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.
