I would be so happy if you could post this prayer request for my uncle Dan. He has been receiving treatment for a massive pancreatic infection, and the doctors had him sedated; they stopped the sedation, expecting him to gradually wake up; instead he seems to have fallen into a coma and is not responsive. They don’t really know what’s going on, but his whole body is swelling and it doesn’t look good. We’re quite distressed. We would be glad of prayers for his wife (my mom’s sister) and the whole family.
Father, hear our prayer for his complete healing. Grant skill and compassion to his caregivers and grace, peace and strength to all who love him through Jesus Christ. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for him.

My sister Mary was abducted, beaten, robbed, and her house was set on fire last night. Please ask all your readers to pray for her and for the misguided cretin who did this to her.
Father, grant your healing in body, soul, and spirit to Mary. Enable her to find peace and to forgive what was done to her so that this man will have no further power over her. Let your justice and mercy be given to her attacker that he might find your Son Jesus and be saved from his sins and from the second death. Help Mary to rebuild financially. St. Michael and Mary’s guardian angel, protect her and, by the power of the Holy Spirit, let this issue in glory to the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for her good and for the good of many. Mother Mary, pray for her. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
