Every time you say this prayer, 1000 souls are released from purgatory

The Prayer of St. Gertrude
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus,
in union with the Masses said throughout the world today,
for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere,
for sinners in the universal church, those in my own church,
those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

Prayer for Healing
O Heavenly Father, God of Love, You gave us Your Son Jesus to be not only Physician of our souls
but also Healer of our bodies and minds. Lord Jesus, I turn to You in this time of illness.
Please come to me now and lay Your healing hands on me.
Let the warmth, peace and healing power of Your Spirit fill me now with Your life and love.
I receive You, Lord Jesus! Heal me according to Your Divine Will, Lord Jesus,
and enable me to serve You with a healthy body, soul and spirit.
May Your Joy, O Lord, be my strength this day. Amen

Ancient Prayer to the Virgin Mary
We turn to you for protection, holy Mother of God. Listen to our prayers and help us in our needs.
Save us from every danger glorious and blessed Virgin.

Healing Prayer for Others
Heavenly Father, Creator of the universe, and Author of its laws, You can bring the dead back to life,
and heal those who are sick. We pray for our sick brothers and sisters,
that they may feel Your hand upon them, renewing their bodies and refreshing their souls.
Show to them the affection in which You hold all Your creatures, and grant them an early recovery.
In Jesus' Name, Amen.
