Prayer powerful to Saint Raphael the Archangel to ask for healing:
Glorious Archangel Saint Raphael, medicine of God,
You who guided Tobias on his journey,
You prepared a happy marriage for her
And you gave back his old father's sight,
Guide us on the path of salvation,
Heal our diseases,
Help us in our needs,
Make our homes happy
And give us the vision of God in Heaven.
Most powerful Archangel Raphael,
Help me to heal my thoughts,
To communicate well with my peers
And to be an open channel for your healing forces.
Lead me on the path of body health
And of the soul to be worthy of achieving total freedom
and melt in the light of God.
