Being diagnosed with cancer is hard. For most patients, it can feel like a death sentence.
As nurses, it’s important for us to focus not just on our patient’s mental and physical needs but also their spiritual health. That way, we can help promote a positive outlook, reduce their anxiety, and strengthen their desire to live.
Here are some of the most powerful healing prayers for cancer you can share.

Prayer through Saint Peregrine
O great St. Peregrine, you have been called “The Mighty,” “The Wonder-Worker,” because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.
For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.
(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying)
Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.

Most Holy Trinity, you who gave us Saint Michael of the Saints as trusted friend and intercessor, and as patron of those afflicted with cancer, look with kindness on your servants who this day invoke his name.
Through his intercession, comfort those in distress, confirm those in doubt. Satisfy their spiritual needs from the treasury of your grace.
Remember all those who call on your help, but be especially solicitous of (mention name). Restore health to the person and to all who are sick. Sanctify those who endure pain with Christ-like acceptance and grant to all of us a just reward in the life of the glory to come.

Protect us against rape and other violations, guard us against breast cancer and other afflictions of women, and inspire us to overcome adversity. Oh St. Agatha, virgin and martyr, mercifully grant that we who venerate your sacrifice, may receive your intercession. Amen.
