A Blessing for Medicine (and those who take it)

Tonight while attempting unsuccessfully to give Boo his medicine, he announced that he thought he'd be willing to take his evening medication if it were blessed. However, since it wasn't, he wasn't interested. OK...a blessing for the medication? I've never heard of that! Less than an hour later I actually found one in the Rural Life Prayerbook on EWTN's website. Once his medication was blessed, he quite contentedly swallowed it, put his pajamas on and went to bed. Amazing!

V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who has made heaven and earth.
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.

Let us pray.

O God, You have made man out of nothing in a marvelous way, and in a still
more marvelous way You have "remade" him. You have been so kind as to come
to our aid with many remedies in the various sicknesses with which mankind
is weighed down. Kindly hear our prayers and pour Your holy blessing from
heaven upon this medicine, that he (she, or they) who partakes (partake) of
it may merit to receive health of both mind and body, through Christ our

 R. Amen.
