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.

Loving Father, I come before you trusting in your goodness, kindness
and the power of your healing love as I lift up to you my sickness.
Heal me, Lord, of my cancer of (specify sickness).
Lord, you know all things, you can do all things and I know you love me very much.
Only you know what is best for me and what I need in terms of healing.
As I sit before you now lay your hands upon me, touch me,
heal me and bring me wholeness of body, mind, emotions and spirit.
Let the grace of your divine love and power flow to me right now to reach the
inner recesses of my being and spread to the different parts of my body.
Take away any pain or feeling of discomfort.
Correct any malfunctioning of my bodily organs and tissues.
Melt with the heat of your healing love all abnormal and cancerous growths.
Arrest the further spreading of those sick cells and create in me new and healthy cells.
Root out all the hurts embedded in my subconscious through the years.
Heal all my feelings of rejection, anger, frustration, aggravation,
all painful memories of the past and repercussions of traumatic experiences.
As you root out all these hurts, fill that void with your spirit of love, peace
and understanding, acceptance, meekness and tenderness, kindness, concern and generosity.
As I completely surrender to you my cancer sickness, deliver me from dwelling
on self-pity, fears, anxieties, hopelessness and all negative thoughts, and give me
the grace to offer all my pains and sufferings for other suffering people like me,
especially those sick with cancer, with no one to support them and pray for them.
Help me to see the blessings out of each trial to realize each victory from every tear,
to see your guiding hand and feel your loving presence in everything that is
happening to me, confident that you are totally in control.
Help me to learn lessons from my mistakes of the past,
and work on changes in my life and my way of living.
And then, dearest Lord, after I have been healed may my life be a witness to your love,
peace and healing power for others and bring glory, honor and praise to you.
All these I pray in the name of Jesus, through the intercession of Mary
and all the saints and angels.

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.

St. Peregrine’s heavenly intercession has given him the reputation as a “Wonder-Worker.”
When cancer strikes, it can be a crushing blow not only physically, but spiritually. It is a difficult cross to bear, one that God mysteriously allows in our fallen world.
Yet, during his short life on earth Jesus healed many people who came to him in sincere faith. While we must always seek proper medical attention for whatever ails us or our loved ones, God also wants us to reach out to him. One way to do that is through the intercession of the saints.
In particular, one saint who is known for his powerful intercession and healing of those suffering from cancer is St. Peregrine. An Italian saint from the 14th century, Peregrine suffered from a cancerous infection in his leg, which was miraculously healed during his lifetime. After his death Peregrine became known as the Patron of Cancer Patients and countless miracles have been attributed with his intercession.
Below is a simple prayer to St. Peregrine, asking for his intercession for yourself or a loved one suffering from cancer.
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 fiber of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favored 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 those 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. Amen.
