Hi there,

Please kindly pray for my cousin Britney. She's only 12 years old and has been fighting cancer her whole life. Her cancer has spread and her pulse is low. She has an infection and she cannot breathe on her own so she is hooked on a machine. Her doctor says these 72 hours are important for her to get through as they are giving her another round of chemo (we dont know if she can handle it because she could barely handle the last one). Please pray she survives this (even the smallest prayer counts as long as the heart is in it). Her parents and younger brother are in agony). God bless you.

Lord have mercy on Britney and grant her health and salvation.
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

O holy Father, heavenly Physician of our souls and bodies, who have sent Your Only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to heal all our ailments and deliver us from death: visit and heal Your handmaiden Britney, granting her release from pain and restoration to health and vigor, that she may give thanks unto You and bless Your Holy Name, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Holy Theotokos, St. Anna, St. Nicholas the Wonderworker and all the Saints please pray for her healing.
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Thank you all for all your kind prayers. Britney is in Heaven now. She mentioned she loved everyone in my family name by name. And then her mom asked her "Are you leaving now?" and She replied yes. Since by the time they brought her to her home town it was dark, they let her body stay in the Church over night (as to not bury her in the dark). The Church where she stayed at was infamous in the Egypt for a portrait of the Theotokos that seeps holy oil. That night the portrait started seeping holy oil for the first time since it last did (about a year before). Her mom said her last motion was as if she was flying. She motioned with her hand as if she was about to fly.A Muslim woman who came to the funeral said she had a vision of her with a man that looked like Christ (she said she didn't know who he was but from her description we knew she was describing Jesus). She cried as she was describing the man with Britney. Again, thank you so much for your kind prayers and may Jesus bless you all.

May God repose her.  I'm sure the Muslim woman's vision was accurate and she is with the Lord now, praying for her family.
