Prayers after Miscarriage
« on: March 29, 2006, 02:39:40 AM »
Hey all,

My cousin had a miscarriage recently.  I ask that you all remember her and the little soul in your prayers.  She's doing well, but who couldn't use the prayers of the faithful.
(Throw in a few for me too, while you're at it--the good Lord bless you for it).

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner

Lord, have mercy on you, your cousin, and her departed Child (may their memory be eternal).
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Lord, heal and comfort Theodore, his cousin, and all the medical practitioners involved. Grant rest to the soul of her child, and place the child where there is no suffering, sighing, or sorrow.

Miscarrying a child does hurt, and there are special prayers which I would write down right now except that I don't have my Euchologion with me. They will be said sometime today, though; the important thing is for you and your cousin to know that prayers are being said for everyone involved, even the medical folks, since things like this take their spiritual toll.
