St. Peregrine was known for his holiness but also for a miraculous healing that he received.

St. Peregrine Novena Prayers

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 intercession for healing.

We are humbled 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…

Day 1 – Pray for us, that we will not let sickness bring us to despair
Day 2 – Pray for us, that we may persevere in hope
Day 3 – Pray for us, that we will have the courage to offer up our suffering in unity with the Cross
Day 4 – Pray for us, that the loneliness of our suffering will be consoled
Day 5 – Pray for us, that the fear of death will be replaced with the hope of everlasting life
Day 6 – Pray for us, that our suffering will not rob us of joy
Day 7 – Pray for us, that in our pain we will not become selfish but ever more selfless
Day 8 – Pray for us, that this sickness will teach me to depend more and more on God
Day 9 – Pray for us, that our lives will glorify God alone

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 that 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

  1. A few weeks ago one of our relatively young nieces became ill when she was traveling out of state. Thankfully, the hospital where she went did not send her home with instructions to rest and drink fluids. They ran tests diagnosed with kidney cancer, very advanced cancer. She had not had any symptoms warning of the cancer at all and we are told that this is not at all unusual. Surgical treatment begins Tuesday. I am beginning the St Peregrine novena tonight and ask for you to join in and pray for Monica M.

  11. Please pray for my sister. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. She had major surgery and after removing over 25 lymph nodes, all came back negative. Last month my sister requested a CT scan and they found a quickly growing tumor in her liver. She had her first chemo session two weeks ago for this new tumor and something went wrong. My sister passes out, had no pulse. By the grace of God she came back to life but now we are at a point where the doctors told her this chemo is her last chance. The problem is that we don’t know if she is allergic to it since she had a very bad reaction last time. My prayer tonight is for this chemo to WORK and to help my sister, my father (who is battling prostate cancer) mother, my family and I not to lose hope and keep faith ever so strong. We are humbling asking for a miracle. My sister is Jackie G. in Visalia, CA

    • My husband also was diagnosed last year with pancreatic cancer…similar scenario where he had chemo and surgery losing half of his pancreas. The cancer has returned in a lymph node and liver. We researched some natural healing sources and he opted out if chemo. I’m not saying to opt out but look into checking her PH levels. A theory is that Cancer has trouble surviving in a high PH environment. Also research Rick Simpson hemp oil from Colorado. They are having a lot of success with it. My husband is doing good with these alternatives and they are monitoring his progress. Maybe try it with the chemo?
      And of course the power of prayer. 🙏🙏🙏. I will remember your sister in my prayers.
