April 4th – Day of Prayer for Cancer

Day of Prayer for Cancer

April 4th<br />  – Day of Prayer for CancerThroughout Wednesday’s liturgies at the National Shrine of St. Jude, we will pray in a special way for all those who suffer from cancer. We invite you to join us April 4th, and on the first Wednesday of every month, as we call upon St. Jude for the healing of cancer. Please send your special intentions for healing and remembrance of those affected by cancer to the Shrine or join our prayer circle of healing by posting your prayer to our Day of Prayer for Cancer wall below.


We pray together: St. Jude, you are the bearer of abiding hope. I place myself in your care as I bear the cross of cancer. I trust that you intercede constantly for me, giving me courage when I am afraid, strength when I grow weary, hope for my most difficult challenges. Most faithful patron, may you remind me always of the love and healing God offers to each of His children. Amen.

  • Marlene Adams for my very sick Brother Turhan Adams, who has cancer March 23, 2018 at 1:49 AM

    St Jude please intercede for my Brother (Boytjie) Turhan Adams, so that God, may take pity on him, heal him by destroying the cancer ravaging his body and to stop it from spreading. That God may heal his inside and outside wounds so he is free from pain and for the Bags to function well without any ill effects. For God to heal him from the inside out and to destroy the cancerous growths and to stop it from spreading. To clear up and heal the infections on his Urinary Tract and Kidneys and heal the Diabetes and Heart and bring his blood pressure down to normal, to guide the Doctors and Surgeons hands during and after his operations. Please Dear St Jude, beg for mercy that he can start eating more, become stronger, and gain weight so he can withstand and overcome the effects of the Chemo, Radiation, and Operation/s when he receives it. Please let his operation/s and tests be a success. Please help him in his marriage and give his wife and her family strength to continue caring for Boytjie. Please dear St Jude, hear my plea and let my cry come unto thee. I ask all these things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, please graciously hear and answer me that I may praise The Heavenly Father Eternally with you and all the elect, Amen.
