Prayer Request for My Dad

Prayer Request
Just about an hour ago, I received a telephone call telling me my dad had suffered a massive heart attack. My family and I would really appreciate your prayers for my dad and my mom.

Just yesterday, I read that Melissa was requesting prayers for her Oom Sam. BTW, please keep her Oom Sam in your prayers too. There she shared the following prayer:
Prayer for the Sick and Seniors
All praise and glory are yours,
Lord our God.
For you have called us to serve you and one another in love.
Bless our sick today so that they may bear their illness
in union with Jesus' sufferings and restore them quickly to health.
Bless those who have grown old in your service
and give them courage and strength in their faith.
Lead us all to eternal glory.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Your Son, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Prayer Request for Two Priests

Prayer Request

From the leader of our Rosary Calendar. Father Duffy is a priest here in Hawaii and also a good friend of the Catholic homeschoolers.

Dear Rosary Calendar Members,

Two of Our Lady of Fatima Rosary Calendar priest are in need of prayers.

Fr. Duffy who is 99 years old and has been a great supporter of First Saturday devotion. He was removed from his apartment and placed in a nursing facility and now is in the hospital with pneumonia. It appears he is going down daily. Please pray for Our Lady & St. Joseph to be with him during this time.

Fr. Svoboda, who is in his 90's and has been a great Rosary Calendar supporter. He also has been removed from his surroundings and is in a nursing facility...

We pray for our priest. These are very tough times for them. God please give them the grace of courage and perseverance during these times.

They have been strong defenders of our Catholic Faith and loyal servants to Mother Church. For us they have been part of our family.

Thank you,
mary ann

Urgent Prayer request for Karen's Mom

Blogger Karen Hall has made the following prayer request:

I just got a call from my brother that my mom tripped on something and fell in a parking lot and busted her forehead down to the skull. She didn't pass out and was last seen raising hell because she didn't want to get into the ambulance. She's in the ER now and we are unable to get any further information. We do not want her in to local hospital, which is horrible and where she is much more likely to die of one of those new infections than anything else. I'm about to find a plane ticket to head to Virginia. Please pray mightily and pass it on. Thanks so much.

UpdatePrayer Request for Chuck

Update: Chuck passed away during the night. May he rest in peace.

He is my friend's b-i-l. He is dying of Lou Gehrig's disease. Please pray that the family calls a priest. Thank you.
