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

  1. Believers in Christ: I beg you to please pray for my dear brother, Lloyd Joseph Parker Jr. He is unequivocally The kindest man I know. I realize some may feel I am bias but I am saying what I know is true. It is perhaps the reason he suffers. My big brother has always taken care of all others before himself. He flew to Germany many times after working all day to check on me when I had to have numerous surgeries prior to finally being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. After my disease got the best of my health and I had to retire from federal service Lloyd flew from California to Frankfurt after work met me at the airport, dropped my daughter and I off in Arizona, caught the next flight to California and went straight to work. If that’s not a saint? I don’t know what is. Please pray for his healing. He has two young children. Our father passed in July without explaination or notice. He was found floating in my parents swimming pool. My family has had more than enough pain already. Let us da save this saint. Amen
    God Bless You All!
