Please pray for my dear friend
« on: January 08, 2010, 02:11:54 PM »
Brothers, Sisters and Friends,

 I humbly ask you to please pray for a very dear friend, L..., who has been admitted to the hospital today.  L... has been very sick the last few days with flu-like symptoms which have gotten much worse.  Whatever it is, could you please pray that it doesn't become worse and for a speedy recovery?  :( :(

Most Holy Trinity, have mercy upon Thy handmaiden.  Preserve and comfort her, O Lord.  In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Lord, grant a speedy and complete recovery and return to good health for Gabriel's friend, L.

Lord, have mercy.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
