Travis and Melissa, neighbors and dear friends, are plain folk, Mennonite. His mother is suffering from kidney failure. It is certain that the community can pay cash for the dialysis but the dialysis center turned her down for lack of insurance. At this point the hope is that she will make it to her daughter’s wedding. Let us all pray. Let us all pray that the dialysis center will take her. Let us all pray that she lives to see her daughter’s wedding. Let us all pray for the Grace and Love of God to be manifest in her life and death.
Father, hear our prayer that this barbaric and inhuman situation can be changed, that she receive the treatment she deserves as a human being, and that she live to see her grandchildren. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for her, her caregivers and all who love her. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
