Prayer Request

Please pray for my friend Valerie. Val had a bone marrow transplant 13 years ago due to leukemia. She has won many battles throughout the course of her disease. Today, she has a new battle. She is currently fighting graft-versus-host disease. This is very serious and prayers are much appreciated.

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 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. Amen.

Thank you for including the beautiful prayer! It's so easy to say, "We'll pray," and then just say, "Dear Jesus, please help so and so," throughout the day; but it seems so much better to just stop and say such a thoughtful prayer right then and there. I printed it so we can continue to use it. God bless your friend.
