Prayer for World Day of the Sick 2022
you care for your people
with the strength of a father
and the tenderness of a mother;
and you desire to give us
new life in the Holy Spirit.
You sent Jesus your Son
as Saviour of all people;
he proclaimed the gospel of the Kingdom
and healed those who suffered
from illness and disease.
We ask you to send the grace of your Son to us now,
that he may bring healing and hope
to all who suffer with infirmity and sickness.
Send the Holy Spirit
to impart that new life
which comes from Jesus your Son,
through the power of his death and resurrection.
May the same life-giving Spirit
sustain and enlighten
all who care for the sick and infirm,
and all who seek cures for the diseases
that afflict our human condition.
Through Christ, our Healer and Lord.
Mary, Health of the Infirm,
Pray for us.
