Default What to do in Thanksgiving for prayers of healing being answered?

Looking for a prayer or sacrifice to say/do in Thanksgiving for prayers answered. A friend has gotten healing and i dont want it to go without Thanking the Lord who healed her.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I'm doing a 54 day rosary novena.

For the first 3 novenas you pray petitioning for intercession.

During the last 3 novenas you pray in thanksgiving for the help. (even if you don't know if you've received it yet.)

So far, it's done wonderful things for my prayer life.

Pray a rosary or two.

Jesus tells us to keep things simple. So I would suggest simply saying "Thank you Lord God" or even "Thank you Almighty Father"...
I can assure you that, in this perverse world, our Heavenly Father will appreciate this simple thought and confidence spoken from the heart just as much as any great gesture that one might wish to offer.

That said, if you feel that you would like to do more, the best prayer is "action". You could give to an organization related to your friend's troubles. You could do volunteer work in some area or other...Commit to some hours in adoration...or even just commit to praying a certain number of rosaries or DMC's etc...

As I say - it isn't so much the particular things chosen but the heart - the intent - with which it is done...

... if I have all faith so as to move mountians but have not love, I am nothing.(1Cor 13:2)

The Best book on Spirituality that I ever Read: "The Fulfillment of All Desire"

Oh my God , I will continue
to perform, all my actions
for the love of Thee
