Spiritual Communion for healing of the sick

Oh, Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe that you are truly present in the most Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul.

Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come spiritually into my heart.  I embrace You and unite myself wholly to You.  Never permit me to be separated from You, and may your healing grace fall from Heaven, a blanket of grace to heal the sick, stemming the flow of loss of life and putting an end to this terrible disease.  Amen
