Family Prayer Intentions

For my 5 year old nephew, Timmy:
Blessed Savior, I thank you that his operation is safely past, and now may he rest in your abiding presence, relaxing every tension, releasing every care and anxiety, receiving more and more of your healing life into every part of his being. In moments of pain may Timmy turn to you for strength, in times of loneliness may he feel your loving nearness. Grant that your life and love and joy may flow through Timmy for the healing of others in your name. Amen.

For my sister-in-law, Linda:
Lord, look upon Linda with eyes of mercy, may your healing hand rest upon her, may your lifegiving powers flow into every cell of her body and into the depths of her soul, cleansing, purifying, restoring her to wholeness and strength for service in your Kingdom. Amen.

To 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 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 and healing of Timmy & Linda whom we entrust to you. 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. 

To Archangel St. Raphael
Glorious Archangel St. Raphael, great prince of the heavenly court, you are illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace. You are a guide of those who journey by land or sea or air, consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners. I beg you, assist Timmy & Linda in all their needs and in all the sufferings of this life, as once you helped the young Tobias on his travels. Because you are the "medicine of God" I humbly pray you to seek God's authority to heal the many infirmities of Timmy & Linda's souls and the ills that afflict their bodies. I especially ask of you the favor of healing Timmy & Linda, and the great grace of purity to prepare them to be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Please join me in prayer for my nephew Timmy as he heals from his operation and for my sister-in-law Linda, who lives with chronic pain.



  1. Noreen, your prayers are beautiful. Please know that I will rememeber your well as your eye infection, which I just read about on Colleen's blog. I do hope that is clearing up well for you.

    Being a cancer survivor myself, I feel very close to all who suffer from this terrible dissease, and will pray for your loved ones.

    Take care of yourself. God bless you always for all that you do for the unborn!


    1. Thanks Patricia for adding them in your prayers. Linda wasn't diagnosed with cancer but does have some serious chronic pain and other health issues. I do not have her permission to discuss them here but I wanted her lifted up in prayer by as many people as possible. She's been suffering in pain for quite awhile. Since St. Peregrine is known as "The Wonder Worker" I felt his prayers would be powerful as an intercessor in praying for a benign diagnosis. That prayer was answered!

  2. Noreen, I'm adding Timmy and Linda to my prayer list, for hearing and comfort. and thank you for your prayers for Jack. God bless you. St Peregrine is indeed a wonder worker.

  3. thank you for visiting me and leaving me a lovely comment. I join my prayers with yours here. God bless you for sharing your gifts for the glory of God.

  4. Oh Noreen. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. My household will be praying for Timmy and Linda. Prayer is so powerful! May they find the peace of soul knowing that so many are praying for them. God bless!

  5. Thank you ladies for joining us in prayer for Timmy and Linda! I will let them know they have prayers coming from around the world!

  6. Such beautiful prayers for your family, Noreen. I will add mine to yours.

    God bless you, Timmy and Linda.

    With love xxx

  7. Noreen, I will be keeping them in prayer. May God bless both of them with the knowledge of His Presence.
