A prayer for healing

"O Christ, who knows our sorrows: comfort our brethren who are lonely and heavy with griefs. Give courage to those who are assailed by vehement temptations; give strength to them who have no might, and when they are tried, grant them the victory. Remember the sick and afflicted, especially such as are dear to us whom we name in our hearts ... and if so it seems good to you, give health again, in body and soul, for your tender mercies' sake. Amen."

St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo
