Please add my friend, Karen W., to your private prayers and any church prayer chains/lists with which you are familiar. She is an Orthodox Christian having converted to the faith some thirty years ago (formerly an Eastern Catholic). Karen is in her mid-50's and has received some very upsetting news from her doctor regarding her most recent CAT scan. She will be going into the hospital tomorrow for further tests. But we know that our Lord and Savior is greater than these tests and whatever illnesses might inflict us. Right now she is frightened and has reached out asking for prayers from any who would be so kind as to remember her before the Lord. Thank you so much.

Lord, have mercy!
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29

Father God,

Your word tells us that perfect love casts out all fear and i ask that in your great mercy that you would comfort Karen at this time of great distress. Your Holy Spirit is the source of perfect comfort for a soul and i pray that she will know the peace in her heart that we can have even in the most difficult of circumstances.

In Jesus name, Amen

Lord, have mercy on Your handmaiden Karen and grant her good health! 
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!
