Prayers Needed: For My Father and Emily
edit_button

I ask for your prayers for my father, who was just admitted to the hospital. Please pray for him. Also please pray for Emily. I just got this email about her from a member of the Holy Souls Prayer Group:

I do have to beg you all for your prayers for my niece, Emily. She is an exceptional 12 year old girl who has cystic fibrosis. My brother just let us know that her lung functioning has not been good and she is going in for special treatment the week of 2/20, if hospital space is available.

Please, please storm heaven for this little girl that there will be a turnaround in her lung functioning. And pray for a miracle that a cure can be found for CF for Em, her sister Liz and everyone with this illness. With all the research the CF Foundation does, a breakthrough for CF would very likely benefit patients with many genetic illnesses. The CF Foundation does not do embryonic stem cell research. May God reward them for not harming innocents in their search for a cure.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

O, Lord, whose very touch healed, please save them and heal them from sin and illness of mind and body. My Lord, I place these requests in your Sacred Heart. Please hear me in your mercy. Amen

Prayer to St. Anthony:

Compassionate St. Anthony, you are called the "Miracle Worker" by those who have been blessed by your special friendship. I ask you to look with favor on (name the person) who is weak and failing.

Great St. Anthony, come to the assistance of (name). Obtain for him/her health in mind and body, and the strength to accept all suffering in union with Christ, our Savior through your intercession.

Loving St. Anthony, console all those who are afflicted, and guide them to the heart of the Divine Physician, where they will obtain compassion, mercy and hope. Please O loving, St. Anthony, may your prayers reach the Sacred Heart of Our Savior. Amen.
