Prayer Requests 3/12/04

You will sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be made clean; you will wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
You will make me hear the sound of joy and gladness; the bones you have crushed will rejoice.
Turn your face away from my sins and wipe out all my transgressions;
create a pure heart in me, God, put a steadfast spirit into me.
(Psalm 51)

Please make a special effort to remember all of the intentions of the St. Blogs community that I cannot gather together here, or that have not been expressed in writing, but rest in the hearts of the writers.

Special Urgent Need

For the people who died in the terrorist attack in Spain, for their families and friends, for all of the wounded and their families and friends, for the people of Madrid who are haunted by this horrendous act, for all of the people of Spain, and for those who would perpetrate such evil that God transform their hearts and minds into those of people befitting the title "Children of God."


It appears that Gregory Nemiroff is out of the hospital and doing well. Pleae pray for his continued recovery.

Karen Marie Knapp has returned to us. Pray for her continued recovery.

For Father Benedict Groeschel, for complete recovery

For all those living under the curse of generational sins, that they may have protection and the inheritance of the past may be made void in their lives.

For all who are suffering from marital problems, most particularly those in our own families or communities, that the Lord may intervene and remind them that a marriage is of three persons.

For mothers and families that struggle with autism and autistic related disabilities: particularly for M'Lynn, Melissa, Christine, and Betty.

For families that desire more children

For the conversion or return of spouses and loved ones to the Catholic Church, most particularly for Amanda's husband

For Neil, Kris S., Derrick, and for all who are involved with darkness in any way that the Lord will help them see light

For Audrey, who is battling anorexia, and to her family which is suffering through very difficult times.

For the men and women of the American Armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and for their families, may the Good Lord provide sustenance, support, compassion, and love that these separated families might continue to grow in strength and love.

Special Prayer Projects:

(1) Chris Keith, the young lady whose biopsy went poorly got the results of that biopsy--carcinoma of the liver. The cancer is metastatic from colon cancer. Surgery has taken place to treat the colon cancer.

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, Janet and Louis, Peter Kucera, and for all who are seeking employment and suffering through difficult times as they wait.

(4)Healthy Pregnancies and good and safe deliveries: From Davey's Mom: I am with child once again and could use prayers for a healthy pregnancy. For Suki, for a healthy pregancy and a safe delivery. For Ashli and her child that doctors may find a way to help her carry her young one to term. For JCecil3 and Wife. For Pansy Moss.

Thank you for all the prayers over the past two months, Steven. Our court case was dismissed yesterday, much to our joy. And Mere's new medication is making her actually sleep all night. Praise be. And thanks.

Dear M'Lynn,

Thank you so much for the news. You can't begin to imagine the lift that it gives to my day. Prayers continue for you and your family.



Great news Lynn!

As for my earlier prayer request for S. and C., the baby has been having seizures and is scheduled for an MRI next Thurs. which implies she is not expected to die right away. I hope she has more of a chance than originally implied. Not sure about the extent of "brain damage."
