Please pray for my grandmother. She suffered a massive stroke on Monday and is being brought home tomorrow to start home hospice (assuming she makes it through the night). Please pray that she will have a painless death, and for the repose of her soul. Her name is Elizabeth.

I'm sorry.

May the Lord show mercy upon Elizabeth, taking away her pain, and helping her to get through this.

Lord, have mercy!!!

Lord have mercy on Elizabeth, and grant her health and salvation.

I hope you can visit her and sing her some sweet Christian songs.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Please continue praying for her. She's still at home receiving hospice care. It won't be much longer.

She's never regained consciousness but today she started having tears streaming down her face. This whole experience has been the worst thing I've ever seen. We're all completely drained emotionally. I just hope she goes painlessly and in peace, and soon. Please pray for her and my family.

Be strong. Take the opportunity to talk to her.

Read the Psalms and hold her hand.
