Deliver Us from Our Present Sorrows

Lord God,
grant that we, your servants,
may rejoice in constant health
of mind and body,
that we may be delivered
from our present sorrows,
and rejoice with you forever;
through Christ our Lord.

Translated and modified for

The Latin original has this phrase after “…of mind and body,”: “…and through the intercession of the glorious, blessed perpetual Virgin Mary, be delivered from our present sorrows…”

Original in Latin:

Concéde nos fámulos tuos, quǽsumus Dómine Deus, perpétua mentis et córporis sanitáte gaudére: et gloriósa beátæ Maríæ semper Vírginis intercessióne, a præsénti liberári tristítia, et ætérna pérfrui lætítia. Per Christum Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
