For my mother
« on: April 23, 2012, 01:35:54 PM »
I would like to ask you all to pray for my mother. She has some serious problems with her back. and she is almost in constant pain. Today, I had to help her up from the chair and she isn't even 50 yet.

Thank you.

Through the intercessions of the Theotokos, St.s Nicholas, Cosmas, and Damien, may your mother find healing in the Lord.

Lord have mercy. St. Pantaleimon, 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!

Has she seen a doctor?  Perhaps a chiropractor might help.
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.

Several. I don't remember the details but it's something that won't easily go away.

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
