Husband with advanced cancer


#1

forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=490652

Please pray for my husband, Rodney, who has advanced cancer and will be undergoing treatment. Please pray that God will cure Rodney in body, mind and spirit. Please pray that God will not make me a widow. This is so hard for me because my mom died when I was 7 and I remember praying to God not to take her but He did.

Please say a prayer for me, too, because I feel I could not go on living if something were to happen to my husband. He provides for me and takes care of me and does all our shopping because I have an anxiety disorder. I also haven’t worked in over 10 years and I don’t know how I would support myself. I’d rather be poor than to lose my husband.

Please pray for us! Thank you!

Therese

Father of goodness and love, hear our prayers for Rodney. Amid his physical suffering may he find consolation in your healing presence. Show your mercy as you cure his illness, May he find lasting health and deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts. We ask this through the Lord Jesus Christ.
I pray, Lord, that you would give Therese the gift of inner peace. Be beside, above and before her as she walks this journey. Jesus, we trust in You!!!

Dear Therese,
I pray that our Lord hears your prayer from the depth of your soul and that His will is
for strength of your heart and soul. May His Mother Mary be your mother at this
difficult time to comfort you. I truly pray that Our Lord pours out every grace and
mercy your heart and soul need at this very difficult time. I will pray for you.
Love,
Lorraine

CROWN OF THORNS PRAYER

Dear Lord,
I am grieved when I consider Thy sad condition
when Thou wore the Crown of Thorns upon Thy hold Head.
I desire to withdraw the thorns
by offering to the Eternal Father
the merits of Thy Wounds for the salvation of sinners.
I wish to unite my actions
to the merits of Thy Most Holy Crown,
so that they may gain many merits,
as Thou hast promised.

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

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.

Lord You promise that we will not be tested beyond our endurance, but sometimes we are tested close to that level. Please help us, please help Therese, to trust that You provide at each moment the graces and help necessary.
Please help her and her husband, whose ordeal of this illness and anxiety has gone on for so long now. Please flood them with all the graces they so need to get through each day with hope and consolation.

A Prayer to St. Peregrine for Sick Relatives and Friends

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called “The Mighty”, “The Wonder Worker” because
of the numerous miracles which you obtained from God for those who have turned to you in
their need. For so many years, you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys
the very fiber of our being.

You turned to God when the power of human beings could do no more, and you were favored
with the vision of Jesus coming down from His cross to heal your affliction. I now ask God to
heal these sick persons whom I entrust to you:
I pray for thereseozi and her husband, that God may heal her husband if it is His will, and that He will support therese in all her needs.

Aided by your powerful intercession, I shall sing with Mary a hymn of gratitude
to God for His great goodness and mercy. Amen.

Prayer for a Miracle
God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from
the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal this husband. You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.
You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from
the dead. Despite what the doctors say if this be Your Will I ask you to send forth your healing power into this husband's body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Come to our assistance in this great time of need,
that he may receive the consolations and succor of Heaven
in all his necessities, tribulations and sufferings,
particularly to help our friend to get better from his illness
and to give him good health
and to guide his path,
and that we may bless God with you
and all the elect forever.
I promise you, O Blessed St. Jude,
to be ever mindful of this great favor,
and I will never cease to honor you
as my special and powerful patron
and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you.

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

Lord Jesus Christ, you know all our pain and sorrow and bore them for us on the cross. In the illness which Rodney now experiences allow him to know your presence, strengthen his faith when he would despair, and give me the assurance of your eternal love and healing power.
Father, you are our refuge in good and in bad times. In your infinite mercy, bring peace, comfort and freedom from anxiety as Therese waits upon You. Holding onto His promise with you from Philippians 4:19:
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
