Prayers for Health
« on: December 30, 2011, 05:54:58 PM »
Hello all!

I am asking that you please ask that God will give me (Maureen) good health. I have been sick since Thanksgiving with bronchitis. I am on my second round of antibiotics, and just don't seem to be getting any better.

I've never been sick this long, and it's quite discouraging.

Thanks in advance for your prayers!

May the Lord grant His handmaiden Maureen a speedy and complete recovery!

Lord, have mercy!

I hope you feel better soon.  Don't be discouraged.
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.

May the Lord have mercy and restore you to good health. Have mercy, O Lord

Lord have mercy.

Most Holy Theotokos, pray for us.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Lord have mercy on your servant Maureen!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
