Prayer for today - 2017 month of prayer

Join the Catholic Health Association of the United States in making February a month of prayer for those who are sick and their caregivers.

With Feb. 11, World Day of the Sick, as the centerpiece of this initiative, the Catholic Health Association is sharing a prayer a day for those who are sick Feb. 1-10. On Feb. 11 the association's prayer will commemorate World Day of the Sick.

A Prayer in Times of Illness

Lord Jesus, you came into the world to heal our infirmities and to endure
our sufferings. You went about healing all and bringing comfort to those in
pain and need. We come before you now in this time of illness asking that
you may be the source of our strength in body, courage in spirit and
patience in pain. May we join ourselves more closely to you on the cross
and in your suffering that through them we may draw our patience and
hope. Assist us and restore us to health so that united more closely to your
family, the Church, we may give praise and honor to your name.
