It is devastating to see our loved ones fall ill. As supporters, there’s only so much you can do, and sometimes it seems like all you can do is hurry up and wait.

For Catholics, prayer is a fundamental part of the faith. In difficult times, turning to prayer is one way you can express your concern and calm your mind. Asking God to keep your loved one in your heart can give them the strength to heal their illness or make peace.

In Catholic tradition, many prayers call upon the intercession of patron saints who attend to specific needs. Catholics visit St. Padre Pio, St. Peregrine, St. Nicholas, St. Agatha, St. Anthony, St. Dymphna, and St. Raphael in their time of need.

Below, you’ll find Catholic prayers to God and patron saints for healing.

Catholic Prayers For Recovery

Living lord,

Your love has held me up and saved me from this pain. Now may your hope and healing take me to a place of restoration soon. O Lord, your healing oil flows from within me like a living stream. I choose to bathe in these clear waters every day.

I will keep my eyes on you, and trust in you that I will be completely fine. I give you all that I am and rest in your peace. I stand firm on your promises. They are like a spring filled with goodness.

I wait for you.

Most Merciful Jesus, who is the consolation and salvation of all who trust in you, we humbly beg you, from your bitterest passion, your servant N.N. grant him the recovery of health, provided it is for the welfare of his soul, that he may with us glorify Thy holy name, and glorify it. Amen.

O great Saint Peregrine, you have been called “the Mighty,” “the Wonder-worker” because of the many miracles that you have received from God for those who have resorted to you. For so many years you have instilled in your body this cancerous disease that destroys the fiber of our existence, and which had resorted to the source of all grace when the power of man could no more. It was a grace to see Jesus coming down from the cross to heal your suffering. Ask God and our lady, the cure of the sick that we entrust to you.

(Pause here and silently remember the names of the people you are praying for)

Aided in this way by your mighty intercession, we will sing to God, now and forever, a song of gratitude for his great goodness and mercy.
