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).
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
