Catholic Healing Prayer

Catholic Prayers for Healing

Based on the prayer of a 7th Century Irish Monk

“Heavenly Father, Creator of the universe, and Author of its laws, You can bring the dead back to life, and heal those who are sick. We pray for our sick brothers and sisters, that they may feel Your Hand upon them, renewing their bodies and refreshing their souls. Show to them the affection in which You hold all Your creatures, and grant them an early recovery.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

From the book HEALING PRAYERS, Aquinas Press

Blogger note: Do you really think the Monk finished the prayer "In Jesus' Name, Amen." I think it was added later?

Usually when it comes to Catholic prayers I rarely see, 'in Jesus name'...I think it is added on but I am no scholar.

Beautiful prayer.

Peace to you:)

Of course there is nothing wrong with it. In fact, scripture tells us to pray in Jesus' name.

That's why we make the sign of the cross.
