April 10-14 is National Cancer Registrars Week. Are you taking care of or know any patients who are battling the big C?
Despite the advanced technology and modern treatment plans, we, as nurses, should still value the proven benefits of prayers in healing our patients. We should take care of their faith and spiritual health as much as we care for their physical and mental needs.

Prayer through Saint Peregrine
O great St. Peregrine, you have been called “The Mighty,” “The Wonder-Worker,” because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.
For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.
(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying)
Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.

Protect us against rape and other violations, guard us against breast cancer and other afflictions of women, and inspire us to overcome adversity. Oh St. Agatha, virgin and martyr, mercifully grant that we who venerate your sacrifice, may receive your intercession. Amen.
Prayer for Strength
Lord, at the moment nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel.
My heart is broken and my spirit mourns. All I know is that Your grace is sufficient. This day, this hour Moment by moment I choose to lean on You, For when I am at my weakest Your strength is strongest. I pour out my grief to You And praise You that on one glorious day When all suffering is extinguished and love has conquered We shall walk together again.

Cancer is the uncontrolled rapid growth and spread of abnormal cells. Many people feel very devastated and cannot even offer up a prayer when they are informed that they have cancer of whatever nature.
Friends, the good news is that, the patients should have hope. Faith in God gives every patient hope. It is never too late with God. With man, it may seem impossible but nothing is ever impossible with God. (Luke 1:37)
One of the Great names of Our Mighty God is “Jehovah Rapha”. This mean, The LORD God that heals us. Cancer roots can dry at the command of our Great Lord. His word is powerful. Cancer cells will stop spreading at the command of God. His Word can restore health to you. The bible further says in Philippians 2:9-10, “Therefore God has exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the Glory of God the Father”. This tells me whatever name the cancer has, be it prostrate, lung, breast, or cervical cancer, all will bow at the name of King Jesus. Healing can be attained by trusting in His Wonderful name.
