Prayer to be protected from sickness in the New Year


Philippe Lissac | GODONG

Philip Kosloski - published on 12/31/21

Ask for God's protection over your body and soul, that the New Year would bring with it health and peace.

As another year passes, many of us look with hope at the New Year, praying that it will be better than the last one.

In particular, we look forward to spending the New Year in good health, both physically and spiritually.

Below is a prayer from the Mozarabic Rite that asks for God’s protection upon us from every illness.

We pour out our humble prayer unto you, O God the Father,
that whereas you have consecrated
the present portion of the year by the Birth of your Son,
you may make this new year a happy one
and let us spend it in your service.

Fill too the earth with its fruits
and deliver our souls and from sickness and sin.
Take away scandal, defeat our enemy,
keep down famine and drive far from our country
all such events as would bring evil upon her.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
