I would request prayers for my sister-in-law’s unborn child. He has hydrocephalus, a smaller than average brain and abnormal kidneys. Doctors are not optimistic that he will survive until term due to low amniotic fluid, and if he does his life is expected to be short. Please pray for the health of the child and comfort, strength, and grace for his parents. I request in particular the intercession of saints Jude and Giuseppe Moscati.
Father, hear our prayer for this child and his mother, their caregivers, and all who love them. Let your Name be glorified in this life that you have created to share in your glory forever. Mother Mary, and Sts. Jude and Giuseppe Moscati, pray for them. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
