Let us pray for the sick

Let us carry in prayer our brothers and sisters who are faced with sickness, disability, depression…


“Do not consider your lives during this time of infirmity as futile realities. These moments can be before God the most decisive in you life, the most fruitful for your dear ones and for others.”  John-Paul II to the sick at Callao, Peru, the 04/02/1985

Our bothers and sisters that face the heavy combat against sickness need our support. We can support them through our prayers and, where possible, through a physical and reassuring presence. 

Join and receive:

Every Sunday, you will receive a prayer for the sick.

We will entrust all the sick – our dear ones, our friends, our neighbours… as well as those who we do not know and who suffer across the world – to the intercession of the Virgin Mary, the Saints, the Blessed. We will also pray with other prayers, those of strangers, those that we share…

Evening prayer for those who are suffering

Lord Jesus, 
So many dramas afflict us,
I pray to you tonight for all the people who are suffering.
I pray to you for the parents who have lost a child,

For all the people who are crying for a loved one, 
For the fragile and sensitive people who suffer from the indifference or the cruelty of our society.

I pray to you for all the people who feel lost,
Those who do not know where to go anymore,
Those who bury themselves in the dark,
Those who wander aimlessly in our streets,
Those who suffer in their body,
Those who suffer in their soul,
Those who feel abandoned by all, 
Those who know nothing but solitude.

I pray to you Lord
For all those who do not speak,
Those who suffer in silence, 
Those whose words do not come out,
Those who confide in You.
And all those who do not know You.

Lord, I pray to you tonight for all the people who are crying,
And for those whose tears are not flowing.
Lighten their pain, 
Appease their heart,
Bring them Peace and Consolation, 
Love and Light.

Prayer for the sick

You alone, O Christ, can promptly save Your creation: we implore You, come to visit Your servant N… who is sick. Deliver them from suffering and excesses of pain. Raise them up so that they may sing and glorify You without end, through the prayers of the Mother of God, and all the Saints, O You the one true friend of Men. O Saviour, You made Peter's mother-in-law rise from her sickbed while she was consumed by a burning fever, and You made the paralysed man carry his mat. In your infinite compassion, come now to visit and heal the sick, afflicted in their flesh. For nothing is impossible to You, You alone who carries the suffering and sickness of all the world in Your great mercy.
