A reader request:
Prayers would greatly appreciated and are immensely needed for a friend of mine, Ray North. He is a husband and father of four wonderful kids. I met Ray through our son’s involvement with Boy Scouts through our parish. I have never met a man more enthusiastic for raising and train up young men of Christian character for the future.
Ray is currently in the ICU with complications related to his cancer. Prayers for his immediate healing and comfort for him and his family would be greatly appreciated. There is a GoFundMe site to help the family with the medical and travel expenses related to his treatment.
Father, hear our prayer for Ray’s complete healing in body, soul, and spirit and for provsion for all his financial needs. Give his caregivers grace, compassion, wisdom, counsel, knowledge, understanding, skill, creativity, insight, and the proper technology to assist in that healing and give him and all who love him, grace, peace, consolation, strength, faith, hope, and love. Mother Mary, St. Luke and St. Peregrine, pray for them. We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
