St. Anthony Prayer for a Sick Loved One
St. Anthony, you always helped those in need. I fervently seek your heavenly intercession now for (here name) who is ill and in need of your miraculous assistance. Give strength to (name) so that he/she may experience God’s blessings and goodness at this time. May his/her sufferings be lessened and confidence in God’s Divine Providence be increased.
St. Anthony, you were a true friend to the sick and offered them your compassionate care in powerful acts of healing. Stay near to (name) now with your protection. Console our anxious hearts and grant that our physical and emotional sufferings be a source of purification and growth for eternal life. Amen.
