Place your health under the protection of the Virgin Mary’s intercession.
Many saints recommend placing yourself under the protection of the Virgin Mary, as she is so close to her Son, Jesus. Her protection is powerful and she looks down upon us as a mother tenderly looks at her own child.
Here is a short prayer for this intention, taken from the 19th-century prayer book Morning Prayers.
Grant, we ask you, O Lord God, that we your servants may be blessed with continual health of soul and body and that by the glorious intercession of blessed Mary ever virgin, we may both be delivered from present sorrows and be brought to eternal joys, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
