There are so many things to pray about right now. Right when I think maybe my prayer life is lacking so much. I talked with a dear friend today on the phone and she told me something she had heard from Fr. Corapi (of course it has to be brilliant then, right?) and it’s not something I’ve ever, in my life, heard.
The “911 prayer”. You say the “emergency” novena that Mother Teresa (?, if that’s not right, be kind in correction, please!) spoke of (your prayer request and the memorare, nine times in succession) one rosary and one chaplet of Divine Mercy. It’s reported to be most efficacious and, at the very least, helps you to concentrate on prayer and on what it is that you are praying for.
So, I’m asking for prayer people. There are so many things, people, weighing so heavily on my heart right now. The first is a precious unborn little boy that just needs his heart mended. His name is Matthew Karol. His prognosis is fatal without a miracle. Please pray for him. We can do all things in Christ who strengthens us! You can go herefor a special novena to John Paul II that we are praying just for little Matthew. There is a special button there as well that I can’t seem to get to post here. My blog inadequacy is showing.
I have a friend, a beautiful woman, inside and out. She was in a car accident a couple of years ago that left her with a significant brain injury. She has some significant memory loss that’s she’s worked quite hard to recover from. She’s been doing beautifully. It’s a difficult road but she’s been so brave and faithful and I greatly admire her. She’s started not feeling well. Lots of headaches, migraines and such. She’s been to the doc who found no great change in her brain. No stroke, no bleeding, nothing of that sort. Despite that, she’s lost most of her memory again. She’s got about month stored in her brain right now. She has to daily remind herself of her friends and family. She is having to reconstruct, again, who she is and what her life is/was. My heart is aching for her. She could use prayers for strength and courage and healing. Please, please pray for healing.
I think that’s all I’ll bombard you with right now. There are so many more, please remember to pray for all of the unborn, and their parents.
Please pray with me.
