A reader asks for prayer after the sudden death of her mother.
Father, grant eternal light and peace to your daughter and give healing, strength, comfort, grace and peace to all who mourn her loss. Mother Mary, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. We ask all this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Another reader writes:
First, tomorrow my dad is having surgery to re-replace a faulty hip replacement from 10 years ago. This time, the surgery is even more involved. Please pray for a successful procedure along with his complete recovery.
Also, my co-worker’s 13-month-old son, David, is in the hospital with RSV. Thank the Lord that his high fever has broken, but he still has a high heart rate and difficulty breathing. Please pray for his swift recovery so that he can go home to be with his family.
Father, hear our prayer for complete healing in body, soul, and spirit, for both these people. Give grace, wisdom, knowledge, skill, and compassion to their caregivers and grace, peace, comfort, faith, and strength to all who love them. Mother Mary and St. Luke pray for them. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
