Intercessions:  For our sick:
Heavenly Father, during his life on earth your Son Jesus Christ healed the sick and brought peace to those who were distressed and sorrowful.  We commend to your loving care all our brothers and sisters: grant them relief from pain and healing of body, mind and spirit; to those who are anxious about them, give your peace and comfort; and to those who tend them, give wisdom, skill and compassion; for the sake of Jesus Christ your Son, our Saviour.

Intercessions: For prolonged Illness:
Lord God almighty, your thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are your ways our ways.  We stand in awe and humility before the mystery of suffering.  Grant our brothers and sisters the faith and courage to accept their suffering in the spirit of Christ, and the grace to offer it in union with his passion to be used according to your eternal purposes.  Fill them with your peace and support them with your love, that they may give glory to your Name; through Jesus Christ your Son our Saviour. AMEN.
