A Healing Prayer

O Jesus, Good Shepherd, You heal the sick and needy. I give you all those parts of my body which have suffered from illness. You know what it is like to endure pain. Look kindly on me today and heal me. Restore me to strength of soul and body.

Give Your gift of wisdom to my physician that he may be guided by the Holy Spirit in all he does. Bless my nurses so that their hands will become Your hands as they touch me. Bless, too, my medication. O Jesus, grant us all Your healing grace of love and peace.

Amen.
