A reader writes:
I’m asking prayers for a friend’s daughter who, after suffering four miscarriages, is 20 weeks into a new pregnancy but has just been diagnosed with cervical cancer. If she can hold on for at least another month, the baby can be delivered before her treatment starts and both may survive.
Father, hear our prayer for the baby’s safe delivery and for complete healing for her mother in body, soul, and spirit. Grant their caregivers grace, wisdom, counsel, knowledge, understanding, skill, compassion, and the proper technology to assist in this. Give them and all who love them grace, peace, strength, consolation, faith, hope, and love. Mother Mary, St. Luke, St. Peregrine, and St. Gianna Molla, pray for them. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
