Say This Prayer When Praying for the Sick To Invoke the Healing Ministry of Jesus

During his ministry on earth, Jesus was commonly identified as a healer.
Among the hallmarks of Jesus’ ministry was his particular care of the sick; curing multiple people from debilitating illnesses and injuries. Also, these miraculous healings become especially obvious when reading through the Gospels. Here is a short prayer excerpted from the Roman Ritual that invokes Jesus’ healing ministry and asks him to heal those who are sick now and restore them to health.

Prayer for the sick invoking Jesus’ miraculous healings
Lord Jesus Christ, Saviour and consoler of our weakness, who delivered Peter’s mother-in-law and the ruler’s son from a high fever; who restored strength to the paralytic, cleansed the lepers, healed the centurion’s servant; who saved the woman suffering from hemorrhage, raised up the man lying helpless on his pallet at the pool of Bethsaida, went about the towns and villages healing all kinds of ailments … may the sick … be freed from their illness and restored in body and mind, and may rightly see fit to praise your power until the end of their days; you who live and reign forever and ever. Amen.

Glory be, to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

a world without end. AMEN (2times)
