Please pray for an old spine to stabilize

Last night, for whatever reason, as I pushed my home office chair backwards to get up, the chair rolled away from me and I dropped to the floor with only a carpet between me and the hardwood. I have had 12 spine surgeries to date trying to keep that old spine intact and functional so I can continue walking at least for some amount of distance.

I feel really strange asking for prayer for this seemingly minor incident but I lost feeling in two fingers on my left hand, three on my right, my left leg from the knee down and since my pelvis and lower back are essentially one large bone, it has been aching a bit more than my moderately high pain threshold. This tells me I did cause some misalignment that impinged on nerves and I confess, paralysis terrifies me.

If the prayer warriors in this forum feel that I am not overreacting by asking for prayer and even more so that I am not committing a sin by asking for help when so many others are in dire need whereas mine is not life threatening, then please, add this old sinner to your prayers.

While you considering this, please keep the homeless, especially the homeless with children on your list. These warm days can make people think weather is not an issue but constant exposure can be a life threatening issue. Some might think winter is over but it appears quite a bit of fury remains to come tearing across the country threatening who knows how many in this situation.

Lord please hear our prayers

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.

**My friend, with a spine as beat-up as yours, no fall is minor.

Blessed Mother, please intercede for us.
Hold the sorrowful-
Mother and love the weary, abused, neglected
or forgotten among us-
Give your aid to all needing help or healing-
Assist those who are sick, in pain or suffering-
Be with those needing peace-
Console the lonely or brokenhearted-
Comfort the lost or hopeless-
Guard the unborn-
Pray for those who are dying or who have died-
Soften those with hardened hearts-
Enlighten those who do not yet see truth-
Help us be brave enough to let our hurt and anger go-
Show us the way to do the right thing-
Strengthen the fearful-
Protect those who are in danger, and
Guide us from every evil.
May all who keep your sacred commemoration
experience the might of your assistance.
Amen :gopray2:**

I am praying for your recovery.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Prayer for a Miracle

God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from
the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal OldArmyDog. You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by
speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.
You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from
the dead. I ask you to send forth your healing power into OldArmyDog’s body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Praying for you and the homeless, especially children…

Praying for your health. And also for the homeless.

Its never a sin to ask for help in these situations, actually its the path of the good to humble oneself and ask for help. When we ask for help we overcome our pride. God bless.

Good day my brothers and sisters in Almighty God and His Beloved Son Christ Jesus,

I just wanted to give you an update.

Apparently, I did not do any permanent damage to my spine or actually injure any nerves; I may have bruised or pushed on a nerve here and there but I have regained feeling in most of my fingers; small numb spots were there before and I guess are kind of expected. :slight_smile:

The overall pain level has now gone back under my threshold where I realize it is there but can simply acknowledge its presence but not let it stop me from moving forward, if that makes any sense.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone. I think that when people who only know you by a forum name and the information you choose to share take their time to actually pray for your recovery, it says quite a bit about the people who call this forum home. I wish I had the words to express how I feel that you cared.

I truly do feel much better. I would be lying to say I am not sore and still sleeping more than usual but I consider it healing sleep which is a good thing.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers, the links which not only make me feel better but also reinforce the fact that I have found my home.

God Bless you all!

St. Thérèse of Liseux Prayer From “Story of A Soul”

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Amen. †

Lord, thank you that you are with me right now.
Your love surpasses all fear.
I give you the anxiety I feel.
I surrender all my worries to you.
Clear my mind;
Calm my heart;
Still my Spirit;
Relax my being, that, I may
always glorify you in everything
I write, speak and do.

Amen. †

Jesus, Help Me

In every need let me come to Thee with humble trust, saying,
Jesus, help me!

In all my doubts, perplexities, and temptations,
Jesus, help me!

In hours of loneliness, weariness and trials,
Jesus, help me!

In the failure of my plans and hopes; in disappointments, troubles and sorrows,
Jesus, help me!

When my heart is cast down by failure, at seeing no good come from my efforts,
Jesus, help me!

When others fail me, and Thy grace alone can assist me,
Jesus, help me!

When I throw myself on Thy tender love as Father and Savior,
Jesus, help me!

When I feel impatient, and my cross irritates me,
Jesus, help me!

When sickness and loneliness overcome me,
Jesus, help me!

Always, in weakness, falls and shortcomings of every kind,
Jesus, help me and never forsake me.

Thank You, dear Lord Jesus.

Amen. †

Sweet Heart of Jesus, be my love.
Sweet Heart of my Jesus, grant that I may always love You more.
Heart of Jesus, burning with love for us, set our hearts on fire with love of You.
Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make our hearts like Your Heart.

Amen. †

Prayers said. All will be well. Do not fear, the Lord is protecting you.
Do not be lonely, your guardian angel is beside you.
Be comforted, Mother will watch over you, and the
Holy Spirit will guide you.

Amen. †

Prayer Against Depression
………….By St Ignatius of Loyola

O Christ Jesus
When all is darkness
And we feel our weakness and helplessness,
Give us the sense of Your Presence,
Your Love and Your Strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
In Your protecting love
And strengthening power,
So that nothing may frighten or worry us,
For, living close to You,
We shall see Your Hand,
Your Purpose, Your Will through all things.

Amen.

Let Nothing Disturb You

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.

Patience,
Obtains all things,
Whoever has God
Lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.

Santa Teresa de Jesús
(Santa Teresa de Ávila)

Thank You, dear Lord Jesus.

Amen.
