Heavenly Father, caring and loving God,
You never fail to help me when I
call upon You in my time of need.

Guide the doctors
who are treating me in my illness.
Help the nurses and staff
who are caring for me.

Hold me gently in the palm
of Your healing hand
and protect me from all harm.

Your only-begotten Son for my food and drink,

I offer and present to You for all the blessings
You have this day given me.
May Your, O Father,

O Lord Jesus Christ,
in presenting ourselves before Your adorable Face
to ask of You the graces of which we stand most in need,

by Your holy Commandments and Divine inspirations.

O compassionate Mother, not to forget us.
Grant, O Lady, that we,
your devout children,
may be favored more beyond comparison
than are all other men on earth,
The whole world should know that the dear children of Mary
are the best of Heaven and earth:
they are the spoiled children,
who enjoy all the choicest possessions of their Mother;

Grant, O Lord, to Your Church,
assurance of freedom and immunity from harm;
give peace and order to all nations,
and make the earth resound
from pole to pole with one cry:

Praise to the Divine Heart
that wrought our salvation:
to it be glory and honor forever.

God of Mercy and Compassion -

When I hesitate to act because of fear, be my strength.
When I question my existence, assure me.
When I want to show off my worth, humble me.
When I miss seeing the needs of others, awaken me.
When I forget the beauty of loving presence, remind me.
When I run away from a call to present, bring me back.
