The Battle Lost - and a Friend Called Home

Judy left the following comment:
Early in 2008 I posted for prayers for our dear friend Judy, who had multiple cancers. The Lord called her home last evening, Christmas. Please keep her dear husband Mike and their three young adult children in your prayers now. She was the light of their home....

We pray that she enjoys the new year in her new home with The Lord, and that her family finds the strength to move on without her.

Pray for a Teacher

The following prayer request came to me from an e-mail. The woman is a teacher at my old high school.

From St. John Vianney HS:
Mrs. Anna Valentine became ill last night while at a church meeting. She complained of a headache, her speech began to slur and then she became confused. By the time she was moved into the ambulance, she was unconscious. She was taken to Centrestate hospital and then immediately transferred to UMDNJ in Newark.
At this time she was undergoing a procedure to install a stint in one of the blood vessels in the brain. No one knows quite yet the severity of her condition but I was told it was serious.
Please keep her in your prayers.

Update on Mr. L.

Prayer Request for Mr. L

I just got off the phone with his wife. He is suffering from depression. He is losing weight and he doesn't want to go for Chemo because he feels he is inconveniencing everyone.

He is a dear man, a real gentleman in the truest sense of the word. Can you please remember to pray for him and his family. They are not Catholic but are really grateful for our prayers.

Thank you!

Prayer Request for My Sister and B-i-L

Prayer Request

One of my sisters and her husband have been waiting to adopt a child from China. It has been two years and they are still waiting. The following is from her email to the family:
Please keep R. and me in your prayers. Our adoption is nowhere in sight. Our paperwork is now expiring and the adoption agency now wants another $2300 to proceed. We are not sure what God's Will is for us...
They have invested a lot of time, money and emotion to have a child to call their own. They would make terrific parents too!

Thank you from all our family.

Please Pray for Luci

Luci is the wife of one of our Church's deacons, Ron Nelson. The Nelsons are on the Board of Hawaii Right to Life as well as involved in the post-abortion ministry Hope Alive.
They were in the Philippine when Luci fell, and striking her head. She was taken to the hospital and developed a serious and life-threatening staph infection.

I am asking for prayers on her behalf as well of those of her husband and family. Her family wants to transport her back to Hawaii but right now it is very difficult medically and financially speaking.
