Prayers to St. Luke
In times of need we often turn to the saints for intercession to God on our behalf. Saint Luke, the Evangelist, is the patron saint of physicians, surgeons and artists. A person who asks St. Luke for intercession may use one of the following prayers.
Prayer of the Order of Saint Luke
Almighty God, who inspired Your servant Luke the Physician to set forth in the Gospel the love and healing power of Your Son: Graciously continue in Your Church the love and power to heal, to the praise and glory of Your Name, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Prayer to St Luke
Let holy Luke, Thine Evangelist, we beseech Thee, O Lord, intercede
for us, who for the glory of Thy name ever bore in his body the
mortification of the Cross. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy
Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy
Ghost, one God, world without end.
prayer to saint luke
Most charming and saintly Physician, you were animated by the
heavenly Spirit of love. In faithfully detailing the humanity
of Jesus, you also showed his divinity and his genuine compassion
for all human beings. Inspire our physicians with your professionalism
and with the divine compassion for their patients. Enable them
to cure the ills of both body and spirit that afflict so many
in our day.
