Prayer of a Ill Person

A prayer for healing to Christ's Infinite Mercy.

Prayer for healing to the Heavenly Physician. O merciful Infant Jesus! I know of Your miraculous deeds for the sick. How many diseases You cured during Your blessed life on earth, and how many venerators of Your miraculous image ascribe to You their recovery and deliverance from most painful and hopeless maladies.

I know, indeed, that a sinner like me has merited his sufferings and has no right to ask for favors. But in view of the innumerable graces and the miraculous cures granted even to the greatest sinners through the veneration of Your holy infancy, particularly in the miraculous statue of Prague or in representations of it, I exclaim with the greatest assurance:

O most loving, most pitiful Infant Jesus, You can cure me if You will! Do not hesitate, O Heavenly Physician, if it be Your will that I recover from this present illness; extend Your most holy hands, and by Your power take away all pain and infirmity, so that my recovery may be due, not to natural remedies, but to You alone.

If, however, You in Your inscrutable wisdom have determined otherwise, then at least restore my soul to perfect health, fill me with heavenly consolation and blessing, that I may be like You, O Jesus, in my sufferings, and may Your providence until You, at the death of my body, bestow on me eternal life.

Amen.
