(This prayer can be said either as a novena for nine consecutive days or as a ‘one day novena’, i.e. to be said for nine hours every hour, which allows you to complete the whole novena in one day.)
God our Father, You are God who loves me. I thank You for the many blessings You have given me.
In loving trust I place myself before You.
Let Your healing fill my life.
Give me the strength to understand what these anxieties of these medical tests mean for my life – whatever the outcome of them. Forgive my failures in carrying the cross. I beseech You humbly for (mention the type of medical test) to have a good outcome (mention the desired outcome), if it be Your Holy Will. The Saints and Blesseds whom I admire and love give me an example of patient suffering. Supported, then, by their prayers, I ask that the present stress, tension and suffering I endure may be a source of life both now and for ever.
I make this prayer through Christ, Your Son.
