This prayer written by Padre Pio can be used to ask God for healing.

St. Padre Pio is widely known around the world for his powerful heavenly intercession and his prayer for healing. He had an unshakable faith in God and continues to intercede for the Christian faithful.

Countless miracles have been attributed to him, both during his life and after his death.

Here is a short prayer for healing, written by St. Padre Pio, that relies on God’s strength and meditates on the Passion,

St. Padre Pio’s Prayer for Healing

O my Jesus, give me Your strength when my weak nature rebels against the distress and suffering of this life of exile, and enable me to accept everything with serenity and peace.

With my whole strength I cling to Your merits, Your sufferings, Your expiation, and Your tears, so that I may be able to cooperate with You in the work of salvation.

Give me strength to fly from sin, the only cause of Your agony, Your sweat of blood, and Your death. Destroy in me all that displeases You and fill my heart with the fire of Your holy love and all Your sufferings.

Clasp me tenderly, firmly, close to You that I may never leave You alone in Your cruel Passion. I ask only for a place of rest in Your Heart.
