"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives, and the one who seeks, finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8
Prayer is an essential tool for healing and is an excellent source of comfort, courage and strength for those who are suffering. During times of illness, disease or a life challenge, nothing is more important than to offer prayer and to join with others in assurance of these prayers.
In addition to prayer, the Saints protect us against harm, help strengthen our faith and offer spiritual guidance and healing. They are our models of prayer and their intercession helps present powerful prayers of healing to God on our behalf.

Saint Blaise was born to a rich and noble family during the fourth century. He received a Christian education and eventually became a physician. During his practice, he saw so much of the miseries of life and the hollowness of worldly pleasures, that he decided to devote his life to God. He became a priest and was eventually appointed Bishop of Sebaste in Armenia. From all parts, people came to him for the cure of bodily and spiritual ills.
When the governor, Licinius, began to persecute Christians, Saint Blaise was captured and sent to prison. On the way, people lined the road to see him one last time. As Saint Blaise blessed them all, a poor mother rushed up to him and begged him to save her child who was choking to death on a fishbone. He then blessed the child and worked a miracle that saved the child's life.
No torture could make him give up his faith in Jesus and he was beheaded in 316.
Saint Blaise is recognized today as the patron of those suffering from throat ailments. His feast day is February 3rd.
