A Prayer for the
Conquest of Cancer
Our Lord, in whose hands are the issues of life and death, we thank you that you are a God of love.
From the gift of our lives to the moment we return to you, we are in your loving care. We turn to you in times of joy and times of pain.
We are concerned for those in pain, those who suffer from cancer, and for those who care for them.
Bless those who minister to the persons afflicted with this dread disease. Give them skill and knowledge that cures may be wrought.
Grant the gifts of patience and strength for families of those who suffer. Heal those who suffer, that the pain may be replaced by joy.
Give discovery of the cure for cancer and knowledge of how to prevent it.
Increase your ministry of healing through all who labor in research and the health professions...
That one day we may rejoice in a world free from the scourge of cancer in which all may live out their span of life in useful service to you and your children.
For this we pray.
To you we shall give praise!
