Dear friends’ beautiful 13 year old daughter, Katherine, is in the pediatric ICU tonight with a sudden and unknown illness. She checked into the local hospital on Wednesday morning but today was transferred to a major hospital in the city as initial attempts at identification of the cause and treatment failed and her condition continued to worsen. Doctors originally were thinking viral meningitis, but that has now been ruled out. This wonderfully faithful family needs a miracle tonight! Thanks in advance, and God bless.
Father, hear our prayer for a miracle of healing for Katherine in body, soul, and spirit. Give her caregivers grace, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, skill, compassion, and the proper technology to identify and treat this illness and help restore health to her. Give her and all who love her grace, peace, consolation, strength, endurance, faith home and love. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for her. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
