Please Pray For My Cousin John


Please brothers and sisters in Christ, pray fervently with me for my cousin John. Your prayers clearly avail much because God answered them in the cases of my friend Alessio and my driving test! John is in the hospital right now after he had an injury while he used a lawnmower. By the providence of the all-merciful God, he did not lose any extremities, since he happened to be wearing work boots. Yet he is at risk for losing one of his toes; i.e. it might have to be amputated. Please join me in praying that this won’t happen, that he will not lose any extremities whatsoever including toes, that his wife and two sons will cope with the stress and strengthen him and each other, and that he will make a prompt recovery and not suffer any permanent harm. I pray this same type of malady does not befall you or anyone dear to you! Thank you so much and may God bless you and yours with holiness, health, and happiness!

In Christ,

John and his family will be in my prayers.
May the Lord bless him with complete healing.

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us, so 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

For your prayer request:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
