My little nephew, Benedict (6 mos. old) may have cystic fibrosis. Tests will confirm one way another this week. Please pray that the Lord may heal whatever ails his little lungs and breathing, as well as send His Spirit to Benedict’s parents and siblings that they may have the courage and strength to deal with whatever news they may receive this week. May Benedict and his family feel the peace and loving presence of the Consoler.
Father, we ask for complete healing and long and holy life for Benedict through Jesus Christ. Grant skill, wisdom and compassion to his caregivers and grace, peace, strength and great hearts to all who love him that he may grow up and thrive to the glory of your Name through your Son Jesus Christ. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for him and all who love and care for him!
