Humbly asking prayers for my mother Susan admitted to hospital in the Coronary Intensive Care Unit.
Lord Jesus, you healed so many people during your public ministry. I bring before you now, in prayer, all those who are terminally ill -- those afflicted with cancer, and so many other illnesses.
Look lovingly and compassionately upon them. Let them feel the strength of your consolation. Help them and their families to accept this cross they are asked to carry. Protect them from euthanasia, Lord.
Let them see you carrying their cross with them, at their side, as you once carried yours to Calvary. May Mary be there, too, to comfort them.
Lord Jesus, I know and believe that, if it is your will, you can cure those I pray for (especially my dear beloved Mother). I place my trust in you. I pray with faith, but I also pray as you did in Gethsemane: your will be done.
Bless us, Lord, and hear my prayer. Amen.
