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. Below is the prayer for today.

Touch Those Who are Sick

A cry for healing is among our most urgent prayers. When we and others are in pain,
we can turn to the Great Physician. It doesn't matter whether we need help in our body or
our spirit; God has the power to alleviate suffering.

Lord, you invite all who are burdened to come to you. Allow your healing hand to
comfort those in need. Touch their souls with your compassion for others, their hearts
with your courage and infinite love, and touch their minds with your wisdom.

Bring them health in body and spirit, that all may serve you. Amen.
