Prayer in Sickness

 

Father, let this suffering pass from me;

yet not my will but yours be done.

May you be blessed forever.

Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me.

With you I am nailed to the cross.

Let my pains be mingled with yours

for the saving of the world.

Holy Spirit, comforter and consoler,

heal what is ill in me,

strengthen what is weak,

sweeten what is sour or cranky.

Save me from depression and self-pity;

renew my courage;

bring me to pray with Jesus on the cross:

Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

Amen.
