Prayer Request for My Landlady

Mildred Banks is my 85 year old landlady and good friend. Mildred had started having health problems about a year ago, mostly related to slight anemia and a copper deficiency.

Mildred was in the hospital a couple of weeks ago, and is now back home. During the hospital stay it was determined that she has severe congestive heart failure, and she is now being seen at home by hospice.

Please keep Mildred in your prayers, and also her family as well.

God Bless you, and thank you,

Steve Smith

Prayer to Saint John of God, Patron of Heart Patients

Saint John of God - PD-1923

Dear Convert, after a sinful life, through the power of God's holy Word you learned to love your fellow human beings. Self-sacrificing, you founded the Society of Hospital Brothers. No wonder the Church made you the patron of patients, nurses, and Heart patients. That is why we confidently have recourse to you.
Please give assistance to Mildred Banks and teach us to be kind like you.

God, You filled St. John with the spirit of compassion. Grant that by practicing works of charity we may deserve to be numbered among the elect in Your Kingdom.

Prayers for my brother Randy

My youngest brother, Randy had Fusion Surgery on his neck Monday to ease his recurring neck pain from injuries he suffered in a car accident over 20 years ago.

Today he is unable to raise his left arm at the shoulder. He is being kept at the hospital for another night as a result.

Randy is a medical lab tech, and he needs the use of both arms to do his job. Please keep him in your praers, and pray for the healing of his left shoulder.

Thank you, and God Bless you all.

Omnipotent and eternal God, 
the everlasting Salvation of those who believe, hear us on behalf of Thy sick servant, Randy, 
for whom we beg the aid of Thy pitying mercy, 
that, with his bodily health restored, he may give thanks to Thee in Thy church. 
Through Christ our Lord.

Urgent Prayers for Robin

I ask for your prayers for my friend Robin Langford, who is severely ill and will soon be in the presence of Our Lord.

Please pray for the repose of her soul, and for the Peace of Christ for her family and friends.

Almighty and merciful God, who hast bestowed upon mankind saving remedies and the gift of everlasting life, look graciously upon us Thy servants and comfort the souls which Thou hast made, that, in the hour of their passing, cleansed from all stain of sin, they may deserve to be presented to Thee, their Creator, by the hands of the holy angels. Through Christ our Lord.
