My friend’s lungs failed this morning. He is, at best, back to square one. He may be on a bypass machine for a month. His heart is doing okay, but his kidneys took a hard hit last time this happened. Prayers that he recover still needed.
My other friend’s elderly wolf had a bad morning, but rallied later in the day and is still loving cooked meat and my friend’s company.
No further word on my third friend’s mother after hearing that the cancer is inoperable and she will go on palliative care.
Father, hear our prayer for healing and care for each of these people, that your perfect will may be done in each of their lives. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for them, their caregivers and all who love them. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

My state recently enacted some very basic abortion restriction laws. The abortion industry has filed suit to overturn them and my office is responsible for defending the laws. It’s the first time in a very long time that this state has had an Attorney General who will whole-heartedly defend abortion restrictions, but the odds are very much against us given case law and the political inclinations of the judges here. Please storm heaven with prayers as we prepare to do battle.
Father, hear our prayer for wisdom and justice and guide your servants to do battle with Satan and his angels and protect your children. Mother Mary and the Holy Innocents, pray for them!
