Please I am begging you for your prayers

Greetings Catholic Answers Forum,

It is with sad and sorrowful heart that I write this. I have been on the phone with my family. My mother is still in a coma. She shows no reaction to anything that the doctors do. My family broke some heartbreaking news to me, I am her Medical Power of Attourney, which means I have to make the choice if ever to to end life support. This is so much more than I can bear.

My family has been asking me what do to, they will not go against my wishes. I have talked with Mom’s doctors extensively. The doctors are not so confident as they were a few days ago. They do say she is not suffering any pain. So that is a bit of a relief.

For once I am facing a decision that either way I am not sure of. I have notified my school, my SD/Confessor and friends over here that I may have to go to the United States of America should this be done. I know that I want to be there should this have to come to be.

My family wants me to end life support, but I can’t explain to them that I wish to have faith in God and let him decide when He is ready to take her. My heart is grieved.

Please I am begging for your prayers, for Masses said for my family, my mother, and I, Rosaries, Divine Chaplets.

Thank you so much.
God BLess,
Anathama Sit

Lord Jesus Christ, please heal my mother and comfort all of her friends and family, according to Your Divine and Pleasing and PERFECT Will. Help me to know through and through that no matter what happens that it will work out for the good. Give me the graces and strengthes to continue to make Acts of Faith and Acts of Hope. May Your Holy Will be done and may I perfer Your Holy Will above mine. Amen.

I’m sorry you are enduring such a heavy and sad burden and heartbreak.
Will be praying for your mother, for you, for your family.
May the Holy Spirit advise and console you.

Praying from today’s Liturgy of the Hours:

In your goodness pour out on us the fruits of your Spirit,
patience, kindness and gentleness.
– Preserve us in your ministry, Lord.

May we love you and possess you, for you are love,
and may every action of our lives praise you.
– Preserve us in your ministry, Lord.

May we seek those things which are beneficial to our brothers,
without counting the cost, to help them on the way to salvation.
– Preserve us in your ministry, Lord.

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.

Concluding Prayer

Almighty Father,
you have brought us to the light of a new day:
keep us safe the whole day through
from every sinful inclination.
May all our thoughts, words and actions
aim at doing what is pleasing in your sight.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
– Amen.

DISMISSAL

May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.
– Amen.

Hi Anathema, I’m sorry to hear about this. Please know that I’m including your intentions in my daily Masses, and including them in my personal prayers as well. God bless.

I was in your exact situation with my mother.
God will give you everything you need to do His will, trust in Him.

I will be asking the intercession of St Joseph in my prayers for you and your mother.

O God who are the only source of health and healing, the spirit of calm and the central peace of this universe, grant to me such a consciousness of your indwelling and surrounding presence that I may permit you to give me health and strength and peace, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

I will pray to St. Jude for your mother, you and your family, tonight.

God Bless.

The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you,

I am praying for you. I am so sorry - you have prayed faithfuly for me and I had no idea all this time that you had such a burden on you. I pray for you in this very difficult decision that you may have to make. I pray that God will give His answer before you have to.

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,

now and at the hour of our death.
Amen

Our Father, who art in Heaven
Hallowed by Thy name.

On earth as it is in Heaven.

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 Thy mercy.
Amen.

Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To Thee do we send us our sighs, mournings and weepings,
in this valley of tears.
Turn then, O Most Gracious Advocate, Thine eyes of mercy toward us.
And after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of Thy womb Jesus.
O clement! O loving! O sweet Virgin Mary!
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God,
that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.
