A Novena Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Sacred Heart of Jesus, we know that there is but one thing impossible to You: to be without pity for those who are in suffering or distress. Look down on us, we beg of You and grant us the grace which we humbly and earnestly implore, through the Immaculate Heart of Your most sorrowful Mother to whom You confided us as her children, and whose prayers are all powerful with You. 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.

at the hour of our death.
Amen

***Divine Mercy
Eternal God,
in whom mercy is endless
and the treasury of compassion
- inexhaustible,
look kindly upon us
and increase Your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments
we might not despair
nor become despondent,
but with great confidence
submit ourselves to Your holy will,
which is Love and Mercy itself.

Amen***

Update on Adrianna:

"Thanks to my sister, Kristi, for updating earlier for me. Just wanted everyone to know that Adrianna has been doing a lot of sleeping, but a lot of eating, too. I also updated some photos from the last few weeks so that everyone could see how well she looks. Thanks to all of the thousands of prayers, Adrianna has stopped having seizures and we've been able to have conversations with her. This was an answered prayer for me, after seeing my baby go through so much on Saturday night and Sunday morning. We've been watching lots of movies and letting her "boss" us around. So glad she has an appetite. Now we just pray that she can stay as pain-free as possible and that the hallucinations she has been having will stop. And as always, we are continually praying for a miraculous healing that only God could bless us with. We thank the 100 or more people who stood outside our house last night, with candles, singing and praying for our sweet Adrianna. It was so touching to all of us. And for all of you who were doing the same at your home, and from miles and miles away. We are taking it day by day, hour by hour, and soaking in all that we can possibly get with Adrianna. She is such a fighter......we continue to be, as always, the proudest parents of this girl. Love to all! Believing in God's will and in miracles, Stephanie"

Glory to God in the highest!!! Please continue to pray. :slight_smile:

Another update:

"Last night Adrianna ran a low fever, but allowed us to move her from our bed into the living room for a little while. She did not eat anything yesterday, but stayed hydrated with liquids. We figured it was because the day before she ate SOOO much, and then she didn't have a bowel movement. However, this morning she did have 2 dirty diapers, and we were pleased when she ate some bites of cheese toast. As we slept last night Adrianna could not get close enough to her Mommy. I was about to fall off the bed, and everytime I'd move her over, she'd snuggle right back up with me- which of course made me happier than you can imagine. Every time she'd wake up, she'd say, "Hold my hand, Mommy" and grab my hand. How precious this little girl is... First thing this morning she woke up and said, "Teppy! (this is what my nephews call me) "Go get me some milk, please!" This made me laugh and it was so good to hear her little high pitched voice, being silly. Later on, we moved her back onto the couch and she watched a movie. We also took her in her own room for a few minutes to pick out some more stuffed animals to bring into Mommy & Daddy's bed. She has more of these than we can even count! And she loves them all the same, and knows them all by name, even when Joe and I can't remember which one is which! Right now the Hospice nurse is here to help us with her meds. Please pray that her legs, feet, arms, back, and belly stop hurting her so. And that she doesn't have anymore hallucinations that scare her. We want her to be as comfortable as possible, but we also want her to be able to converse with us as much as possible. All these little conversations we have had the past few days have been a miracle to us! Last night she wanted to discuss again why bears have to have fur to stay warm. She is a thinker! Just a moment ago I asked Joe if he'd talked to his sisters lately. He said yes, and that they were thinking and praying. Well, Adrianna must've heard this conversation while she was lying there sleeping, because when he said that they were praying, we saw Adrianna clasp her hands together and raise them up, like she was saying a prayer too. It was so cute....right there in her sleep! We very much enjoyed the candlelighters again last night at our house. I cried tears of sadness, but also tears of joy, for the love and support this community has shown us. Brother Luther said a prayer for Adrianna, Joe, and me, and all of our family, which was concluded by everyone singing "Amazing Grace" and "Jesus Loves Me." I saw a bunch of children out there, with their candles lit, and it really touched my heart. I think I am still in a bit of shock and disbelief that all of this is happening right now. It has been such an emotional rollercoaster and I have moments of real meltdowns. But mostly, I have been strong in front of Adrianna, who will not let me leave her side. She does not want to see her Mommy cry. I think this is God's way of keeping me strong and also His way of giving us special moments together before Adrianna goes to live with Him. I don't know what I'm going to do without my beautiful little sidekick. Nothing seems fun without my sweet Adrianna. She will be the biggest void I have ever known.....but also the greatest gift I've ever been given. Please continue to pray for our strength and Adrianna's comfort. Trusting in Him, The Cavanaghs"

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.
Our 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.

Praying that God's Will be done, whatever that may be.

If God wants to take her and relive her suffering, or if He wants her to live on...whatever he wants is always best and far superior than human desires.**
