Litany of St. Raphael in Commemoration of My Sudden Healing

Background: I have missed the first Cross Country meet and several practices this past week because of what I believe to be acute tonsillitis (my throat has been so red and swollen and full of pus that it has been extremely painful to swallow and eat and drink) and just a few minutes ago, most of the pain suddenly disappeared. St. Raphael the Archangel, my beloved patron saint, thank you for praying for me all this time!

Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us. Christ hear us.
Christ, graciously hear us.
God the Father of Heaven,
Have mercy on us.
God the Son, Redeemer of the world,
Have mercy on us.
God the Holy Spirit,
Have mercy on us.
Holy Trinity, One God,
Have mercy on us.

Holy Mary, Queen of Angels, pray for us.
Saint Raphael, pray for us.
Saint Raphael, filled with the mercy of God, etc.

Spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world,
Graciously hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world,
Have mercy on us.

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ
