Prayer Request for a Kind Loving Persongreenspun.com : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread
I would like to ask the prayers of any who so feel inclined to say a few for my mother. She has always been a good Catholic and a kind person. Has suffered from the side effects of breast cancer for the past 5 years, has done her best but seems to be loosing ground. She's confused and in now for the past two days a rehab center to try to gain some strength back. Her faith seems to be deserting her a bit even as mine makes an olympic attempt to come back. She is truely a good person who could use a little help.
P.S. She has never had anything against Protestants, Jews or any group you could come up with. Any prayer is welcome.
Thanks in advance

As a bump I'll add that I've always felt uncomfortable asking for prayers as so many in the world need them more than anyone I know.

Jim, I am sorry to hear of your mother's illness. She will be in our daily prayers. Let us know how she does.
Thanks and glory be to God!

Don't feel uncomfortable about asking for prayers among friends.
Your mother and your entire family are all in my prayers Jim.
I'll pray for healing and especially that God strengthens her faith in these trying times. I feel for you brother.

Jim, our loving God doesn't abandon those with weakened faith in such trying circumstances. In fact, He, and all the saints in Heaven, rally around them. He understands the limited capacity humans have to deal with such turmoil in their lives. Rest assured, your mom is in great hands and guaranteed a place with Our Father when all is said and done for the life she has lived here on earth! God bless her and you, a loving and caring son.

All Of you, You have no idea how much your thoughts mean to me even thoughg we have never met.
My thanks to you, and anyone I've ever offended IT means nothing more than your prayers and thoughts.
My faith is lacking, but its not my mom's fault. She did her best with me. I'm a bit pig headed. Please give it all you can because clearely I'm not getting it right.
I thank all of you who have given it a thought.
David@exite I think your prayers are worth as much or more than mine ----so keep going. I'm not ready for what I think is coming,
Rod and Elpidio as much as you and me disagree or agree " at times about what we're saying," You, are both some of my favorates. I feal very hopelesss right now, but there is no one who has not been in my position or soon will be that means more than you guys---- Heritics!!! To all that are a bit younger. It will never be easy.
-- Jim (email@example.com), November 05, 2004.
Please don't think I just called you an heritic. If it sounded that way, it was only in a good way.
-- Jim (firstname.lastname@example.org), November 05, 2004.
I have and will continue to pray for your Mom and family. God understands when someone is sick that their mind is not working the same as when they are well. We can all trust in Gods love and mercy.
May God bless your Mom.

my grandmother died of breast cancer many years ago, and i know what ordeals you face when fighting it. My prayers go out to you and your mother that God will bring you peace and comfort, but mostly strength of faith and resolution.
Dearest God, Dearest Jesus, Dearest Most Holy Spirit,
Keep Jim and his mother in your hearts and will, bring them peace and strength, comfort in their time of need. Without you we all flounder, but under your guidance and your kind hand are the flocks of man brought to salvation and rest.
Grant Jim's mother respite from her pain and courage in her faith. Give her resolution to face the trials that lay ahead of her. Help Jim continue his path as a bastion of faith and example for his afflicted mother, that she may be inspired by his acts. Help these, two of your servants, to do all they may to bring you glory with everything they do.
This I humbly ask of you, Amen.

Thank You all again.

You and your mom have a circle of friends who have embraced you all in prayer. Surely, God has embraced us all and especially your mom. Our world can never have the peace and love that Our Father God will shed on us in Heaven. Heaven is always the better place to be. There is joy in what awaits us all in Heaven with Jesus, the Angels, all our loved ones, there with God. It is difficult to put into words what we all will eventually go through, so we continue to pray because God hears our prayers.

God bless you
