Day of Prayer For Cancer

Join us on the first Wednesday of every month as we call upon St. Jude for the healing of cancer.

Shrine Of St. Jude At OLG

During difficult times in our life and the lives of those we love, we remember the power of prayer. Cancer is a burden that impacts whole families and a prayer for cancer can bring hope, comfort and relief to everyone affected.


Prayer for Cancer

God of healing mercy, in Jesus your Son you stretch out your hand in compassion, restoring the sinner, healing the sick, and lifting up those bowed down. Embrace us now in your loving care, particularly those afflicted with cancer, for whom this intention is offered. May the Spirit of Jesus bring us all health in soul and body, that with joy and thanksgiving we may praise you for your goodness, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Send Your Prayer or Petition

Thank you for taking the time to pray with St. Jude. May the hope of St. Jude remain alive in your heart. Send your personal petition to the altar of St. Jude. We will deliver your prayer to the altar of St. Jude at the National Shrine of St. Jude in Chicago.

You can also join other St. Jude devotees in praying for those who suffer from cancer by visiting our Prayer Circle to share your prayers for the healing of cancer with our online community of devotion.
