Just did a few minutes on Relevant Radio as Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey sits in for Drew Mariani, and we discussed the plight of Ashley Bridges, and prayed for her on the air, using this prayer, which I am posting here for anyone who is seeking it out:
Lord, the one you love is sick…it’s Ashley Bridges, whose love has been so great, and whose desire, in the wealth of your greatness and your mercy, is so very small. Have mercy upon this dying mother, O Divine Physician, as in scripture you had mercy on mothers and their dying children. In your manifold power, fulfill the promise of your own lips, Lord, “If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.” We ask now, on Ashley’s behalf — in all simplicity and with a most child-like faith — and for the sake of light, and of love, for real healing of body, mind and spirit, for Ashley and her family. Have mercy on me, a sinner, and give your blessings to this family. In your Holy Name, I pray.
Prayer is never wasted, and our generosity of spirit is never ignored by God, who will always surpass it. Let’s keep praying for Ashley.
If you want to pray with that recording, the archives should be up later.
