A Prayer in sickness…

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 sick, pray for me.
