Prayers for Andrew
« on: October 17, 2008, 09:33:04 PM »
This information came to me through UOC distribution list.

A 16-years old Orthodox Christian Andrew, a native of Canada and a close relative of one of the most prominent spiritual leaders of UOC, need your prayers. During the last year, Andrew has been in a heroic battle against brain stem cancer. Currently, he undergoes treatment in Hungary. For Andrew's particular case, nothing was available in North America.

Father Walter Makarenko in Ontario, offered to organize a short prayer service -- a Moleben -- to be read at the conclusion of this Sunday's church service, approximately 11:30 AM EST.   
 
As Andrew's mother wrote: "I trust the power of prayer will reverberate itself around the world -- considering we're all in different cities -- and help to bring about a total recovery"

This lady asks to acknowledge Andrew in prayers around 11:30 AM on Sunday. 

Additionally, if it possible for those who will be serving Divine Liturgies and supplicatory services / molebens during the next couple of days, would you please include Andrew in your list. Also, if you are planning to provide a list of your family and friends to one of such services any way, would you please just add the name of Andrew, our brother in Christ, who remains in an extremely critical situation when you read this paragraph.

Thank you very much and may God give you His blessings for doing so.

Lord, have mercy on Your servant Andrew. Look down upon him in his distress-his present infirmity. Pour out upon him Your healing power, Oh Physician of souls and bodies! Be with all his caregivers who attend to him. Grant to  them wisdom and skillfully guide their hands as they treat him!

Lord, have mercy.

Through the prayers of Mari Mina and St. Nektarios, Lord raise up Thy servant Andrew, and through the prayers of SS Cosmos and Damian and Pantelemon, bless the work of the Hungarians!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
