Healing Prayer – Oh good St. Raphael the Archangel, spiritual guide, I invoke you as the patron of those afflicted with sickness or bodily pain. You had the remedy prepared that cured Elder Tobit’s blindness, and your name means The Lord Heals.
I turn to you, begging for your divine help in my present need (mention your request). If it is God’s will, design to heal my illness, or at least grant me the grace and strength I need to be able to bear it with patience. Offering it for the forgiveness of my sins and for the salvation of my soul.
Teach me to unite my sufferings with those of Jesus and Mary and to seek God’s grace in prayer and communion. I wish to imitate you in your eagerness to do God’s will in all cases.
Like young Tobias, I choose you as a companion on my journey through this vale of tears. I wish to follow your inspiration every step of the way, to be able to reach the end of my journey under your constant protection and in the grace of God.
Oh blessed Archangel Saint Raphael, who revealed yourself as the divine assistant of the Throne of God, come into my life and assist me in this moment of trial. Grant me the grace and blessing of God and the favor I ask of you for your powerful intercession.
