PRAYERS FOR THE SICK
Acts of Most Necessary Virtues for the Sick
Lord, I accept this sickness from Thy Fatherly hands; I entirely resign myself to Thy blessed will, whether it be for life or death. Not my will, but Thine be done; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.
Lord, I submit to all the pains and uneasiness of this my illness: my sins have deserved infinitely more. Thou art just, O Lord, and Thy judgment is right. Amen.
Lord, I offer up to Thee all that I now suffer, or may have to suffer, to be united to the sufferings of my Savior, and to be sanctified by His Passion. Amen.
I adore Thee, O my God and my All, as my First Beginning and my Last End; I desire to pay Thee the best homage that I am able, and to bow down all the powers of my soul to Thee. Amen.
Lord, I desire to praise Thee forever, in sickness as well as in health; I desire to join my heart and voice with the whole Church of heaven and earth, in blessing Thee forever. Amen.
I give Thee thanks, O Lord, from the bottom of my heart, for all the mercies and blessings which Thou hast bestowed upon me and on Thy whole Church through Jesus Christ Thy Son; above all, because Thou hast loved me from all eternity, and hast sent Thy Son to redeem me with His precious Blood. O let not that Blood be shed for me in vain. Amen.
Lord, I believe all those heavenly truths which Thou has revealed, and which Thy Holy Catholic Church believes and teaches. Thou art the Sovereign Truth, who neither canst deceive nor be deceived. Thou hast promised Thy Spirit of Truth to guide Thy Church into all truth. In this Faith I resolve, through Thy grace, both to live and die. O Lord, strengthen and increase this my faith. Amen.
O my God, all my hope is in Thee! Through Jesus Christ, my Redeemer, through His Passion and Death, I hope for mercy, grace, and salvation from Thee. In Thee, O Lord, have I put my trust: let me never be confounded. O Sweet Jesus, receive me into Thine arms in this day of my distress; hide me in Thy Wounds, bathe my soul in Thy Precious Blood. Amen.
Act of Love
I love Thee, O my God, with my whole heart and soul, above all things: at least I desire so to love Thee. O come now and take full possession of my soul, and teach me to love Thee forever. I desire to depart, and to be with Christ. O when will Thy kingdom come? O Lord, when wilt Thou perfectly reign in all hearts? When shall sin be no more? Amen.
of Love of One's Neighbor
I desire to love my neighbor with perfect charity for the love of Thee. I forgive from my heart all who have in any way offended or injured me, and I ask pardon of all whom I have in any way offended or injured. Amen.
Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Thy great mercy: and according to the multitude of Thy tender mercies blot out my iniquity. O who will give water to my head, and a fountain of tears to my eyes, that, day and night, I may bewail my sins? O that I have never offended so good a God! O that I have never sinned! Happy those souls that have always preserved their baptismal innocence! Lord, be merciful to me a sinner; Holy Jesus, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me. Amen.
Act of Commendation to God
I commend my soul to God my Maker, who created me from nothing; to Jesus Christ my Savior, who redeemed me with His Blood; to the Holy Ghost, who sanctified me in baptism. Into Thy hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit. Amen.
of Renunciation of Evil
renounce, from this moment and for all eternity, the devil and all his
works and pomps. I abhor all his suggestions and temptations. Suffer not,
O Lord, this mortal enemy of my soul to have any power over me, either now
or at my last hour. Let Thy holy Angels ever keep me and defend me against
all the powers of darkness. Amen.
O Holy Mary, Mother of God, who wert present beneath the Cross at the death of thy beloved Son, Jesus, obtain for me the grace of a happy death.
Glorious St. Michael, Prince of the heavenly host, intercede for me at the hour of my death.
O holy Guardian Angel, to whose care God, in His mercy, has committed me, stand by me at the last hour; protect me against all the powers of darkness; defend me from all my enemies, and conduct my soul to the mansions of bliss.
O all ye blessed Angels and Saints of God, assist me by your intercession in the passage from time to eternity. Amen.
