Dad who just had surgery now has shingles; I have vertigo

My elderly father, who just underwent gallbladder surgery, has had a setback. He has now been diagnosed with shingles. He’s in a lot of pain. Also, I have benign positional vertigo. After a remission several weeks, it has returned. The condition limits what I can do – and therefore I can’t help my dad as much as I would like to.

The family is stressed and we need God’s strength and healing at this difficult time. Your prayers, as always, are much appreciated.

May our loving God strengthen you and your father in this difficult time and shower you with grace and peace. I will continue to include you both in my daily prayer.

Prayers said for your elderly father who underwent gallbladder surgery. Sorry to hear he had a setback with the shingles. I hope the pain improves and he recovers once again quickly.

I pray your positional vertigo becomes more manageable as time goes by. May God grant you strength and healing and some peace during this difficult time.
Blessings,
Mary.

Dear Lord please grace this family with improving health. While healing please grant them the ability to turn their suffering to good purpose. Amen.

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 and deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Most holy apostle St. Jude Thaddeus, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of the enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases and of things despaired of. Pray for njlisa and her father who are so needy; make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired. Come to their assistance in this great need that they may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all their necessities, tribulations and sufferings and that they may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise you, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.

Oh, my word. Know that your Father is in my prayers. I was innoculated for shingles
and it could very well be myself. Also, about 20 years ago, went thru a bout with
unexplained vertigo and headaches. My heart goes out to you. May God grant you
both healing and grace.

Praying hard for you and your Dad.

Thank God my vertigo symptoms have seemingly gone away. That is amazing. Last time I had vertigo, the symptoms took months to disappear. I’m not out of the woods, but my progress is incredible – given how awful the symptoms were yesterday. I’m still waiting for news on Dad. It turns out he doesn’t have shingles. But we’re waiting for an accurate diagnosis. Please continue your prayers, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
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

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me.Amen
