Prayer Requests and Praise Reports December 29, 2015

A reader writes:

I read with sadness of your intent to give up writing Catholic and Enjoying It. I will sorely miss it as your blog has been an important part of the development of my conscience.

Can I ask you to post one last prayer request for a serious health problem that has so far defied diagnosis or treatment? You readers have always come through.

Many thanks. Merry Christmas. And best of luck.

Father, hear our prayer for this person’s complete healing in body, soul, and spirit. Give his caregivers the grace to diagnose and effectively treat whatever is wrong. Give this person and all who love him grace, peace, consolation, strength, faith, hope, and love through Christ our Lord. Amen. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for them.

Another reader writes:

I’ve got an update on the young mother I requested prayer for not long ago. As you may recall, her organs were shutting down and the doctors had just about given up hope. Not only is she doing better; she went home from the hospital on Christmas Eve. Her doctors are stunned. Looks like your readers’ prayers on her behalf were pretty effective.

Thanks be to God through Christ our Lord!

    Wait, wait…did I miss an announcement? Mark, are you truly going to be discontinuing this blog? I am so disappointed…it was Catholic and Enjoying It that brought me back to the Catholic Church. Will you continue to write at the Register?

    These prayers request are a unique feature of your blog and will be missed. But I wonder, and at the same time calling on Mark’s readers: Would it be possible for someone to start a specific prayer blog called, for example, Mark’s Prayer Warriors, or something like it, or maybe a bit more simply Mark’s Prayer Chain? Any ideas, Mark’s readers out there? Please! Maybe this could be considered as a work of mercy?
