Prayer Requests

| | Comments (1)

Give thanks to God, for He is good, His love endures forever.

Linda is home from the Hospital! Still fragile, or perhaps even more fragile as a result of steroid treatment, but nevertheless home.


For Carol K. and family who suddenly and quite unexpectedly lost her mother yesterday to pneumonia.

For Christine's father who has an undiagnosed but severe potassium defficiency that has everyone around him extremely concerned. He's on liquid Potassium now, which can have severe effects, please pray that these will be minimal.

For Karen (Mother of 9) who is seriously ill and for her husband that God grant Him the strength to bear up under it. (I'll be making special prayers for this one because I understand how it feels under much less stressful conditions (1 Child and minor hospitalization).

For the men and women of the American Armed forces who will not be able to spend this holiday season with their families, that this may nevertheless be a season of "comfort and joy" beyond their greatest expectations.

For Jane, Janet, Shirley, and for all for whom this season of the Nativity is a time of hardship and difficulty because of the pain of the past.

Special Prayer Projects:

(1) Chris Keith, the young lady whose biopsy went poorly got the results of that biopsy--carcinoma of the liver. I don't know if it's a primary or metastatic. Either way, I paraphrase her mother:

"We [members of the family] are standing on the Rock and are rock solid. We are all okay and we are looking for a few prayer warriors to help us in this battle." Because this mother means so much to me for the great good she has done for my friends, I plan to stand with her and her family in this battle, and I invite you all to join me. Expect to hear about this on and off over the next few months.

(2) For Katherine's Mom as she undergoes chemotherapy--that the treatment is successful and her mother comes through this ordeal with a deeper sense of God's abiding love for her.

(3) For Katherine and Franklin, Christine and Gordon, Janet and Louis, and for all who are seeking employment and suffering through difficult times as they wait.

I welcome the addition of other requests via the comment box. Thank you for keeping this poor Carmelite employed.

Please pray for the soul of the priest who officiated at our wedding, the pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas Church (Hendrickson St.,) Brooklyn, NY, Msgr. Brian F. Callahan who died suddenly Dec. 15.

Thanks to God and those who prayed, my friend had a successful, normal birth with her second daughter also on December 15.
