Saint Peregrine NovenaSt. Peregrine is the Patron Saint of Cancer Patients.

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.

All 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. Amen

  12. Since the past one year I have been surrounded by all kinds of diseases , pain and suffering. I was a chain smoker but I prayed for Gods help and on 18th July 2014 I stopped smoking, drinking and gave up addiction to having tea, in fact I gave up all bad habits by the grace of God. On 20th July I got cough and there was blood in it, I panicked rushed to the doctor well several tests were conducted the CT scan of my lungs diagnosed Cancer but a subsequent Broncoscopy diagnosed No Cancer. I was advised to get a Biopsey done which couldn’t be done due to bad condition of my lungs. In the meantime due to tension I got fistula and stones in my gallbladder. The gallbladder stones cause me a lot of unbearable pain forcing me to take an injection in the morning and at night to kill the pain this has been going on since the last 5 months. The surgeons refuse to operate and remove the gallbladder because of the cancer problem.
    I beg all of you to please pray for me to get relief from this terrible pain caused by gallbladder stones and for healing my lung cancer.
    I thank all of you for your kind prayers and good wishes.

It is not possible for me to get the gallbladder removed through surgery as my CT scan of my chest shows that I have cancer of the lungs where as the Broncoscopy shows that I don’t have cancer, a Biopsey can’t be done due to the bad condition of my lungs. So no surgent is ready to do the surgery to remove the gallbladder due to which I can’t eat proper food and I have lost over 30 KGS of weight yesterday my weight was 62.600 today it is 61.700. I am losing weight rapidly and wasting away. I am 65 yrs old.
    I have started praying fervently to God, Jesus and Mary to restore my health to normal.
