If you could ask for prayers for a Catholic family here in Topeka I would appreciate it. Their 11 year old son had a stroke and is in ICU with multiple areas of bleeding into his brain.
Father, hear our prayer for this boy’s complete healing in body, soul, and spirit. 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. Dymphna, pray for them. We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
In addition, I wanted to let folks know that your prayers for my severely depressed friend are helping and she is doing better. Thanks be to God through our Lord Jesus Christ!
