Our God, even when sickness is prolonged or life-thretening please give hope of a cure. Please heal whom You will in answer to our prayers of entreaty.
Prayer for the suffering and dying
Dear God, do not allow anxieties and sufferings to alienate us from You during life, and please encourage and protect us when we are dying.
Let our Redeemer claim the souls of the afflicted or dying. Ensure appropriate and kind care of their physical and spiritual needs. To the dying, to their carers, and everyone, Please passionate awareness of the true value of each human life.
Bless the chronically and terminally ill. Alleviate the suffering that sometimes accompanies the living and dying process for many persons. Please spare them, and my dear ones, this painful process of dying.
Send angels to comfort and assist them, as You did for their Brother in Gethsemane.
Grant love, forgiveness, assistance, and conversion to them. Give them repentance and trust as Your love and grace embraces them and blesses those around them.
Our God, because their eternal destiny is at stake, in Jesus’ name have mercy on those who are sick and dying, whether family, friend, or stranger!
“*Do not let your heart be troubled by the sad spectacle of human injustice, even this has its value in the face of all else. And it is from this that one day you will see the justice of God rising with unfailing triumph.” *(Saint Pio) “The longer the trial to which God subjects you, the greater the goodness in comforting you during the time of trial and in the exultation after the combat.”
“The most beautiful credo is that which comes from your lips in darkness, in sacrifice, in pain, in the supreme effort of an unbending will for good. It is this which, like a stroke of lightening, penetrates the darkness of the soul; it is this which in the flash of the tempest lifts you and leads you to God.” (Saint Pio) “
By kindliness and loyalty, atonement is made for sin.” [Proverbs 16:6]
