A friend of mine has found out he has only a few months at most to live. His liver is failing. He’s only 26 years old, and an atheist. Please pray for his conversion, and if God wills, his healing. Please pray for those of us closest to him, too.
Father, hear our prayer for the grace of conversion and healing, or a happy death for this man, as well as for grace, faith, hope, and love for all who love him. Mother Mary, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me as we pray for this man’s conversion and healing.
We ask all this through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
