The following are prayers for your consideration and use:
The Power of Prayer

Nobody knows the power of prayer,  But somebody must be listening there

With a friendly ear for the heart that calls, Someone who know when a sparrow falls.

Miracles lie in the power of prayer;  Faith that can banish the soul’s despair!

Hope that can shine like a holy light  And brighten the spirit’s darkest night!

When earthly help is of no avail    There is one Friend who will never fail;

Just lift your eyes, the answer is there…For nobody knows the power of Prayer

(Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters)

 A Prayer For Healing

God our Father

be near to those who suffer

In the time of weakness and pain;

Relieve them of their burden

and heal them

If it be your will.



Healing Prayer

Jesus heal our lives    Our broken spirits,

Our hearts and minds   Our body and soul.

Jesus hear our prayer   You know our weakness

Our struggle and our pain   For you too have suffered

Jesus listen in love   As you once did at Cana

To your Mother Mary   And respond in mercy.  Amen

(St. Benddict’s Abbey)

Prayer in Time of Need

O Lord, in my present need, help me to believe

that you are aware of my trouble and will do what

is best for me.  Give me the strength to trust You

and to put the present and future in your merciful hands.

(Society of the Divine Savior)

Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to You.  Allow Your healing 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, that my mouth may always proclaim your praise.  Teach me to reach out to You in my need, and help me to lead others to you by 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.  Amen (Marianist Mission Prayer)

“God indeed saves me; I am confident and unafraid.  My strength and my courage is the Lord, and he saves me.”   (Isaiah, 12:2)
