November 7th – Day of Prayer for Cancer

Day of Prayer for Cancer

October 3rd<br /> <br />  – Day of Prayer for Cancer
Throughout 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 November 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 St. Jude,
    Please continue to bless and heal my sweet dog, my best friend in the world, Layla, as she goes through treatment for cancer. Please allow the chemotherapy and all other medications and treatments to work efficiently and effectively and to be successful against any and ALL disease, even the invisible. Please strengthen her and give her the courage and the fortitude, both physical, mental and emotional, to fight, persevere and heal. And please bless and guide all of the oncology staff that treats her, especially Dr. Amanda, Jessica, Virginia and Heather, as well as Dr. Lynn, her vet. And please help us to all make the best and most effective treatment decisions possible. I beg of you, St. Jude: PLEASE grant Layla a full and complete recovery from her cancer. She is the sweetest, most loving and gentle animal and she is the light of my life. She’s very special. She is my best friend. Please allow her to be happy and healthy again. I love her so much and am so grateful for her and I hope she knows that every day. I ask you to please pray for her and to PLEASE heal her. In Jesus’ name I humbly pray these things. Thank you so very much. Amen.

    Lord, Those who are dealing with cancer risk death. I think we forget that real physical pain and suffering befall those who have it. I pray you will be merciful towards the suffering which is emotional and physical. In the name of Christ, Amen
