Prayer Requests

A reader writes:

Today my eleven-year-old grandson was diagnosed with leukemia. He is one very sick, very scared boy. He’d had a virus he couldn’t seem to shake, and when his mom took him to the doctor, he had a blood test and they were sent immediately to the local regional hospital where he was admitted. His mom supports the family, and she will have to work during this awful time, when her children need her. He has a twin brother, and older sister. My daughter is a woman of great faith. Please include prayers for the whole family.

Father, hear our prayer for this boy’s complete healing, for wisdom, skill , and compassion for his caregivers, and for grace, strength, and peace for all who live him–especially his mother, siblings and grandmother. Mother Mary, St. Joseph, St. Luke, St. Peregrine and Venerable Fulton Sheen, pray for him and for all involved in this trial that it will issue to the glory of God’s Name and the good of all concerned here.

Another reader writes:

A close friend of mine is between life and death. He desperately needs your prayers. If everyone could offer up just a little prayer it would be much appreciated.

Father, hear our prayer for this man’s complete healing through Christ our Lord. Or if it is his time, grant him the grace of a happy death. Give grace, peace, consolation and strength to all who love him. Mother Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. We ask all this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Another reader writes:

I had two shootings outside my door last night, prayers are urgently requested.

Father, we pray that the victims will be all right, that justice will be done and that all will issue in the glory of your Name and the happiness of all involve. Mother Mary and St. Michael, pray for all concerned. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

What Are Your Thoughts?leave a comment

    It is a sad commentary on how feminism has infected my autistic mind that it took three thoughts before I could pray for the poor boy with lukemia. I won’t repeat them because they are probably false.

    • Barbara B.

      The boy in question is my grandson, and he comes from an intact family. The mom is an artisan baker, and the dad helps in the family business.

      • Ted Seeber

        That makes me feel better. Like I said, all three are false. I need to stop jumping to conclusions about such things.

  • Julie

    I prayed very hard because I sure hope that little boy is healed.
