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
O God of all hope, whatever happens during this day is in Your hands. Strengthen me in my weakness, give skill to those who minister to me, and grant me confidence and faith in Your healing power. Through Jesus Christ my Lord I pray. Amen.
Suffer me not, O my Lord, To be deprived of the knowledge of Thee in Thy days, And divest me not of the robe of Thy guidance. Give me to drink of the river that is life indeed, Whose waters have streamed forth from the paradise (Ridvan) In which the throne of Thy Name, The All-Merciful, was established, That my eyes may be opened, And my face is illumined
May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind / Quickly be freed from their illness. / May those frightened cease to be afraid, / And may those bound be free. / May the powerless find power, / And may people think of befriending one another
Praying for others who are ill is a good deed. Praying for yourself is equally important. This prayer asks for the healing of your body, but also your spirit.
May the one who blessed our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah, bless and heal those who are ill [names]. May the Blessed Holy One be filled with compassion for their health to be restored and their strength to be revived. May God swiftly send them a complete renewal of body and spirit
For the Conductor, a psalm by David. May the Lord answer you on the day of distress; may the Name of the God of Jacob fortify you. May He send your help from the Sanctuary, and support you from Zion. May He remember all your offerings, and always accept favorably your sacrifices. May He grant you your heart's desire, and fulfill your every counsel.
God of healing mercy, in Jesus your Son you stretch out your hand in compassion, restoring the sinner, healing the sick, and lifting up those bowed down. Embrace us now in your loving care, particularly those afflicted with cancer, for whom this intention is offered. May the Spirit of Jesus bring us all health in soul and body, that with joy and thanksgiving we may praise you for your goodness...
