June 7th – Day of Prayer for Cancer

Day of Prayer for Cancer

June 7th – 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 June 7th, 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.

    Dear Saint Jude,

    I have pancreatic cancer. I have a large tumor located in the body of the pancreas and a potential suspected smaller tumor located in the liver. So far the pancreatic cancer has been stabilized with numerous sessions of chemotherapy. The cancer is presently inoperable. The large pancreatic tumor is operable but the smaller suspected liver tumor is not.operable. The cancer may spread if the liver tumor is operated on. The liver tumor cannot be treated with radiation. It can only be treated with more chemotherapy. This will not cure the cancer. It will only stabilize the cancer and may keep it from spreading. I have completed a new round of Gemibraxane chemotherapy treatments at Geisinger Medical Center in Lewisburg, PA. I have completed 12 treatments with the chemotherapy over a 4 month period. If the chemotherapy treatments are successful and the suspected smaller tumor in the liver is destroyed or does not exist at all and there are no new tumors found in the liver, it may be possible to operate on the larger tumor in the pancreas and remove it. I may have a fighting chance to survive if there are no recurrences of the cancer following surgery. The UPMC Hillman Cancer Center in Pittsburgh is conducting a molecular DNA test using previously biopsied tissue from my pancreatic tumor. The results of the DNA testing would help the doctors to develop the best precision treatment for my pancreatic cancer. The precision treatment would provide the doctors the guidelines to select the best possible chemotherapy drugs to treat my pancreatic cancer and would help provide the best possible outcome for my cancer.

    Dear Saint Jude, please pray for me that through your powerful prayerful intercession together with the intercession of the most beloved Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, this sincere and heartfelt request will reach the Sacred Heart of Her Son Jesus Christ and will be made known to God The Father and God The Holy Spirit. I pray that I will be blessed with the Grace Of Their Favor and will be healed of this deadly cancer through the standard cancer treatments, through the cancer treatment advancements at the major Cancer Research Centers in the country, and through the power of the great Spiritual Physician and Healer, Almighty God Himself. I truly need to be healthy in mind, body, and soul if I am going to continue to become the good, faithful, and humble servant for God and mankind that Jesus wants me to be. This great favor I ask in the precious name of Jesus Christ.

    May all Praise and Honor and Glory be to God! Amen!
