A Prayer for Healing Cancer
Heavenly Father, I come before you with a
solemn heart and in need of your intercession.
I pray that the cancer that has come into my life
soon fades into a quick remission.
I believe in
your capacity for miracles, and ask for this on my
behalf. As we grow older, I know we become closer
to the day you accept us back into your kingdom.
I ask that you delay that holy union if it be your will.
In your name I pray,
Let us all pray for a permanent cure for cancer as soon as possible. With all of the new cancer treatments being developed each year, we will surely get there soon. God bless you, and may you or your loved one experience a speedy recovery.

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.
Through Saint Agatha
Oh St. Agatha, who withstood the unwelcome advances from unwanted suitors, and suffered pain and torture for her devotion to Our Lord, we celebrate your faith, dignity, and martyrdom. 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.

The heavenly intercession of St. Peregrine has given him a reputation for doing wonders
When cancer strikes, it can be a devastating blow not only physically, but also spiritually. It is a difficult cross to bear, one that God mysteriously allows in our fallen world.
However, during His short life on earth, Jesus healed many people who came to Him with sincere faith. Although we must always seek adequate medical attention for everything that afflicts us or our loved ones, God also wants us to draw closer to Him. One way to do this is through the intercession of the saints.
In particular, there is a saint famous for his powerful intercession and for healing those who suffer from cancer: St. Peregrine. Italian Saint of the fourteenth century, Pilgrim suffered from a cancerous infection in his leg, which was miraculously healed in life. After his death, Peregrino was known as the patron saint of cancer patients and innumerable miracles have been attributed to his intercession.
