Prayer to St. Peregrine

Dear holy servant of God, St. Peregrine, we pray today for healing,
Intercede for us! God healed you of cancer and others were healed by your prayers. Please pray for the physical healing of
(mention your intentions).
These intentions bring us to our knees seeking your
 inter-cession for healing.
We are humble by our physical limitations and ailments.
We are so weak and so powerless.
We are completely dependent upon God.
And so, we ask that you pray for us.
Pray for us, that we will not let sickness bring us to despair.
We know, St. Peregrine, that you are a powerful intercessor
 because your life was completely given to God.
We know that in as much as you pray for our healing,
you are praying even more for our salvation.
A life of holiness like yours is more important then a life free of suffering and disease. Pray for our healing, but pray even more that we might come as close to Our Lord as you are.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.
