For my friend, and his father (who suffers from cancer)

For my friend, don’t know if he believes or not. He’s had a rough year, made worse by the fact that no treatment seems to be able to help his father, who suffers from bladder cancer.
I pray for strength for my friend, health for his father, and the grace of God for the both of them and their family.

I pray for the intercession of the archangel Raphael, whos very name is ‘God heals’.

Blessed Saint Raphael, Archangel,
We ask you to help us in all our needs and trials of this life,
as you, through the power of God, restored sight and give guidance to young Tobit.
We humbly seek your aid and intercession,
that our souls may be healed,
our bodies protected from all ills,
and that through divine grace we may be made fit
to dwell in the eternal Glory of God in heaven. Amen.

Praying…

I just said a prayer for your intention. God bless you.

Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blest is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

I too have prayed for your friend and his dad, and I include them, and indeed you in my future prayers. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Prayed for your friend and his dad. May Christ bring them ever closer to him. May God heal his father so that His goodness will be shown even more visibly.

Lord Hear Our Prayer!

Holy Michael the Archangel defend us in the day of battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Power of God,
thrust down to hell, satan and all the wicked spirits,
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession and was left forsaken. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, a sorrowful sinner. Despise not my words, O Mother of the Word, but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
Amen

Hail Mary, full of grace,

now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.
