An update on my friend’s little baby Sophia Grace:
I am asking for a very special and VERY URGENT prayer
request for my friend’s little newborn baby, Sophia
Grace. Sophia was born Oct. 3 at 7 months, 2 pounds,
with a hole in her heart and other heart problems. She
had heart surgery which did not work well, and now
needs a heart transplant. Her condition as of tonight
is life or death because the doctors told her mother
that she just had a partial aneurism in one of her
arteries. If the aneurism ruptures, or blocks the
heart and lungs, she will die almost immediately.
Right now she is very pale and losing blood and all we
can do is pray for God’s will, but also for a miracle
that He will heal her or that she will get a heart
transplant very soon. Please pray.
If you could all say an emergency novena for Sophia,
that would be wonderful. You just say this prayer 10
times. (9 times for the Blessed Virgin Mary to help
her immediately, and the last for thanksgiving for
Mary’s help and intercession):
***[INDENT]Remember, oh most gracious Virgin Mary
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help,
or sought thy intercession
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto thee,
oh Virgin of Virgins, our Mother.
To thee do we come, before thee we stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
Oh Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not our petitions,
but in thy mercy, hear and answer us. Amen. ***
And if anyone could offer up a Rosary, or knows a
priest who could offer up a Mass for her, that would
help so much!! Thanks to those who are already praying for her at prayer groups, etc!! She is holding on, and I know God doesn’t want us to give up on her!!
God bless you all,
~Your sister [and brother] in Christ, Vicki [and Tony].
