Prayers for heart attack victims

My mom passed 30 days ago. Her heart was tired. Tonight I hear that her sister has had a heart attack. So we sit and pray.

In the church there are two Patron Saints for Heart Ailments:
St John of God and
Saint Teresa of Avila.

So let us ask the intercession of these good people who are part of our ONE church... alive in the Church Triumphant

Dearest Saint Teresa, Our father in heaven has blessed you with joy in your heart after the pain of it being pierced by His mighty Spear. Touch our Sister who has herself experienced pain in her heart. Intercede for her and for her family.

Take our prayers to the feet of our Father in Heaven, that she may be restored to health and proclaim the joy of your love.

We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen

Now we ask the intercession of Saint John of God:

Dear Convert, after a sinful life, through the power of God's holy Word you learned to love your fellow human beings. Self-sacrificing, you founded the Society of Hospital Brothers. No wonder the Church made you the patron of patients, nurses and Heart patients. That is why we confidently have recourse to you. Please give assistance to Kathleen, and teach us to be kind like you.

God, You filled St. John with the spirit of compassion. Grant that by practicing works of charity we may deserve to be numbered among the elect in Your Kingdom. Amen.

We also ask God the son for intercession:

Merciful Jesus, during Your life on earth You showed great concern for the sick and the infirm. Have compassion now on those who are suffering from heart disease. Grant them a healing of mind and body and restore their strength and spirit. Comfort them with the knowledge that we are praying for them, and give them peace with a sense of Your Presence. Amen.


  1. Please accept my sympathy and may she rest in peace.

  2. Thanks Helen... She survived her husband 37 years and one day. She died at 81. She batted well, and made a good score. God bless her.

  3. Sean please pray for my dad who had open heart surgery in 2010 and triple bye pass in 2011. Both surgeries went well however he is still getting complications and he was diagnosed with angina the last time he was in hospital. It is really painful to see him suffer like this but I know God knows best. So I am asking for prayer for his healing

  4. Annabella we will include you and your father in our prayers
