Prayer Request

A reader writes:

A young boy in our neighborhood — Patrick, age six — has been in the hospital since Tuesday with complications following a severe heatstroke. He is receiving excellent care, but the prognosis is not good. We are begging Jesus and Mary to spare his life to the greater glory of God. His family has requested prayers to St. Jude and St. Lawrence. There has been an incredible outpouring of prayer and support within the parish and the larger Catholic community here, but more prayers are needed. I want to be clear that we are praying for a real miracle.

Father, hear our prayer for Patrick’s complete healing in body, soul, and spirit.  Give skill, wisdom, and compassion to his caregivers and strength to his body.  Give all who love him grace, peace, consolation and strength through Christ our Lord.  Mother Mary, St. Luke, St. Lawrence, and St. Jude, pray for all concerned here.  We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!

Update:  It is reported to me that Patrick passed to eternal life this evening.  May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace through Christ our Lord.  Mother Mary, receive your little one and be his mother till this family is reunited joyfully in heaven.  Father, console and strengthen his family in this dark hour through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Dear God, please pray for my husband Joel as you know, I have lost the love of my life to another. He had an affair behind my back and is now with that woman. I pray that he will reconsider and return to me. I miss him terribly, and love him. I pray that he will see that I am the person who truly loves him and that he will reconsider his actions. I did nothing wrong. We have been together so long. Please send me a sign that things will turn around. I am suffering and all alone. Thank you. I love you. SS

    My boyfriend and I have been apart for almost a year now. We haven’t been talking nor seeing each other for a really long time. I miss him so much. I am scared that we will not be able to find each other again. Please pray that God may shower both of us with His love and mercy in these trying times. I really hope that he and I will see each other and spend time together really soon. I am begging God’s divine intervention to help us be stronger and have more patience. All that we have is our undying faith in God, so he and I can get back together soon. May the Father hear and grant us our prayers. Only God can make anything possible. Amen.
