Cousin's wife dying of cancer


#1

My cousin Jim is an atheist. His wife Doreen is dying of cancer any time now. Please remember them in your prayers.

Thank you.

I’ve over 30 cousins, but Jim is an avowed athiest from when he was in the seminary as a young man

From today’s Liturgy of the Hours:

Prayers and Intercessions

Let us proclaim the praises of the Word of God, who came to throw all our sins into the sea and drown them. Therefore let us pray to him with confidence:

  • Lord, show us your loving kindness.

Eternal High Priest, you came into this world and instituted a perfect worship:
through your Church, make all men share in it.
Healer of soul and body, you came to cure us all of our sickness:
give health and strength to those who are ill.
Your birth is a cause for everyone to rejoice:
bring happiness to those afflicted by sorrow and sin.
Mighty King, you broke the fetters of our ancient slavery:
remember those in prison and loosen their bonds.
By your coming you became a wide-open gate into heaven:
through that gate, let the dead enter.

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.

O God, you give light to all nations: give your people the joy of everlasting peace.
You illuminated the minds of our forefathers with your light:
may our hearts be filled with it also.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever.
Amen.

Dear Lord
Lord, We are Your people,
the sheep of Your flock.
Heal the sheep who are wounded, especially Trishie’s cousin Jim. May he come back to you. Also be with his wife during this difficult time with her illness.
Touch the sheep who are in pain,
Clean the sheep who are soiled,
Warm the lambs who are cold.
Help us to know the Father’s love
through Jesus the Shepherd
and through His Spirit.
Help us to lift up that love,
and show it all over this land.
Help us to build love on justice
and justice on love.
Help us to believe mightily,
Hope joyfully,
Love Divinely.
Renew us that we may renew the face of the earth.

Amen.

Trishie, both of them will be included in my prayers!

Hail Mary
Full of grace the Lord is with thee,
Blessed art thou amongst 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 for you family Trishie… Know they are included also in my 9 day Novena for Cancer Patients. I will also pray for conversion of your cousin from his athiesism beliefs to Christianity.

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 amongst 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.

Thank you, each of you for your prayers for Jim and Doreen.
I ask God to give each of you special blessings for your prayers and kindness.

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called “The Mighty,” “The Wonder-Worker,” because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.

For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.
(Doreen)

Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.
Amen.
