Prayer request January 29, 2018

I know you take prayer requests. My dad’s battle with cancer is nearing its end. He’s been enrolled in hospice and is still at home. Poor guy can’t do any necessary tasks by himself anymore.

He’s a Catholic and has had confession , communion, and anointing.

Thankfully he’s still alert but honestly we don’t know how long he has. It could be another few weeks, maybe less, we just don’t know.

Please pray for my dad Howard Askwith and my whole family, especially my mother.

Thank you.

Father, hear our prayer for your son Howard, for his wife, and for all who love him, including his daughter. Help him to finish the business in this life he still needs to do and then grant him the grace of a happy death and a blessed eternity in the communion of saints through Christ our Lord, where he will one day share in the new heaven and the new earth in his glorified body. Mother Mary, pray for him now and at the hour of his death. We ask all this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
