Prayer for the Sick
Omnipotent and eternal God, the everlasting Salvation of those who believe, hear us on behalf of Thy sick servant, N., for whom we beg the aid of Thy pitying mercy, that, with his bodily health restored, he may give thanks to Thee in Thy church. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

For Those Suffering Fever
O Lord Jesus Christ my God, You are a river flowing in a desert, and the shadow of a huge rock in a sun-scorched land. At the prayerful request of your apostle, Peter; You subdued the fever of his mother-in-law. I beseech You, hear my supplication for the remission of my sins. In your compassion, + ease my pain, subdue the fever of my ailment. May I find the cure I seek from You, and, by Your mercy, may I rise from my sick-bed. For You are a merciful God, and You love mankind, and I give glory to You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and forever. Amen.

After an Accident or Injury
O Lord my God and Savior, You rule over all things; You are my physician and comfort in sickness; You deliver me from pain. You stretched forth your hand to save your apostle Peter as he was sinking in water. Grant now your merciful aid to me and heal my injuries. And as I trustingly call on You, + restore me to health in your loving kindness. O long-suffering Lord, show me your compassion and mercy that I may glorify your divine power and bless your holy Name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever. Amen.

Before an Operation
O Lord Jesus Christ our God, You patiently endured the scourging and wounding of your sacred body, that You may save the souls and bodies of your people. Look now graciously on my suffering body, + and give me the strength to bear patiently whatever awaits me. Bless the people and all the means which will be used to restore me to health, and grant that I may accept my bodily sufferings as a means of reparation for the salvation of my soul. For You, O Christ, my God and Savior, are merciful, and I give glory to You, together with your eternal Father and with your all-holy and life-giving spirit, now and ever, and forever. Amen.

For Those Whose Illness Grows Worse
O Lord, Jesus Christ Our Savior, for our sake You have been born, have hungered and thirsted, have suffered, and have laid down your life. As I share in Your sufferings, allow me to share also in Your graces. May your Precious Blood wash away the stains of my sins; may Your righteousness cleanse my iniquities. + Consider rather my faith in You than my deeds when I appear before You, My Judge. As my health fails, increase in me your bountiful graces, May I stand firm in my faith; my hope in You never fail; may my love of You never grow cold; may the fear of death never cause me to abandon trust in You, but persevering unto the end, may I say to you: "Into Your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit." And may I so enter into your everlasting Kingdom, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever. Amen.

Prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
We fly to your patronage, O Virgin Mother of God. Despise not our prayers in our necessities, but who are alone pure and blessed, deliver us from all danger. O most glorious ever-Virgin Mary, Mother of Christ, Our God, receive our prayers and transmit them to your son and Our God, that He, for your sake, will enlighten and save our souls.
