O Jesus, You suffered and died for us;

You understand suffering;

Teach me to understand my suffering as You do;

To bear it in union with You;

To offer it with You to atone for my sins

And to bring Your grace to souls in need.

Calm my fears; increase my trust.

May I gladly accept Your holy will and become more like You in trial.

If it be Your will, restore me to health so that I may work for Your honor and glory and the salvation of all men.


Mary, help of the sick, pray for me.
