Nasty virus, please pray

I’ve come down with some sort of virus that has laid me low. I won’t go into symptoms, but it’s not pretty. Please mention me in your prayers today and perhaps this week, as well. As a 65 year old and diabetic it can be troubling for me to get sick. My dh is trying to get me in to see our GP. Might need to go to urgent care if he isn’t successful with that. Anyway, thanks everyone. All of you and your intentions are in my daily prayers–just so you know. :slight_smile:

Prayer to St. Luke

Most charming and saintly Physician, you were animated by the heavenly Spirit of love. In faithfully detailing the humanity of Jesus, you also showed his divinity and his genuine compassion for all human beings. Inspire our physicians with your professionalism and with the divine compassion for their patients. Enable them to cure the ills of both body and spirit that afflict so many in our day.

Amen.

Praying hard.

Lord, please remediate Della’s affliction and free her of all ills, physical and spiritual with the touch of your divine hand. Grant her and her husband many graces during this matter and always, that they may cultivate wisdom, joy, fortitude, and courage all the way to the eternal garden. Have mercy, Lord. Our Lady, pray with us. Amen.

I am praying for you.

**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 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**

Virgin Mother, intercede for us. Amen. :signofcross:

I can’t tell you how much I hate those tiny beasts :mad:

Prayer sent.

I’m with you! Their kind deserve to die. :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks everyone for your prayers. I’m on my way to the doctor, so I’ll update when I get back. Thanks again, my brothers and sisters in Christ. :heart:

I’m praying for you, I hope there will be no problems. Thank you for your prayers too, God bless you. :slight_smile:

Praying for your speedy and full recovery, Della, and entrusting you to the motherly care of Our Lady:

We take refuge under thy protection,
O Holy Mother of God;
despise not our prayers for Della
in her necessities,
but ever deliver her from all dangers,
O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
(Adapted from the Sub Tuum prayer to Our Lady.)

Update: It’s not strep throat, thanks be. But it has entered my bronchi now. Thank you for all your prayers, everyone. I’m going to rest now. God bless.

Ah, rest! Your words are so convincing, so soothing… I may take a nap myself!

Another update. Am feeling more like a human being than a dish rag today. :slight_smile: I even got a little housework done. It sure piles up when it’s not kept up! Thanks again for you kind responses and prayers, everyone. :smiley:

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 stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

:signofcross:

Had to go to urgent care Saturday and was tested again for strep. This time it came back positive. Got a shot for that, but I’ve still got the crud and am not functioning normally at all. I’m going to go rest again now. Thanks for your prayers, everyone. :slight_smile:

Holy Michael the Archangel defend us in the day of battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Power of God,
thrust down to hell, satan and all the wicked spirits,
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen.

Despise not my words, O Mother of the Word, but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
