Prayer Request

A reader writes:

I am writing with a somber request.  I have a nephew in first grade, and one of his classmates, a little girl and a friend of his, died suddenly of influenza this past week.  As you might imagine, this has hit all of the kids in the class and their parents very very hard.  Could you please ask your readers to offer up a prayer of healing for all of them?

Father, grant eternal light and peace to that little one, and send your Spirit of healing, hope, grace, peace and strength upon all who love her and mourn her loss.  Mother Mary, pray for all of them.  We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    6 year old girl died here in Buffalo from the flu. My co-worker’s brother-in-law’s cousin’s daughter passed away. Pray for her! I wonder if it’s the same girl?

      Pray for her family and friends. I am sure she is with the Lord now.

  • I offer my prayers through the intercession of St. Richard.

    My 4-year-old brother died of flu. It was nearly 40 years ago, and the pain never goes away. Prayers for her soul, and for her family and friends. May my brother, whom we commend to the Lord, welcome this little girl with open arms.
