Brayden Thew - 8 mos old, 5th surgery


#1

I would really appreciate prayers for Brayden Thew, my boyfriend’s nephew.

Brayden has hydrocephalus, and has a shunt installed that is designed to drain spinal fluid from his brain into his stomach. Today he is in for his fifth surgery, and he is only 8 months old. Spinal fluid has built up around the shunt in his chest cavity. None of the doctors has seen anything like it (they even called St. Jude’s for a consult, and those doctors were stunned as well). Basically his Neurosurgeon is going in today with absolutely no clue what he wants to do, but is just hoping for the best.

Please pray that the right path becomes clearer to the NS, that there are ZERO complications in the surgery, and that this can be Brayden’s last surgery for a long long time.

Thank you!

Pax vobiscum

O Holy St Jude!
Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ,
faithful intercessor for all who invoke you, special patron in time of need; to you we have
recourse from the depth of our hearts, and humbly beg you, to whom God has given such
great power, to come to our assistance; help us now in this urgent need and grant our
earnest petition. Please grant a successful surgery, recovery and healing for Brayden.

We will never forget thy graces and favors you obtain for us
and we will do our utmost to spread devotion to you. Amen.

St. Jude, pray for us and all who honor thee and invoke thy aid.

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.

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

Heavenly Father we come before you in Praise, Worship and Adoration. We praise you because you are worthy to be praised. Lord we thank you for this child Brayden Thew. Jesus you said in you word in Matthew 19:14 “…suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for to such belongeth the kingdom of heaven.” Lord we bring this child unto you. We submit him into your care. We ask that you be merciful unto him and grant him a total and complete healing. Heavenly Father we consecrate him to you Most Precious Blood that was shed for us. For you word said in 1 Peter 2:24 “who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed” Lord we claim healing in the Name of Jesus for this little eight month old child. You already suffered for his healing and salvation. We declare that satan has no authority over him for he is a child of God. Today is the day of Liberation for this child. Today is the day of healing for this child. Lord we know what is impossible for man is possible for God. Luke 18:27. We can do nothing on our own so we seek you face in this time of need. Father many have been healed in your name and in the name of Jesus, the rich woman’s son from Shemun (2 Kings 4:32-37), Naaman (2 Kings 5), Jairus’ daughter and the woman who touched the hem of your garment (Luke 8: 40). Lord if you did it for them you can do it for Brayden because your word said in Acts 10:34 “…of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons” For you are the alpha and the omega, Jehovah Rophe, our healer, and our comforter in time of need. We thank you for his caregivers. We pray you will grant them peace, patience and longsuffering and also the grace to know you in this time of trial. We ask all of this in the Name Of Our Lord Jesus Christ and by the Power of the Holy Spirit. We thank you for the healing of this child. We thank you for the healing of this child. We thank you for the healing of this child. Amen, Amen and Amen.

Jesus have mercy on Brayden,
Jesus heal Brayden,
Jesus save Brayden,
Jesus free Brayden. (Rosary of Liberation)

**Dear Lord Jesus,
eternal Son of God,
You chose to become a little child
although You could have taken on
a fully developed nature of an adult.
You loved children for their innocence and said:
“The Kingdom of God belongs to such as these”"
(1 Kings 18:16).
Bless little Brayden and give him abundant grace
and health. Watch over him and send
him and army of your angels to hold him
up in the face of this illness.
Hold up his parents and grant them peace.
We ask this in Your Holy Name!
AMEN

If Jesus makes Brayden free, Brayden will be free indeed.

Jesus have mercy on Brayden,

Jesus save Brayden,
Jesus free Brayden. (Rosary of Liberation)
