Prayer to Saint Martin of Porres

Prayer for Healing

You were a healer of many sick people in your time, O Saint Martin.

You gave your patients medicines coming from herbs and plants, and most of all,
you healed them through your prayers and the touch of your hands.
How people ran after you in search for healing.

I kneel down before you seeking your help for the many infirmities that I encounter
in myself and in others.

I know that we have to carry our daily cross and part of this is to
embrace wholeheartedly our sickness and our pains.

Give us then the courage to imitate your attitude of carrying the cross.

Heal my fears which are the most terrible of my sicknesses.

Remove my fears, and I will already be contented. Amen.

St. Martin de Porres, pray for us.
