Back Surgery for 12-Year-Old Niece


#1

Thank you for your earlier prayers ... it was this same niece who had pneumonia a few months ago, and who was cured quickly thanks to your help and God's grace.

My niece has severe scoliosis and is supposed to have surgery to correct it within the next 60 days. She has worn a back brace for several years now. The curve of her spine is so severe that it's an S-shaped curve instead of the more common U-shaped curve. Without the surgery, her spine can press against her internal organs. With the surgery, there's a chance she may end up in a wheelchair if things don't go well.

My niece has been a brave little trooper and even despite wearing the back brace, has overcome her condition enough to become a star on her soccer team with the reputation of scoring a goal every game.

Your prayers would be most welcome at this time!

:blessyou:

Praying my heart out for her successful surgery.

  • Praying for intercession of Servant of God Father Nelson Baker for successful surgery and healing…

Our Father, Who art in Heaven,hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done,
on earth as it 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.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 now, and
at the hour of our death.
Amen

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

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell,
lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Your Mercy.
Amen

Remember, O 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,
I fly unto Thee, O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother;
to Thee do I come, before thee I kneel, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in Thy clemency, hear and answer me.
Amen.

Thank you for your prayers ...

244Rocket, DiggidyDog, sidhe54, kimmielittle, ready, and St Gabriel:

Especially cool how some of you are praying through the intercession of Father Baker ... my niece lives in Western New York, and my family's been to the Our Lady of Victory Basilica on special occasions.

My brother knows you all are praying and he's very grateful.

No update yet ... the surgery is still some time away. That said, her parents are already so busy planning everything, deciding on doctors, hospitals, what sort of care she'll need after surgery.

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.

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

My brother had the same surgery. I know how hard this is.

Lord,
Please be with them in their time of need. Help to heal them, so they may better serve you and your glory.

Amen


#18

My compassion for your niece.
I’ll keep her in my prayers. We can take our mobility for granted, but then there are children like your niece who have to battle every inch of the way.
Jesus I entreat You to ensure the greatest success possible to surgery fo this young girl. Please also ensure that her recovery is brilliant.

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.

Still praying hard for this precious child.
