In your charity, please pray for my grandmother in India.  She was in a bad bus accident a week or two ago.  Although she didn't sustain much visible damage during that accident, she's been in the hospital ever since, and it's not looking good.  This morning I received a message stating that she was unconscious, speaking at one point only to say she was in pain.  She cannot open her eyes, nor does she recognise her children.  Prayers for her are appreciated.  Thank you.

Prayers.  I'm sorry to hear this Phil.  What is your grandmother's first name?

Thanks, David.  Her name in baptism is Rebecca.

Mor, I'm adding your grandmother, Rebecca, to those I remember in my daily prayers, unworthy though I be.

Thank you all for your prayers.  Unfortunately, I don't have any good news to report.  We received a call early this morning telling us that her heart is not functioning very well at all, they suspect meningitis (the lining of the brain was irritated during the accident, and apparently has developed into this), and now she is on life support.  No one is very hopeful about the prognosis.  Continued prayers are appreciated.

I would like to thank you all for your prayers.  Unfortunately, my grandmother passed away in the early hours of 15 September in India, which is the evening of 14 September, the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, in America.  I hope you will continue to pray for her, that God, having mercy on her, will take her to be with Himself in glory.

Memory eternal to the Handmaid of God, Rebecca!

My maternal  grandmother (who was also my godmother) was especially close to me, and I still miss her!  Know, dear Mor, that you and your family will be remembered in my poor prayers along with your beloved grandmother, the newly-departed Rebecca.

Dear Friends,

Thank you all for your prayers for my grandmother and my family at this difficult time.  Please keep them coming; they do more good than you know, more good than I know.

I am sad to read this, I will add your request to my prayers.
