The strongest prayer to Nicholas the Wonderworker about the health of an adult and a child
Nikolai Ugodnik is a special saint for me. When my beloved grandfather went to the Lord (he was also called Nicholas), I constantly prayed to the Benefactor for his soul.
Over time, it began to seem to me that in such a prayer I feel the intimate presence of a loved one who left our family so early.
Therefore, now I pray to the grandfather’s “nominal” saint constantly, for various reasons — because of fear, financial “holes”, asking for a prompt solution of an important problem. But more often — about the health of children or their own healing from the disease.
And he helps!
Who, when and for whom can pray?
Who! In order to pray to an Orthodox saint, a person must himself be baptized, and necessarily Orthodox.
However, Catholics can pray to Nicholas the Wonderworker — their church also recognizes this saint.
When? In any cases in which you need support from above.
Even if the situation seems too complicated (for example, doctors pass judgment on a person by dropping their hands), pray anyway, because science knows the facts when faith helped recover even hopelessly ill people.
But do not forget: faith does not replace pills or examinations, especially in children. Entrust the baby to the cares of physicians and pray that the Lord will be on their side.
For whom? Many people think that you can only pray for relatives.
But in your prayers, you can also remember other neighbors, even strangers — for example, a family or a child, the hard fate of which you learned from the news, talk shows or the Internet.
Can I ask for myself? Yes!
This is not the case when a Christian should be humble.
Is it possible to pray for the unbaptized? For children, especially babies — of course! And adults (even atheists) need the highest patronage.
Praying for them, do not forget to ask Nicholas to enlighten such people, instill in them faith (after all, having suffered a serious illness or returning almost from the other world, some people suddenly begin to think about their purpose in this life and come to the bosom of the church) .
How to contact your patron?
- If you pray at home, stay alone — it is not good, if homework distracts you from prayer all the time.
- Put the image of Nikolai Udodnik on the table (its size is not important, it may even be a pocket icon).
- It is advisable to light a church (consecrated) candle.
- Ideally, the words of the prayers should be recited by heart. Not? Write them on a piece of paper and read.
If the disease is very serious, ask the priest to come to your home.
Pray until Nicholas will enjoy long-awaited healing.
After that, do not abandon communion with the saints — read at least one prayer of thanks. In addition, it will be useful to do a good deed — it will be your feasible sacrifice for the miracle presented to you.
You can donate money to the church or a charitable foundation, or don’t throw away the expensive medicines left at home, but donate them to the hospital or people who are looking for such medicines via the Internet.
Texts of the strongest prayers
Often people turn to Nicholas the Benefactor who consider him to be their special patron by birthright, as they celebrate the name day of December 19th. That is, they themselves either in the world or in the cross bear such a name.
For these faiths (as well as their relatives) there is a special prayer for the health of Nicholas. Here’s how it sounds:
Special prayers — requests for a child (children)
Orthodox prayer rituals
They are remembered when the problem is not small. For example, you are faced with a particularly dangerous disease, or you have been ill for a long time, and you no longer have the strength to endure hardships (and what can we say about the money that you brought to the pharmacy without an account), but doctors cannot cope with the disease.
Three Day Prayer for Healing
In this case, fit any text from the published above. But you definitely need to visit the temple for three days in a row.
Put three candles in front of the icon of Saint Nicholas (even the cheapest can be), then read the prayer — mentally, but you can also out loud (if you are alone in the temple).
Prayer for help (read 40 times)
Why forty? This is a sacred number for Christians. For 40 years, Moses led the Jews through the desert; he spent the same amount of days on Mount Sinai. On the 40th day after the resurrection, Jesus ascended to heaven, on the 40th day the soul of the deceased person says goodbye to his family forever (that’s why we have taken another memorial dinner for this day).
The Great Fast lasts 40 days, since exactly so much Christ fasted in the wilderness.
In order not to stray, read better with a priest who prays in this video:
The text of this prayer (“O All-Holy Nicholas”) is published above.
Prayer that changes fate (read 40 days)
These words read in many cases — for example, wanting to get married (to get rid of a lonely fate), to give birth to a child (to get the fate of a mother or father), to change jobs (to become rich). But you can read them in order to heal from a serious illness or get rid of permanent sores.
Important! During the forty-day ritual you need:
- do not sin;
- if possible, stop smoking, drinking alcohol;
- if fasting now, stick with it;
- all 40 days to keep on the table the icon of St. Nicholas, facing east;
- it is desirable to light a lamp in front of the image or a consecrated candle during the prayer.
We read 40 days. If you missed one day, start over.
It is ideal to recite a prayer by heart. Not learned — write down (with your own hand) on a piece of paper and read from a piece of paper.
A printout or picture on the monitor does not fit!
Every day, one prayer must be read three times: once with a full voice, the second — in a low voice, the third time — to oneself.
The text of such a prayer you will hear in this video:
But in the video only sound, without text. Here is the full text:
- The most popular prayer for the health of Nicholas the Wonderworker is considered «Oh, all-holy Nicholas.» You can read it for yourself, relative, neighbor, child, even a stranger.
- However, for mothers and grandmothers there are special prayer texts that should be learned if your children or grandchildren are sick.
- If it seems to you that simple prayer will not be enough, you can hold a special prayer ritual. It can be a three-day prayer, a prayer for help, which is read forty times in a row, or the strongest one is a long prayer that changes destiny, which must be repeated forty days without interruption.
But why do we pray for the health of Nicholas the Convenient? The watch biographical film about him will tell about the life and bright deeds of this saint:
