Default Prayer for a safe and successful Medical Mission

Some of my fellow parishioners are embarking on their annual Medical Mission to a third world country.

My friends have asked for support on this mission in April. The most crucial support that we can give will only take a few minutes. Please pray for them ... for their safety ... for direction and guidance for the mission team ... and for the best outcomes for the people they see and treat.

The group is four doctors, five nurses and some translators. They pay all their own expenses and pay for all the medical supplies. They will treat 1000 patients.

Their site is in the mountains, six hours from the capital.

And there is no other source of medical care.

And so, please pray for the success of their mission and for the safe return.

I'm not mentioning the name of the country; it is a dangerous place. Or the dates of their departure and expected return.

And ... we need to find a way to obtain financial support from private sources ... it would be unreasonable and inappropriate to include an appeal in this forum for people I personally know but who do not have "public vetting". Over the years, I have learned that there are many such private missions, being totally funded by the individuals involved. With no bureaucracy, with no government funding, with no paperwork for grant applications.

So we need to pray to find a way ... maybe someone has an idea of a non-bureaucratic way of vetting. These friends of mine don't even have a Web site. They just take time off from work and go and care for the poor without any outside support and without anyone on the outside even noting it.

So, please take a minute and pray for them.

Thanks.

- Al

Praying in agreement of what you have asked for.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Lord, you told us that whatever we do for the least of our brothers, we do for You. We ask You now to help us serve You better. Your missionaries are champing at the bit to do Your will. If You would please give them a sign and bless them with the discernment to recognise it when they receive it, we are forever in Your debt.

Glory be to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.

Francis Xavier, patron saint of missionaries, pray for us.

What a blessing this group of people are! I will be praying for them and for those whom they treat. I will also pray for their safety and for funds to become available to support their mission. God speed!

Dios te salve Maria
llena eres de gracia
El Senor es contigo
bendita tu eres
entre todas las mujeres
y bendito es el fruto
de tu vientre Jesus

Santa Maria madre de Dios
ruega por nosotros
los pecadores
ahora y en la hora
de nuestra muerte

Amen

Father, we your humble servants
come to you begging for the safe
keeping of this group of truly upstanding
people. We ask you to guide them
to this place and home again without
incident. We also ask that you use them
to witness to others through their words and
through their actions.
Grant that they be allowed to assist you
in the healing of these people who are in
need of medical attention.
We ask all of this in the name of Jesus.
AMEN

This is a posting of thanks and appreciation for all the prayers.

My friends returned home safely.


They said that this was the first time that they had ever asked for outside prayers in the five years that they have been performing these medical missions.

Well ... it turned out that they really needed the extra prayers this time. It was only through the Grace of God that they survived.

There was some "unrest" and they drove into a rebel roadblock/ambush just as some government troops arrived to clear the road. My friends were in the crossfire in a van with windows ... no protection at all. Machine gun bullets were flying everywhere. It got worse, but somehow they escaped with no injuries although they got the youknowwhat scared out of them.

So, they are back safe and sound ... thanks be to God.
