Catholic Prayer: Prayer to St Anne on Behalf of a Sick Person
O Good St. Anne, so justly called the mother of the infirm, the cure of those who suffer from disease, look kindly upon the sick person for whom I pray; alleviate his (her) sufferings, cause him (her) to sanctify them by patience and by complete submission to divine will; finally deign to obtain health for him (her) and with it the firm resolution to honor Jesus, Mary, and thyself by the faithful performance of his (her) duties.
But merciful St. Anne, I ask thee, above all, salvation of the soul, rather than bodily health, for I am convinced that this fleeting life is given us solely to assure us a better one. Now, we cannot obtain that better life without the help of God's graces. I earnestly beg them of thee for him (her) and for myself, through the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ, through the intercession of His Immaculate Mother and through they efficacious and powerful mediation, O glorious St. Anne. Amen.
